    US update: three 13 mm follicles (one left and two right) plus a 13 mm cyst left from last cycle and fluid again. Why?! I’m so nervous that the disastrous trigger situation will happen again. Waiting on BW results, but I bet I’ll have to go back on Thursday. I’m a bit annoyed that DH’s SA for today wasn’t cancelled after I left a VM at 2:17 yesterday. Turns out they transferred me to the wrong office, but they are all connected and someone should have taken care of it. It’s not like we will be charged or anything, but still.

  • @NYTino24 Sending some peace of mind your way and fx for good results! Thank goodness you aren't being charged for their mistake. I don't understand why they couldn't just pass the message on in the same office. Little things like that are so easy to fix. Keep us updated!

  • @inthewoods23 Yay for an awesome and much needed trip! Plus, great timing for hio. FX for you. 

    @pom9207 We have low morph as well. 3% is still right on the cusp of low, so not that bad. Where is your home country? And welcome to the board!

    @jennifer_louise I teach bodypump (full body weight class), three times a week. But I picked up two extra classes last week and it caught up with me. I didn't really have any side effects from the prometrium either. Panty liners are your friend right now! Will they check your progesterone levels at all or straight to hcg when it comes? Sending you hugs  <3

    @ramzlau Good luck tomorrow. Take notes, ask all the questions. 

    @meri-mac How did it go this morning?

    @NYTino24 Sending you all the positive vibes so you do not have a repeat. Everything crossed!

  • @meri-mac I always thought the US during AF would be a mess but it never was for me. It just get extra messy from the wand lube. Maybe Tylenol could help your nausea? My thought is if it doesn't feel painful then it might not make you feel nauseous. No idea if it will work but worth a shot? 🤷‍♀️

    @NYTino24 FX for good results from your BW! Is there anything that can be done to remove the fluid in your lining? That's something I've never heard of before.

  • @NYTino24 my RE's office works the same way - all connected. Them not taking care of passing on the message is sheer laziness on their part. Did they say why there would be fluid in the lining? Like what could be causing it again? And what does it really mean? Is it a bad thing?

  • @misshelen86 I think it's really great that you are going to start opening up to some close friends and family IRL. It really does help you feel less lonely, and you might be surprised (as I was) to discover one or a few of them may have gone through something similar. <3

  • @mvt2003 - Your office sounds so fun! Post pictures if you can!

    @misshelen86 - I've told a few people. I like to talk about things, so I needed a few people that I could text about what I'm going thru. One of my friends that I've confided in went thru IF treatments as well, and shes a good support to have. My bosses know, and I've told my dad, my sisters, and now my MIL - but I don't keep any of them up to date on the process - they just know we're doing it. 

    @meri-mac - Yay! Is your appointment on Wednesday just blood work?

    @inthewoods23 - So glad to hear your trip went well! And that it coordinated well timing wise with your cycle! Fingers crossed!

    @jennifer_louise - The nurse yesterday said that if she had to guess the ER will be Friday or Saturday! So we'll see what they say this afternoon! Sorry you've been feeling so down. I'm there with you and it's a hard place to get out of. 
    misshelen86
  • @nitnat007 Appointment is tomorrow, but you are sick so your confusion is excused :tongue:

    @inthewoods23 Thank you for the advice. I will take any and all!

    @feather_heather It is BW and US. They need to keep checking the follicles. At the initial scan, I had 3 on the left and 4 on the right, but AF hadn't come yet and hadn't started any drugs. Here's hoping for some progress!

  • I believe someone asked this last month but I can't find it or remember.... is it normal-ish to slightly spot (more like very light tinted CM) from an IUI or from ovulation?  I've did not have this with the last IUI and I've never had it with ovulation, that I know of anyway, but yesterday was pretty intense O pains, especially after the IUI (it even hurt on the outside of my skin, like if I gently pressed or rubbed over my lower abdomen on the left side).  I also did release 2 large eggs, so I'm wondering if that is a factor in this too.

  • Thanks @nitnat007 @feather_heather @NYTino24 I'll post pics once we're done! We're decorating all the way down the corridor this year, and we have 3 different groups involved so this one should be good! 

    @ramzlau @jennifer_louise It was so freaking funny to watch them run, I took a video! I still watch it back and giggle! 

    @NYTino24 that is so irritating!! Can they reschedule it for tomorrow? If he's been on a multi-day hold, you don't want to have wasted the time!!! 

    @meri-mac OMG I wish I had thought of that trick!!! We taught Rosie to do "touchdown" but that was it!

  • @kpearse99 if I remember right I think bleeding during O is possible. I don't experience that or O pains so I'm not a great source on this kind of info! Could be from cervical irritation too during sex 🤷‍♀️

  • @kpearse99 was your mucus red/pink or brown? I had some red/pink immediately after and some brown for the rest of the day after my IUI. They told me that was normal! But when in doubt, email a nurse?

    @feather_heather eek that's so soon! Are you feeling okay? (those 18 follies weighing you down? 😬)

    @shoogapoff I love the identity thief idea! If I ever forget a costume at a costume party, I'm stealing it! 😂

  • @beckylookatherbump I do flick to get rid of the large bubbles, but there a couple teeny tiny ones on the stopper that will not move. It really annoys me. The large bubbles take so much to do. I hurt my finger flicking the syringe the first time.

    @shoogapoff My clinic told me they could do the same with Gonal-F pens, but that there is an extra charge. They take they overfill and combine it with another pen.

  • @jennifer_louise it was very light tinted brown. There was some cramping with the IUI yesterday, none with the first one, so I'm sure it's just all from that. I might email them to be sure though! Thanks :)

  • @nitnat007 thank you! The RE from my home country (China) wasn’t too concerned about that 3% morph, too. He suggested us do a couple of rounds of timed intercourse or IUI before moving to IVF.

    I bought DH GNC megamen, which seems to include everything -- zinc, folic acid, vitamin E etc... What type of supplements does YH take, if any? :D

  • I know I'm missing people still. Just trying to catch up!

    @beckylookatherbump I'm so sorry that you're dealing with waiting on the RE. The timing aspect of going through this is such a challenging part of it, and one that a lot of people don't really consider. 

    @meri-mac I've had multiple ultrasounds during AF, and it wasn't bad at all. They were very nonchalant about it. 

    @pom9207 Welcome! Though, as others have said, I am sorry you find yourself here.

    @nitnat007 Sorry you're sick, but glad it's not when you're gearing up for ER etc. 

    @keikilove Glad you're getting into the RI! FX for your IUI to yield the best results! As for the dailies, I have stopped participating. It's just too much for me, and causes more anxiety for me. I still lurk TWW to see who might be close to a BFP. 

    @emeraldduchess I'm glad you haven't had symptoms with letrozole yet! I'm not having trouble with it either, which has been nice. 

    @mvt2003 I second what others have said about wanting to see pictures of your contest submission! How fun!

    @misshelen86 I have started sharing with more people, and haven't regretted it. I'm not being super-public, but I'm honest when people ask. I also attended a faith-based infertility conference, and some pictures were posted online, so that "outed" me a little bit, which I was okay with. As others have said, I have been surprised who is or has been going through similar things. 

    @feather_heather Yay for having ER scheduled!! FX for you!
