I think I'm ready to talk about my appointment yesterday since I had my meltdown last night. I went in for a follie check and a blood draw to see if we'd be ready to proceed with IUI #1 on Wednesday. The ultrasound tech commented that I had 2 good sized follies and that everything looked great. Nurse D. also made the same comment when she looked at the ultrasound pictures and the report. She gave me the trigger shot and told me that if my E2 levels were between 200-1,000 then I would trigger that night (Monday) and come in for the IUI on Wednesday. Great. I left thinking that everything was good to go.
Dr. P. calls me around 1:30 to tell me that even though I have 2 good sized follies, my E2 level was only at 92. WTF? It should be much higher by this point. He told me to keep doing the G.onal-F injections and come back in for another ultrasound and blood draw on Thursday. We might have to go ahead and cancel this IUI because Evan leaves bright and early Tuesday morning. If everything looks good on Thursday and we can do this on Monday, that's the only way it's going to happen. It is President's Day and they might be closed so that may throw another wrench in the plan. If not, I'm just going to ask to trigger on Thursday night if the follies still look good, have timed intercourse (isn't it sad that our lives have to run on such a schedule), and hope for the best. I am beyond stressed out about this and the deployment. I just sat in the house crying yesterday because I was so upset. On the bright side though, we did go ahead and do the freezing today. I am just so tired of the stress and the meds and seeing AF come every month. When will this end?
