Tomorrow I go in for my midcycle u/s and pending good growth I will get my trigger shot of Ovidrel. I am really really nervous, excited, and about a hundred other emotions. Ive been through this before, I know not to get my hopes too high, but for some reason this cycle is different. This time I am allowing myself to get excited, I really believe this is the cycle. But I worry I am setting myself up for a huge crash. Im worried that this one will be like all the others and now that I am letting myself be so hopeful, it will only hurt that much more if I get a BFN.... ugh IF sucks!

Thank You all so much for the well wishes. However... It didn't go very well this morning. I was first thrown off because I didn't have my doctor. I guess I knew there was a chance he wouldn't be there because it was so early in the morning... but idk I just thought he would be there. Instead I got a different doctor that I have never met before. My right ovary sits a little high and my doctor know this. The doctor I had today didn't. SO she rooted around for 15 min trying to find it. I almost stopped her twice to tell her she should probably try pushing down on my abdomen instead of just trying to jab the ultrasound wand up there further than it wanted to go. And then when she finally found i there was just one really small follicle, though I am not convinced it wasn't a cyst that is normally there from my PCOS. The left ovary was easy to find as always, and there was a follicle there too a little bigger but still not big enough... So because she isn't my doctor she couldn't even tell me what the plan was, she just said she'd talk to my doctor and someone would call me. I guess the receptionist said the doctors have a noon meeting, so if no one calls by 2 I will be calling them. Its just such a bummer. It took all I had to wait until the doctor left the room before I started crying. I really just thought this cycle was going so well... oh well I guess... there is always next month... I will let you all know what I find out when I hear and/or call the doctors office. Thanks again for the support!

I'm so sorry. It is even worse that you didn't have your doc. I hope you get a good plan and something positive can come of this.

I'm so sorry you didn't get your doc. I'm keeping my fingers crossed you get a good report when the doc calls. Hopefully, you just need a few more days to grow the follicles.

Well I talked to my RE yesterday afternoon. They are going to completely quit monitoring for this cycle. He said I was just not responding to oral meds. He also said that basically my only option left short of IVF is daily injections. So I started my prometrium last night and basically after my withdraw bleed on cycle day 3 I am going to start giving myself daily hormone injections. I know things usually never go as originally thought... But never in a million years did I think it would be like this. This complicated...

I'm so sorry you didn't respond. My last cycle I had plans to do the trigger shot and IUI, after taking Clomid. It didn't work out for me either. Words can't really describe how I felt. I never thought I wouldn't respond to Clomid. I spent around $600 for the cycle and didn't even get to move on to the trigger and IUI. So, that was $600 down the drain. I'm sorry that you have to move on to injectables, as I have heard they are terribly expensive. I hope one cycle of injects, does the trick and you see your BFP soon.

Thank You, I hope the once cycle does it too... I have a $5000 lifetime coverage for fertility meds. Each cycle I do is about $960 of that. So the way I see it I have about 5 cycles to try. My DH and I really would like 2 kids so I really I hope I dont use up all my money trying for #1. We'll I mean whatever happens, happens. I've learned its not really in my hands anymore anyway.
