I got a call from my RE's nurse late yesterday afternoon and am set up for my medications and my mid-cycle follicle check u/s. My meds will be the same as last cycle except that the RE has changed my hCG injection from Pregnyl to Ovidrel due to the nasty welt I developed after the Pregnyl shot. I will be taking Clomid 100 mg CD 3 through CD 7 (starting tonight!), checking OPKs every morning between 10 and 11 starting on CD 11, and triggering when instructed to do so. Once our IUI is complete--and, once again, there is a potential issue about the date for that--I will be using the progesterone gel again (yuck!).
About possible IUI dates. . . . based on last cycle, I ovulated on CD 16. My normal ovulation day without meds would usually be between CD 13 and CD 15. So I'm thinking that my IUI could potentially be any day during the week of May 18. Any one of those days would work fine for me EXCEPT May 22 (CD 17). On that day, I have to drive six hours round trip to attend a deposition in a small town. Because we are going to trial in the case in mid-June, the deposition cannot be rescheduled. And there's not a snowball's chance in hell of getting the partner to cover it, given that it involves sacrificing an entire day; he just has too many other things going on.
I will be positive and keep my fingers crossed that my IUI falls on any other day except CD 17. But you will recall how that worked out for me last cycle. Well, my luck is bound to change for the better eventually, right?
I have my follicle check u/s on May 18 (CD 13), so I will know more then about when the IUI might be.
Here we go. Hope this works.
