GN- There were only 4 follies this morning, and although I didn't get the sizes (my dr was actually the one to give me the U/S, so I was picking her brain and forgot to ask the sizes) they were big enough to trigger. After thinking about it yesterday and chatting with a few IF friends, I was mostly concerned with any smaller ones that might be a problem. So we triggered, and now we just wait. I'm a little nervous about the risk for multiples, but I feel confident that we did the right thing moving forward, and my Dr was ok with it.
BN- We talked about where to go from here. I had decided that I was willing to move forward to Injects, like she and I had talked about before, but not until the new year- and not until we did another SA to be clear on what the whole picture was.
She burst my bubble on that one. Since I am already producing too many follies on Clomid- she thinks that doing Injects would just make me overstim SO much more. And then she said she thinks IVF would be our best option at that point.....
Now, I don't think Injects are completely out of the question, and we still might consider it. But she said that since I overstim- I would probably just end up canceling the cycle, and we would be wasting our money.
She knows that IVF is not an option for us right now, so she was really focused on this cycle, and then doing one more cycle of Clomid (that would put me at 6 cycles total) and then deciding from there.
I'm pretty happy with that.
I have a theory about my body and Clomid and I have no idea if it has any possible validity- it's just an opinion.
I know that Clomid stays in your system for quite a while. I think that Clomid stays in my system longer than most people, and that explains why my symptoms get worse with subsequent cycles, and why I produce more eggs with subsequent cycles, and why the ONE and ONLY time I have Oed on my own, was right after 3 Clomid cycles.
Again, just a theory, and if you are more knowledgeable than I am about this, feel free to tell me if I am wrong. But in my crazy mind, it makes sense LOL
For now I'm very happy with the appointment. My faith is stronger today, and as much as I don't want to admit that it's probably because of the good appointment, I know it probably is. But I'm trying hard to have faith in God.
