of course, we realized this on our way to the rockville clinic. i started to freak out that we were going to have to cancel this cycle, because at the soonest we would be able to do the IUI on tuesday and with no little soldiers on ice there would be no reason to trigger at all. we decided to just go to the appointment, see where we were at with my follies and hormone levels, and figure out a solution, even if that involved canceling the cycle.
i had a different tech today and i really liked her. she told me not to worry about the follicle shrinking yesterday and that everything looked to still be right on track. my lining went up to 8.1, my 17mm follie on my left grew to 18.6, the 15 on my right is up to a 17.2, the 15 on my left stayed about the same and my estrogen jumped back up to 598.
after the scan, we sat down with one of the nurses to go over everything. she said that, considering the size of my follies, she expected me to be able to trigger today and that we should be doing the IUI on tuesday. we asked about the freezing, whether it would be worth it to reschedule his flight for tomorrow so that he could still do the deposit tomorrow. she explained that motility and count tends to go down when you freeze and that we could do it, but fresh would be better.
B and i talked after i got the call that we have the go ahead to trigger and came to the conclusion that with that info and the cost of $250 to freeze it, as well as the cost of changing his flight, it would be more cost effective and we would have a better chance of this all working if we just changed his flight to tuesday (having him work from home) so that he would be here for the big event. so...i get 2 extra days with B and i get to have him here for the IUI! YAY!!!
oh, and by the way, happy easter!
