CD 1

Well AF arrived last night! I called my RE's office this morning to get the ball rolling. We needed to go over my protocol, etc. and I had questions this time since its been a while! I needed a little refresher. Here is what's going down.

CD 3-7: 50mg Clomid
CD 4, 6, 8: 75unit shot of Follistim
CD 8: Start daily OPK's with second or third morning urine
CD 10: First monitoring ultra sound to see whats cooking and when to trigger!

My last cycle (the one where I conceived baby M!) I went in on CD 11 and had (2) 22mm, (1) 15mm and a (1) 12mm follie. I triggered that night and had my IUI 36 hours later. Since I was ready on CD 11 last time, I thought it might be a little safer to bring me in 1 day earlier on CD 10 this time. I just don't want to risk ANYTHING, so its better to be safe than sorry. I would hate to ovulate or start surging on my own before trigger. I just need everything to go as smoothly as possible with this hail mary cycle!

I pick up my meds tomorrow and will start them on Friday!

I am so excited for you! I will keep everything crossed that everything goes smoothly. And I know I've said it before, but I really do have a good feeling about this for you!

Good luck!!!

Wishing you the best, Lisa. Do you pay out of pocket for follistim? I have a few unopened vials. Wonder if I could ship them to you for cheaper??

Erin, thank you so much for the offer! I am all OOP, but I have enough follistim for this cycle and 1 more if this one doesnt work! That is so kind of you to offer!!
