Yes I know the saying usually goes something like
"Lets Pull Out The Big Guns!"
which is what I said to my nurse this morning!
The convo went like this..
She said "I was so sad when I saw your name on
my list yesterday!" "What the hell is going on!?"
I said "I was going to ask you the same thing!"
"I have been here over a year,
I think it's time to pull out the big guns!"
her reply was
"Yes we could but do you have have the money
for the big guns?"
"Well no not right this very second" I replied
"How about we pull out the Medium Guns for now!!"
"Deal lets do it!"
We laughed for awhile and then the Dr. entered.
My scan was fine and I was cleared to start round 3 of Femara
But Dr. G didn't just leave after he cleared me, he continued
to talk about options and what to do next.
It was almost like he was saying straight to my face
You need to do more!
So about an hour after my appointment I called
my nurse and requested we throw the injectables in now!
why wait?! why do the same thing again if it didn't work the first
2 times?! Why not throw some Gonal F in there! :)
So that is the new plan!
Femara days 3-7 Gonal-F 7-?
Follicle scan on Sunday May 26th
Trigger hopefully Monday with a 24 hour IUI
on Tuesday.. I requested the 24 hour IUI
The last two were 36 hours and then I would sit in the
waiting room for 30 minutes then on the table pantless for 15 more
minutes...So to me it wasn't really 36 hours at all!
I expressed this concern to Dr. G and he had no problem
moving up to the 24 hour IUI
The only maybe tiny problem will be
the damn weekend! So Since Monday the 27th is Memorial Day
the Office is closed and will instead be seeing patients on Sunday..
Sunday is day 12 for me..so that works out perfectly
But...If I am over ready they will have me trigger that night
and continue with a 36 hour IUI...
If I am at say a 22 then I can trigger Monday and
have the 24 hour IUI Tuesday...
Have I lost you yet?!
Whew! It's like wham bam right into a new mix of things!
So my question to you girls is
How is Gonal-F?! what can I expect?
So here we go! Cycle 10!
Femara + Gonal-F + Ovidrel + IUI = A BABY (hopefully!)
