Pray 4 lots of Eggies!

Apparently Clif and I misunderstood. Which doesn't surprise me really, because all of this fertility stuff is greek to me. We were not looking for eggs today. To be completely honest, I'm not even really sure what today's ultrasound was for. But it's whatever.

Embarrassing situations seem to always involve me. :) I go in for my endovaginal ultrasound - CD2. So it was already a little iffy, Clif had to I had to go alone. Needless to say I was not looking forward to this appointment.

So the nurse calls me, takes me back to the room and tells me to undress from the waist down and that Dr S will be right in. I do as she says, hop up on the table and wait. In walks Dr S, a nurse that I've never seen before AND a male intern. Great. I felt like a lab rat. Seriously should get a discount on that doctors visit. HA! Dr S talked the whole time. This is her right ovary, that's her left...her uterus is here. See all these cysts? That is a very strong suggestion that she has PCOS. Wow. Oh and here is her bladder, it looks like it's pretty full. HELLO, I'm right here! So that was an adventure.

I got dressed and went in his office to figure out what our game plan is. He gave me a prescription for Clomid, 200mg. When I got pregnant with Lilly, I was on 150mg during days 59. He gave me 50mg more and wants me to start them tomorrow, CD3.

My next appointment is August 24th at 8am. We're doing another endovaginal ultrasound to see if I have maturing eggs. If I do, he'll give me a shot of Ovidrel to force my body to release the egg and ovulate. Two days after that we'll go back for the IUI.

Oddly enough, they don't keep the Ovidrel in the office so he had to give me a prescription for that as well. But he said that it would take a long time to get it at CVS or Wal*mart (because they don't keep it there) so it was called in to some mail order pharmacy. Weird. So the shot that is going to make me drop my egg is coming via UPS or FEDEX. Love it.

Just wanted to update you all and ask you to continue praying about our little eggie(s). Pray that if it be God's will that this round of IUI would be not only our first, but also our last.

Definitely praying!!! I was able to get ovidrel ages ago and not too long ago) through CVS--just not in a few minutes. They had to order it but they had it the next day and that was fine.

Praying you won't need anymore after this one though!!!!!!

Being on Femara, I have to go in for ultrasounds each cycle before I can start the meds, because if I have a cyst that's over a certain size, I can't do the meds...maybe that's the purpose of yours also?

I hope everything goes well, and all I can say is...grow little eggs, grow!
