About Me

My photo
God has blessed me tremendously with an amazing husband, Doug, and two gorgeous little boys, Gavin and Joey. It has always been a dream of mine to have a large family but God may have other plans. I had a series of 6 consecutive early miscarriages when trying for baby #2. We are currently trying for baby #3 after our 7th miscarriage. I am faithful that God's plan is perfect, even when I am not happy about it. I love comments and meeting new followers so please don't be shy!

Just a Quickie

I am just going to do a quick cycle update today but I have some posts in the works for when I don't have two kids frantically playing with new toys while managing sugar crashes.  Those posts is going to require me to have a complete train of thought without interruptions of "Guess what Joey drew on this time?!"  It seems I can talk about ovaries and follicles while remote control cars zoom around my feet and I can even tell you about my uterine lining while kids bicker over whose turn it is to play with the Leapfrog Pen Reader. 

I went to the RE on Sunday morning and had my cycle day 12 scan.  I have a great lining again of 9.6mm and 3 follicles that could potentially pop.  The lead was a ripe 26mm and there was also an 18 and a 15 but the RE was only giving the 15 a 50% chance of containing a mature egg.  I was a little worried that the 26 was too big since it would continue to grow 1-2 mm per day and it could take up to 3 days to ovulate.  Since I had the 18 waiting in the wings, I felt better.

I decided that after learning that using half of the trigger shot (5,000 units) only trimmed a day off of the false positive tests, that throwing away almost $40 worth of medications wasn't worth it.  I triggered ovulation with the full 10,000 units of hCG.  I did notice that this time the trigger medication came in a different box and instead of it reading "Human Chorionic Gonadotropin" it was a name brand of Pregnyl.   Of course now I am worried that it will not leave my system at the same rate as the other type but... we'll see. 

I am still planning on waiting until 12 dpo to test but there is one teeny issue. When I got home from my scan and getting the trigger I felt a sharp pain near my ovary.  Then, the next morning my temp went above my coverline so for the first time since having trigger shots, I think I ovulated the same day as the trigger.  It may have even been hours after the trigger.  Kind of ironic since I think the trigger shot couldn't have already done it's job so I think that my ovulation was natural and I just injected my body with $80.00 worth of hcg merely to drive myself insane with false positive tests.  I say all of that to say, 12 days past ovulation is also going to be 12 days past trigger.  I wish I could say that I am strong enough to wait an extra day or two to test until I can be sure that the trigger is gone, but... alas... I am an addict. 

In the next week or so I plan on writing two posts that couldn't be any less related.  The first is going to be addressing our faith in God and how it relates to children and their education.  In the second, I am going to share our story of getting Joey successfully potty trained in just 3 days despite him not showing any signs of readiness.  Oh, and I hope to post some positive pregnancy tests in about 2 weeks.  We'll see how that goes. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!
