IUI #4, here we come...

Started my injections last Thursday. Expecting the usual (i.e. nothing) on my CD7 scan this morning. Pleasantly surprised to see my lining already at 4mm (normal for me on CD7 is 2mm), and three obvious follicles at 9,7 and 7. And the kicker? My e2 at 69 already! This is by far the best I've responded to the injections to date. Take that, hypothalamic amenorrhea. IN YOUR FACE.

And on top of that, it was MY doc, Conveyor, who did my u/s this morning. So I took the opportunity to ask if we could do two IUIs, since this is very probably our last shot before IVFland, to give us the best chance. I was totally prepared to have to argue, given that Dr. Business had been so brusque about saying no to that idea in my last cycle. She said 'absolutely'. No argument whatsoever. I was totally taken aback. And Hopeful...

Of course, all this Hope makes it that much worse if it doesn't work. But maybe, just maybe, it will.

Oh, I am glad that your RE was receptive to your request for 2 IUIs. Also, it's great that you are responding so well to the stims!

I'm hopeful too! Good luck!

You go - asking for what you want! And congrats on great numbers. I hope it keeps going like this (and by the way, I disagree that it makes it worse to hope. I think it's impossible to keep putting one foot in front of another if you DON'T hope from time to time).

Oh-la-la-la! I am hoping so hard for you that it works. Here's to your lining-- and here's to your follicles! (I raise my glass.)

Fingers crossed!

Not to give That Bitch Hope any ammo, but those do look like excellent numbers. Tell you what, I'll babysit her for you, and hope that the Perversity Goddess works that last-cycle-before-IVF magic for you.

Hold on to that hope for now. It sounds like things are really going well for you at the moment. I hope they stay that way. :)
