My IUI Journey #5 I Triggered

Another appointment for my Ovidrel trigger shot is today. Hopefully my follicles are high enough that I can trigger and do IUI. I feel great and wonderful so there isn’t a real reason why I can’t move forward, except if none of my follicles reach 18 mm. Thankfully my parents have the day off and decided to help out and take me to NYC.

7 am monitoring I checked in and I feel like my numbers are high. The champagne had to work last night I am sure! After having an ultrasound I had 4 follicles measured at 18+, 16+, 16+ and 15+. The doctor says 18 is the magic number and you only need one mature follicle to start trigger so I am good! My other follicles will probably reach the high numbers just in time for my IUI. Everything is working and I am super excited!!! The trigger shot was super easy and did not hurt! I hate needles no matter how small I still hate them. But this shot I didn’t feel a thing not even a pinch! So if you’re scared don’t be!!

I was on cloud 9 all day after it was over. The big day comes tomorrow IUI and then the process is over. I am almost done with my journey it went pretty fast but I did have some challenges. Can’t wait until tomorrow, it will get real!

My IUI Journey #4 Trigger Shot Fail

Well today was the day I was suppose to start my trigger shot Ovidrel after being on Clomid for 5 days. Unfortunately my follicles weren’t mature enough to start the process so I have to go back to the fertility specialist on Monday.

I was very prepared for the day, getting the ultrasound and moving forward with the shot which I hate needles. And now I am in the waiting stages again. I didn’t know that the follicles had to at least be at 18 mm for them to start you on a trigger shot to boost ovulation. Mine were only at a 13 so I am hoping that it grows by Monday. If not back to NYC I go until they reach a high number!!!

This journey seemed a bit easy but it definitely has had a lot of setbacks because of the unknown of it all. You can’t rush things to happen even though you want it dearly. With today’s delay, I decided that a glass of champagne was needed. After a month of no alcohol I decided that today was the right day for one.

No worries as I sip...Things will work out...At least in this moment everything feels amazing. Cheers!

My IUI Journey #3 Clomid Symptoms

I noticed the first day of taking Clomid it made me tired within 30 minutes. My vision was blurry and I did have mild cramps. I took the medication at 6:45 pm and by 8 pm I was sleep. I slept all night long.

When I woke up the next day, I felt my normal self. My mood was good, no side effects noticeable and no cramps. I was really nervous thinking about the side effects that Clomid might have like depression, mood swings, hot flashes etc... But so far it was working for me very well. I did decide that I would take the medication much later around bed time because 6:45 pm was way too early. I still wanted to enjoy my evenings and watch my crazy reality shows. The evening time is when I am able to whine down so I wasn't feeling losing that relaxing period. 
I am being positive about this process and have managed to warn everyone that if I act weird for the next 5 days it’s all on the Clomid. Hopefully I won’t be rude or crazy after it’s over.

Pet Haul at Chewy

When you get a new puppy it definitely brings back life into you after losing one. I’ve been ordering things off of for awhile now (since February). The breeder I used for Julez put me on to the website and I’ve been obsessed ever since. This is my third order and mostly everything I purchased I would recommend. I love their website because I can read reviews about other people’s purchases, detailed information about products as well as view customers real images. They also offer 1-2 free shipping orders over $49 so I always get my package literally the next day! And luckily my dogs enjoy the products or have use for them. If you’re looking for another go to pet shop outside of the basic Walmart, Petco or Petsmart and even Amazon. Check out you will definitely love!!
