Ovary scan day! And my one follicle grew to a 28! 😬 whoops!
The doctors office called around 11am. She said that my follicle COULD be too mature, but it mighhhht be totally fine and that was up to me…I said we would take the chance. So she said to do the trigger shot right then, and that my insemination would be the very next day at 1pm.
Just hearing that made things sooooo real! It meant I could be carrying our child in the next week! I have to admit that it was a little scary because prior to this it was all just an idea and a hope that it would happen. And now it was a reality that could happen NOW!
So on cycle day 16, I went in for my IUI and learned that my long torso meant that my cervix was further back and that i needed a longer speculum to be inseminated 😂🤷🏻♀️ sorry if that’s TMI, but it’s apparently a real thing and other women should know they aren’t alone.
The doctor said that it was a perfect insemination and again repeated that this follicle very well could be too mature, but that we would know for sure in 2 weeks! She scheduled an appointment for one week later to test my progesterone levels to determine whether or not I would do progesterone inserts.
Fingers crossed 🤞🏻 and now we start my body’s first two week wait.
Update: My progesterone was not as high as the doctor would have liked. And she started me on progesterone inserts… which are nottttt fun at all!!
