So I haven’t talked too much about this cycle, because I really don’t want to think about it. I got all of my drugs from the RE weeks ago. I never asked any questions about the cycle.
Well it runs out, I’m basically doing ivf. It’s a mini stim cycle. They have me stimming to produce my own estrogen naturally. After my first appointment, I asked the nurse… How does this all work? Answer, it’s ivf minus the retrieval. Well then I started getting a great response to the meds… And then I was saddened by the waste of my fresh eggs. And then… I took matters into my own hands and went rogue!
I upped my Follistim. I realized that I could create an at home IUI in addition to the FET. I knew they didn’t care how many follicles I developed, but maybe I did. I was being monitored, I knew only the larger follicles mattered. I knew I previously took 375 of Follistim and was now on 100. So I knew I wouldn’t overstimulate. I upped it to 150. Thinking well hell maybe I can get an extra egg out of this!
At the next appointment, the nurse told me… You’ve been through this soapy times, I bet you could read your own charts. I’m like yup! Later that day the office called and told me to up the meds… Which I had already done… So I upped it more. 175!
At the next appointment one of the doctors told me… You are responding wonderfully to this ministim! I’m like thanks!!! And I upped it even more! So far I have 4 major follicles developing!
Tonight I triggered. I called all of my friends that did IUI’s to find out how long after that they did the insemination. Long story short, hubs and I are going to do it like rabbits for the next few days.., TMI?? Probably.
Fact, I know this wont work, but should it not work, I’ll kick myself for not trying everything!
The transfer is at 1:30 on Monday!!
Fact, should we end up pregnant… We would potentially (very very very not likely) not know genetically whose kids they are.., or twins one ours one someone else’s. I’m not serious, because this is not going to work… But it’s funny none the less!
These are the days of our lives.
