We Have a Plan

I am back from the baby maker and armed with a plan!!

Next cycle we will be doing IUI, or intra uterine insemination. I will be taking 50mg. of clomid to induce ovulation, then when the time is right I will get a trigger shot to make me ovulate, then they will shoot DH's prepped sperm directly into my uterus....all this for a grand total of 770 dollars! Oh it feel so good to have a plan and finally feel like we are being proactive, even though with our MFI we still wont have as high of a success rate with IUI as a couple without MFI. We still feel like we should try this before jumping right to IVF, the RE agrees since we are all OOP.

Here is my only worry. Based on my usual cycle length DH may be out of town right around the time when my IUI should take place. Can you believe that shit? Out of all the days of the month, and the one cycle that we are doing treatments he will going away on business (he NEVER travels). He will only be gone 2 days so that makes it easier. I just have to HOPE AND PRAY PRAY PRAY that the timing works out for us. Alot is riding on when I start AF, so we'll see. It is going to going in the back of my mind, and yes I am worried about it but it is out of my control.

Before any of this happens the RE wants DH to get another S/A, which he will get this Thursday. He just wants to see if there is any improvement so far since being on the new meds. Hopefully we will see a improvement! If there is a improvement that will increase our odds of this working. So I am looking forward to that!!

Hormonally I am fine, everything came back normal. Even my prolactin level that they re tested came back fine the second time so thats good. Who knows why I don't ovulate, and the Dr. was not too concerned about it, his only response was "Don't worry we will induce ovulation" I still am on the fence about why I dont ovualte but whatev.

I have heard that some women ovulate later on clomid....so maybe your DH being out of town won't be too much of a worry? I will be keeping you in my thoughts. Good luck- I know how great it feels to have a plan!

How in the heck am I suppose to know what OOP means when it's not on your lingo chart?!?! Help me out here!!!

HAHA!! I hope this time next cycle there will be some good news!! TWINNIES are on their way!

Kim, OOP means out of pocket..meaning none of our infertilty treatments are covered by our insurance! Sucks!

Yay for a plan! Our apt with the RE isn't until Dec 1st - so we have a while to wait for our plan! Hoping the clomid makes you ovulate later so your hubby will be in town:)

Lisa I am so glad you're finally getting put on track to making a baby. You deserve it more than than anything! You've dealt with so much already that I am glad that you have a plan. I hope the timing thing isn't a problem and that the clomid can help you! Good luck!

Your post caught my eye because of DH being out of town. That happend to me on my last cycle. I took my meds (50mg of clomid) and on my last day of taking it I found out my DH would be out of town the entire week. UGH! GL to you - I hope the timing works out.
