Captain H is a new doctor at the clinic. Really nice man so far. He was gentle with the probing though he did have a hard time finding my ovaries. Most new doctors do have a difficult time finding them the first probe.
My uterine stripe is 12.8, really thick.
Right ovary has a 5.5 mm follicle
Left ovary has a 29 mm follicle
I gave myself the trigger shot as soon as I got home from the clinic. I asked J if he wanted to do it this time since it has been a while and he said no. I told him he has to at least watch. He did but it still bothered him. Honestly I didn't even feel the injection. Yes, I'm that good at giving injections!
I have to say that last cycle I didn't eat coconut or use coconut oil but I did this cycle. I've noticed that when I use coconut products in my daily dietary intake I have better follicle output. Coincidence?
Remember this again is a natural cycle. They don't give me stims any longer because I develop cysts. Captain H, though I though 29 mm was a bad number, thought it was really good and I should trigger today with an IUI tomorrow.
SRM will hopefully be calling me before 1400 hrs to schedule the IUI. J has an all day class tomorrow so for us first thing in the morning would be best. Hopefully we'll get a really early time.
Three days after IUI I am to start the progesterone support as ordered. I didn't even have to ask for it this time.
Last evening J and I were discussing foster to adopt. I was telling him how adopting and older child might be the thing for us. Often the older children are harder to place and would love a home just as much as the newborns. He thought it was a wonderful idea. I even suggested adopting every couple of years through the foster system of which he again liked the idea.
One way or another we'll have our family.
