She’s Baaaa-aaaack… And Early!

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012.  CD1.

Guess who just stopped by our new house?

…That aunt we all love to hate.

Yes, her.

She’s here.  EARLY.

Very early, actually!  Until she showed this afternoon, today was CD28… Which means I ovulated on CD15 (probably) and had an almost completely average-length cycle for a normal human!  And without medication, too!

Uhh… WHAT?!

That NEVER happens!!

But okay, I’ll just go with it.

I feel like death, but the husband is out getting me a pizza and we are almost completely moved into our new house.  Things are coming together nicely, if slowly, and it’s feeling more and more like home every day.

Having the pets here and our belongings properly covered with animal hair helps on that front.  Heh.

So, with the arrival of Aunt Flo, I called Dr. K’s office and left them a message letting them know that I was ready to get this cycle started, and that they could call me to discuss this month’s medication protocol as soon as they could.

This is what I figure will happen:

  • Femara.  Again.  Probably double the dosage.
  • Menopur.  Again.  Possibly a tweaked or slightly increased dosage.
  • Ovidrel trigger.  Again.  I assume this will be the same as always.

I know Dr. K expressed some concern about increasing the injectables too much in the past, saying something like “That’s how you end up with triplets!”… Gah!

I trust his judgment, however, and will go with whatever he suggests.  I may request more blood work than in the last cycle, though… I had no baseline blood work last cycle, and no mid-cycle blood work, and no progesterone check, which is a kind of blind faith in the human body to which I’m not accustomed.

I know I said it before and wimped out, but I may ask for a little extra monitoring this go-’round.  We shall see.

I hope you are all doing well out there, and that the impending Full Moon is treating you better than it’s treating me! Perhaps my cycle starting on the Full Moon will bring some lunar fertility this way… Let’s hope, right?

Thanks, as always, for visiting!

    Yay, that’s great! I mean, great you had a normal cycle and are heading into your next one. I don’t think you’ll need to increase anything. You definitely don’t want more follicles, you just have to catch the right one.
    Good that you’re going to push for more monitoring this time. Please ask them to check for LH *each time* in addition to Estrogen & Progesterone (and FSH Day 3…). None of my RE’s checked my LH levels until IVF #3 and only then did we learn I didn’t have enough. That was after NUMEROUS medicated IUI cycles as well. Yes, it costs more, but YES, it is worth knowing.

      Thanks for that! I will take that list to the doc tomorrow!! I’m trying to trust in the plan, but I really want to cover the bases as well. I hope you’re feeling well these days… I’m praying for you daily. 🙂

    That sounds awesome! You go and show that ugly PCOS that you can do better!!!
    And my very first portpartum cycle was 15 days, it seems. That’s if what I am experiencing right now is, in fact, AF :/

      Haha, you just take care of those twin princesses and leave my uterus out of it! 😉 But yes, it will be fun to test out the “fertility mojo” of this particular residence!

      LOL. As long as you and Mills are aware that Wong Anne White is not acceptable, then we can talk. 😉
