First off I want to thank everyone who has continued to stop by my page for the last month, despite me not posting anything new since December 11th. The last month has been incredibly busy, with the holidays and then our fantastic vacation that we went on! Now school has started up so I will still be incredibly busy. My goal and new years resolution is to post once a week, lets see how it goes. Once I have my school schedule written down I will find a time once a week where I can post something.
With all of that being said I have a little bit to update on. For the last two months we have not done anything fertility wise. We decided we needed to take a break and with everything that was coming up there wasn’t a better time. Next month we will be back in the game and I believe stronger than before. This month we are changing the game a little bit. Unlike last month we will be doing an IUI. Our new insurance now covers six cycles, so we decided to take advantage of it, I mean who wouldn’t? We are also changing the medication protocol a little bit as well. Instead of doing two weeks of Lupron shots every morning before the stimulating shots my doctor is completely taking me off them. We also wont be doing the AWFUL Menopur shots this cycle either, which I am sooo happy about. I will be staying on the Follistim, but we will be doubling the dose from 75iu to 150iu. My doctor decided to take an approach this cycle that works with my body.
When the next cycle will start is completely up in the air right now. We have to wait for my period to show up before we can completely have a plan. Right now we are planning on my period showing up sometime next week. If that shows up next week I will be starting birth control and baby aspirin for a week and then coming off of it to start another period (joy). If everything goes like we hope then I will start stimulating shots on the 13th (right before Valentines day), with a possible trigger shot the 21/22 and then the IUI on 23/24.
So that is where we stand now, however everything could change in the next week.
I will have a post up in the next week or so about our vacation along with some pictures. If you are a Walking Dead fan or just curious what it would be like to be on a cruise based around the show make sure you check back next week!
