Well ladies, here it goes, today was my baseline, going to an IUI this month, he was pleased with all the little follicles in L & R ovaries. However since my luteal phase this month on clomid & trigger was 19 days he wants to wait till my follicle is bigger than the 18 it was last cycle. He explained the whole process to me and now I feel better, understanding the steps - although from this site I kinda knew what to expect...just feel bettter now. OH and I found out that in NJ small business health insurance has to cover some IUI, but not necessarily IVF, large business INS has to cover up to 4 IVF....so if you work for a small business your screwed....so we can do IUI but not IVF.
I was so embarrassed because the nurse was bringing me in and I am like I am on day 3 you know that right? It could be "messy", she said yes stop in the bathroom bceause you are having an u/s. I was like, "oh right!!" but I was happy to see they were prepared they had those large disposable pads on the step and table....it was a littl disconcerting because the OB is always saying, oh wait till after your period before we check anything! It was just a moment of awkwardness for me.
