Another update

Sigh. That about covers it.

This cycle I took an extra day of Clomid and Estrace everyday twice a day since day 3. Because of the holiday, I went in for my sono to check my follicles on day 14. That was Monday. Well, for the first time, I had 4 follicles! Exciting, but...they weren't mature enough. The nurse told me to come back the next day so we could check again. Tuesday...still not mature. Come back tomorrow for the last chance. So, this morning, I went in and they still weren't big enough. In addition, I have a ridiculously thin lining. Let's call it dismal even. Cycle cancelled. Again. Out of 5 cycles, I've only made it to insemination twice. Two have been cancelled before it even started because of cysts and now this. I have to say, this one hurts a bit more.

So, we will be going to see a reproductive endocrinologist(RE). Not to be confused of course with my plain ole regular endocrinologist. He supposedly has many more drug options and he is brutally honest. If there is no way for us to have another kid without doing IVF, he will tell us right off the bat. Here's hoping I just need to a different cocktail of drugs to shake things up. And inexpensive ones too...fingers crossed!

John and I were talking about how Caroline is even more of a miracle baby than we thought.
