2nd round of IUI...

Oct 27, 2008 - 0 comments

We had 2 back to back IUI's last weekend, the 18th and 19th of October. It seems only 2 of the 6 follicles released, so our chances are quite a bit lower than last month, but fortunately I'm now on Prometrium 200mg 2x/day to supplement my progesterone level, so if it works, maybe it'll be our lucky month.

Starting anew

So the IUI last month didn't work, or rather, if it did work, I miscarried... Seems this has been happening for a while. My dr ordered a bloodtest 8 days past my IUI to check progesterone, and it was very low, 8. I've been mentioning to my doctors for the last full year that I was concerned about short luteal phase, or luteal phase defect, and turns out, now that my new (wonderful) doc had it tested, I was right! SO- we're doing another IUI this month, as my ovaries looked perfect and fine, no cysts, and now I'll take progesterone after ovulation to prevent LPD. Phew!

A year?

We lost Izzy almost a year ago, October 5th. We're finally going to take her ashes and spread them at a spot we picked out near our cabin. I am so thankful for my sweet husband, and know we can't take all our time for granted, we have so much time together now and really don't have the major responsibilities that we are hoping for. We started fertility treatment this month with clomid and IUI. We'll find out whether or not it worked the same weekend of Izzy's birth/death and that's a little overwhelming.
