laparoscopy is scheduled

I met with my RE on Tuesday, and his recommendation was to do a laparoscopy and make sure everything is good to go before we start the process of IVF.    So the surgery is scheduled for September 29th and I'm already freaking out.  Luckily they got me scheduled for a Thursday so I should only need to take 2 days off of work.   I actually am really hoping they find something that will explain our lack of success.  If he is able to find something and remove it, we are going to give IUI a few more tries.  I'll take IUI over IVF any day.

Add another BFN to the pile

Our last shot at IUI was a negative.  I really thought this was going to be it so I'm pretty crushed.  As of right now it looks like the plan is to start saving money so we can attempt IVF hopefully in January.  Until then I'll just go back to charting and hope something crazy happens.

My ovary is all gigantic

I went to my RE this afternoon after having some horrible cramping this morning.  After doing an ultrasound he told me that because I had so many follicles this cycle, my ovary is enlarged.  He said the follicles that were not mature at trigger have continued to grow.  Since there are a lot of them they just sort of ran out of room.  He said it is nothing to worry about, but I have to take it easy.  No bouncing around for me.    If I don't get pregnant it should calm down in the next week.  If I do happen to get pregnant, then it is something he will have to monitor, because it can get bigger.

Triggering tonight!

After 2 very long days where I was convinced we were cancelling, I am triggering tonight.  RE said I have 1 definitely mature, 2 that will catch up, and 8 that he is confident will not catch up.  IUIs are scheduled for tomorrow afternoon and Friday morning.   I am beyond excited that not only am I triggering, but I don't have to come in on the weekend for an IUI.  WooO!!!!
