So far, I have been wanded by three females and two males. And by far the more comfortable experience was with the males. A new doctor at the clinic performed my ultrasound on Friday and as soon as he started, I noted that the men were much better than the women. The nurse who was there said that many people have said that. I'm curious - is it just at my clinic or have any of you notice this as well?
On other topics, I gave myself the trigger shot on Saturday night at 11:30pm and the IUI is on Monday at 11:30 am. It was such a relief to give myself that last shot. 3 shots a day was starting to get old. With the ganrel.ix, I was told to give it at the exact same time or a little earlier each day but never more than 24 hours apart. I decided to give it to myself 10 - 15 minutes earlier each day to be sure I didn't miss it. I didn't know I would have to give it to myself 6 times - which, if you have to start earlier and earlier each morning, pretty soon you have to set the alarm clock to make sure you (Normally, I don't use an alarm clock to wake up). I didn't want to ovulate my 5 follicles too soon. I took the last one at six am on Saturday.
Still hopeful about the IUI but mostly hopeful about the 5 even sized follicles. I was told that a lead follicle is a sign of "advanced maternal age" and so expected to always have one dominating the show. I guess we started early enough in the cycle with the right amount of meds. I also think it was good to take a cycle or two off (even though I only did that because of the cyst) so my body could have a break from the medications. If this cycle doesn't work, I may take another month off before I start medicated cycle again.
Off to bed so I can be ready for tomorrow.
