So I did end up telling one of my friends at work last night about our timeline and everything. She is a very good friend and she gets so excited about the stuff I tell her like it is actually happening to her to. She is a great support system. Plus I figured if I told her then she would be the one keeping a secret and not me. And I would have someone else to drive crazy besides DH.
So just an update here, have a doctor's appointment in the morning. They are gonna do an u/s, b/w and I will pick up my meds and sign some papers. I am getting very excited. These 3 weeks on thyroid meds have taken forever.
im single, just turned 39 and on my tww with iui #4. did unmedicated on the first, 2 femara, then gonal f with the last. i was starting to think about giving up but.. finally got my doc to do a sperm count (apparently he feels that the banks provide a good product and you dont need to test.).. well guess what.. crap sperm. count was so so (6.6 million which is above the who limit but still crap for donor), and a crap motility to the point where if this was my partner's sperm they recommend icsi or a donor.. sigh. so now i still have no idea whether i have any fertility issues but im out around 8,000. the bank will give me 4 free vials.. i still havent approached the doc about wanting a few free rounds. im vaguely hopeful for this cycle as i had 5 2cm follicles and 5 15mm follicles the day before iui. the progesterone is making me batshit crazy too..
as far as ivf/iui etc goes. this is ALL out of pocket. my insurance through kaiser covers nothing and as far as i know there is no gov help available. luckily i can afford this (though im pissed about the waste .. a 150 test round 1 would have saved me all this time and trouble). im pissed about how much weight ive gained. emotional stress, time lost etc.
So at my appointment today, they took blood to check tsh. They did u/s and said lining was 5.1 with 12 on one side and 15 on the other. I start 225 Follistim on Friday. So I am really excited.
On the downside, for the study group they are doing, they had to do the balloon and saline in the uterus which causes ridiculous cramping. They actually had to do it twice and oddly enough I started crying which I think made the dr. feel really bad but I couldn't help it. I guess they want to test the fluids in your uterus from PCOS and see what it consists of. From now on, I guess they will just need extra blood and some follicular fluid, neither of which should be too painful.
