Ending with Prometrium. I'm using up the rest of my Endometrin this cycle since it expires this month and will move on to the Prometrium after the first is gone. Not my choice but it is what my insurance covers right now. I don't even want to think about the discomfort of having to insert the Prometrium.
Happy January ICLW!
To all those tuning into my blog this week I'll give an update as to where I stand, or rather sit since I am currently sitting to type this, in my trying to conceive.
IUI number 6 was done on Friday at the Tacoma, Washington branch of Seattle Reproductive Medicine. My husband's sperm counts were at an all time high and I was able to produce three follicles of my own naturally. The smallest is probably rather useless as the day of the ultrasound it was only 13mm though they can grow 2mm in a day so there is a chance.
This I declare will be my last cycle using my own DNA unless some kind of miracle happens at my age which is 43.
If another cycle dares to start in February I will have a SIS so that I can move on to donor eggs. I have my temporary password for the donor egg clinic and have selected six candidates. I was amazed to find that the five I had originally chosen last year were still available and I found another possible. I'm not sure how they provide a match for me but I know that the sixth choice is a different blood type, same Rh factor, and matches my spouse. The other five candidates match my blood type and Rh factor. The sixth one only matches me in eye color and is the same hair color as my spouse. Selfish reason to go with that particular hair color as when my child asks who they look like I can say "your father" and reference the photographs. I will tell the child about using donor eggs but I think it might be of a comfort for the child to feel like they look more like one parent and preferably my husband not the donor.
But this is still all up in the air. In the later half of this two week wait I'll be deciding on what to do. Most likely I'll be giving the clinic a call to set up an appointment. I have to get all of this done soon because being an Army wife I have to be prepared to move and move we will be doing later this spring.
If you made it to the bottom of this post and read all the way through congratulations! I realize I got a little long winded and I didn't even get into the infertility factors that I have like the Endometriosis stage III. There I mentioned it.
