Well, it’s CD 24 and it looks like my follicles are finally getting somewhere. I had an ultrasound yesterday morning and I have 2 “lead” follicles: one measuring 17 mm and then other 18. There’s another one that is around 13 that may or may not get anywhere, but regardless- my RE gave me the go-ahead to trigger Sat evening.
I’m really really relieved that this cycle isn’t totally canceled! But of course I wish my ovaries had decided to cooperate and grow some follicles on a normal time frame. But no matter- I can trigger tonight and get my IUI #1 on Monday!
I am not wildly optimistic for IUIs in general, but, even if this IUI doesn’t work, I can at least feel like I’m taking steps forward. And even if the path leads to IVF, I’d rather get there sooner, not later.
Ovaries, THANK YOU. Thank you for moving, even if you did so at a glacial pace 😉
