The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

OOOhh My follie is about to burst!!!

So ,I have one follie on the right side that is 17mm. Nice. It is just about ripe!!

I expected to get a positive OPK today just based on the bloat and the watery Cm.. sorry tmi.. but, I didn't and the bloodwork didn't show a surge either. So maybe tomorrow?

The nurse did say I could schedule the IUI tomorrow, based on my symptoms, and ignore the LH surge bussiness. But, I don't trust my body and my symptoms so, I am waiting for the smiley face on the opk's.

My Mom thinks that the LH surge monitoring hasn't worked (as in, I haven't become pregnant, because, I totally get a postive opk and a postive surge in my blood.) for the past two months and that I should have scheduled the IUI for tomorrow. But, I ignored her. If my office would do back to back I would do that. They don't. So hopefully I surge tomorrow and have the IUI on Saturday.

Do you think I made the right choice?

I always felt so unsure about keeping track of when I ovulated so I let the clinic keep track and then I did a trigger shot so everything would be perfectly timed.

I have no advice cuz I gave up on stalking my chart after a while.

Anyways, I was reading your history with infertility and i'm hoping for hope for you.

LH surge tracking never worked for me. Trigger shot (HcG) was the way to go!
When I took clomid, my RE let my follicles get to 20mm+ before he triggered me, so for whatever that is worth?
Congrats on the big, beautiful follicle, though!! I hope this is your month, girlie!!
