It really sounds like your current OB is on top of things, closely watching you , etc. I think the follie size sounds great ! I think if I were you, I'd go ahead with the IUI tomorrow, (why wait another month?) But go ahead and start looking forward to your RE appt in two weeks from now...
I think the RE would probably start you out on clomid + iui anyway, then move you up to injectibles.
Well my OB called and talked me into going ahead with tomorrow's IUI. In fact, the RE I am going to see in early Nov agreed. SO fingers crossed that this month works!
I am hopeful that if it does not work that our new RE will let me move right to injectibles based on age and already exhausting 4 rounds of clomid. PLUS this is actually the protocal that our insurance company calls for, so that is good too!
Thanks for the feedback ladies. Hoping tomorrow morning we do the trick!
Well I did the IUI! I was a bit worried as DH sample seemed small to me- but the doctor said it was a great sample- lots of sperm and very active!! They did it by hand not machine and only viewed it under a miscroscop so I don't have any actual numbers- but she was pleased!
All went well. The procedure itself pinched a little as she had to use some special instrument to ope the cervix and to help insert the catheter she had to use a little force. But I only had some mild cramping and then I laid on the table for a good 30 minutes before leaving.
We will BD again later today and tomorrow morning. Please sned me all the positive vibes you can spare!! Thanks for all your feedback!!
