Follicles or no follicles

Today is kinda cross post that goes on my fertility blog. But since it is impacting us HERE too I thought WHY not share it here.

On Friday we went in for our ultrasound to see how our follicles looked for this round of IUI. WE have not gotten all the way to the IUI part in our cycle because something is broken each time. It seems the broken piece in our puzzle is ME!

We did FSH shots which are suppose to be MUCH harsher than clomid and provide them with more follicles to work with. Clomid we had one "sort of" egg and with FSH we had ZERO!

Lots of disappointment and sadness ensued and now 2 days of DOUBLE The dose for the next 2 days. So Off I went to pick up today meds and because the best Nurse I could be and shot it on in.

Tomorrow is the ultrasound to see if there is any change with it just being further in my cycle. If not, cycle 2 is a BUST!

So.. if you could all give us some prayers and some extra follicles and eggs to show up that would be CRAPtastic!

Big hopes and prayers that the meds do their job.

I'm sorry! It is sort of trial and error on meds till they find the right dose. Are you PCOS? I can't remember. If not, get checked for that as it is a treatable condiditon that impacts egg quality.
