I noticed a little bit of spotting yesterday morning, and by mid-afternoon, AF had arrived (conveniently, right in the middle of a deposition, lovely). I have not been feeling great today or yesterday, between a milder-than-usual-but-still-unpleasant migraine yesterday, plus heavier-than-usual flow and cramps--I swear, it's like AF is angry at me for delaying her arrival with medications--but I am relieved that AF has arrived and was not further delayed.
Nurse Favorite called this afternoon with the plan for this cycle (BTW, she is still pregnant, 37+ weeks now, and plans to work until she goes into labor, she says). Here it is:
**Clomid 50 mg each evening CD 3 through CD 7
**Gonal-F injections in the following doses:
--150 units on CD 3
--112 units on CD 4
--112 units on CD 6
-- 75 units on CD 8
-- 75 units on CD 10
(Gonal-F is basically the same medication as Follistim, but I am using Gonal-F instead because of the increase in doses)
**hCG trigger when instructed (I use Ovidrel, as I had a nasty local reaction to Pregnyl the one time I used it)
**Progesterone gel vaginally each evening for two weeks following IUI or timed intercourse
**Checking OPKs daily before 11:00 a.m. each day beginning on CD 8
**Mid-cycle u/s to check follicles on CD 11
So I start my medications tomorrow night! This is only the second time I have successfully gotten it together to do two treatment cycles in a row, and it seems really quick. . . . .here we go.
