We're ON!!!!!!!!!

Just got back from the RE's. We had 7-8 follies on one side and 14-15 on the other!!!

My lining was 8.4 (8 is what the minimum)
Dominant follie: 20mm
Secondary: 19mm
Tertiary: 15.4mm

For an average of 18.2 - which is PERFECT! (according to my nurse anyway). They were all on one side (the side with 14-15); the other side all measured in the low teens.

I think it's pretty obvious that it's a DARN GOOD THING I fought for myself and made them boost the C!omid. There's no way we would be pushing on if I had stayed on 50mg. Go me!!

So, I shoot myself up at 1:30 today. And tomorrow I go in at 1:30. They will thaw our vial when I get there, so the IUI itself will take place at 2:30.

Unfortunately, my husband gets on a plane at 9 in the morning. He won't be there. I hate it, but we both decided that we weren't willing to let it stop us. This show must go on!

*UPDATED* I administered the shot precisely at 1:30pm CST. All by myself. I sent my husband to a ball game. I thought it would hurt, but I hardly felt anything at all. I don't feel any different, but I guess I shouldn't. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes - they are treasured!



  1. Woo hoo!! I'm so glad to hear of such nice big follicles!

    On with the show! I'll be thinking about you!

  2. Yay Alison! I'm so glad you pushed for the 100mgs of Clomid - obviously the right choice. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow!

  3. Alright!! That's great news. Keep us updated tomorrow.

  4. Yay! That is such great news:)

  5. Woo Hoo for huge follies! I am so excited for you! Can't wait to see your update after tomorrow's appointment!

  6. so exciting! so glad you pushed the doctor to let you go to 100mg! you responded so well! glad the shot was a piece of cake. good luck tomorrow! i'll be thinking about you and sending you lots and lots of positive thoughts!

  7. Yay! Yay! Yay!!! I'm so excited that your IUI is finally ON! Woot woot!!!
    Also, very glad that the trigger didn't hurt a bit ;) I'm hoping that you never have to become a pro at it!

    ((hugs)) and GL tomorrow! Call me if you need moral support. The IUI itself is no different than a pap smear. You might feel a little cramping afterwards from the washed seminal fluid but that's totally normal!

  8. Wow, you responded really well! Great news; good luck tomorrow!

  9. What great news! Keep us posted! :)

  10. That's fantastic news! What a great way to start the new year. I hope tomorrow goes perfectly and that you get your BFP soon!

  11. Such great news, Alison! So excited for you! Sorry that hubby won't be there tomorrow, but know that we'll all be with you in spirit, too! :-)

  12. That's great news! You are progressing very well! I hope things continue to go smoothly for you!
