...of my journey with injectable cycles. This will be my last one in the foreseeable future. Studies show not much benefit for women my age anyway. More success has been seen with natural cycles or, I think, even Femara. I really hope to catch the "bump" cycle following this one (assuming this one doesn't work!) with an IUI this time. If you remember, we missed our IUI on the last "bump" cycle due to our DC travel plans.
My temperatures have been gradually dropping the last couple mornings, so I'm assuming AF will arrive today or tomorrow. Fertility Friend indicates I'm at 13dpo, but in my opinion I could also be at 12dpo. I usually start my cycle on 13dpo. Once it starts, I will go in for my first monitoring appointment the following day, and the ride will begin!
In our Tuesday phone consult, which confirmed we will be using the same protocol as the last injectable cycle, I asked the doctor about embryo donation sites and will probably begin checking those out. S and I have had a couple of preliminary conversations about this, and we both seem open to it. I feel good about the way things are going lately with us. Trip to Oregon planned for the weekend of September 14th. More to share on that later.
