Hello and Welcome!

Hello and Welcome! We are just another couple struggling with infertility but having fun and trying to enjoy the journey.

Sunday I went for an ultrasound at Generations in Madison. I love Madison, such a great city with great energy (and a Whole Foods!). Our RE, we like to call him Glenn, appeared with his usual calm demeanor as he read off the following:

Follies: 27 (??), 10, 9 and 12
Lining: 7.9
He followed this reading by saying why don't you get dressed and we'll discuss. Uh oh..that's never a good sign.

Positives: my lining was 7.9 which is fantastic and has increased from IUI#3 (6.2). The Tamoxifen seemed to work it's magic.
Negatives: the follicle measuring at 27 (which is double what you would expect) means a follicle (egg) was leftover from the last cycle.  So all in all we've been benched for 2-3 cycles while this wanky follicle does it's thing and matures and passes.

Bummer.  What a letdown.  Glenn said this happens a lot with injectibles (not what I'm on) but not usually with the Letrozol which is what I'm on.  So we'll wait and see and hope it passes on it's own, then discuss our options.  But he definitely wants me to be monitored more than I have been (meaning a baseline ultrasound on CD3, then possibly 2 more before the IUI). Which is all good, just more $ under the belt.

Life is a journey.
Cheers to a good week!
