Today I am 31. I really thought that we'd have at least 1 child by now and getting ready to start trying for a second. I guess God's plans are different than mine. Another failed cycle. Another cycle of residual follicles that have turned to cysts. I really think that it was another annovulatory cycle. Which would make 3 out of 4 IUI's have leftovers. Which makes me think they haven't solved my annovlatory issues at all. I really wish I had some answers. But instead I have 32mm cysts in my ovaries and have to sit another cycle out, riding on birth control to spring clean my ovaries.
Honestly I think the only IUI we even had a good shot at was the one last August. But I had to leave for a business trip, and so we did the IUI only 9 hours post trigger. (Way too soon) I totally had all the signs of ovulation (which I never do) and my progesterone blood draw confirmed ovulation too. My new RE doesn't do progesterone blood draws since I'm already taking the booster Ovidrel shot.
Steve and I majorly discussing IVF. So I guess its time to start planning a fundraiser perhaps, or saving like crazy. A friend from babycenter told me about www.attainivf.com... so we'll definitely look into it. IVF scares me for several reasons. The main reason being the risk.
1. It costs over $7,000 per try.
2. It could FAIL.
3. Most IVF's only work 65% of the time.
4. It's pretty invasive
These are just my major concerns. I guess talking to the doctor would alleviate most of them. I don't know, now that we're seriously considering it I'm nervous. But if there is that wonderful bundle of joy at the end it would all be worth it!
