I guess I never really updated you all on the status of my next (and last) IUI. After a few minor freak outs on Sunday and Monday, I was able to get the go ahead on Tuesday from Dr. P. to start the injections for IUI #3. I ended up going into the clinic on Tuesday morning to basically stalk Dr. P’s appointment lady. I had actually talked to her on Monday morning but she never got back to me about what to do. I figured that since I was on-post anyway, I might as well just head over to their office to see what I could find out.
After a emotional breakdown in the hallway, we discussed the information that Dr. P. had passed along. First, I was to go down to the lab to make sure my beta was negative because I had been passing clots (they wanted to rule out another chemical pregnancy). If the test was negative (which it was), then I would start the G.onal-F injections that afternoon. I usually go in for the first ultrasound on CD 10; however, they’re out of the office until the 28th. That puts me at CD 12 which is alright with me since I’m usually stimming for 2 and half to 3 weeks anyway. I guess we’ll see what’s going on in there on Thursday. Right now, I’m on the 6th days o injections and trying to be careful not to stick the needle in the bruise that was left behind by my trigger shot over 3 weeks ago. Does this sound strange that I’m still bruised?
I can’t believe that this is our last shot at this. I’m still in disbelief that this last one didn’t work. I can’t believe that if this doesn’t work, we’ll be moving onto IVF. I guess we’ll find out sometime in August if this one worked. Third times a charm, right? We’ll see about that.
