Ultrasound check this morning

I was panicking all weekend that I would ovualte before going into my appt this morning, because I felt O pains starting Sat night, but apparently everything looked good. The nurse showed me and DH the screen during the ultrasound and explained what we were seeing.
She said the left ovary was doing all the work this month and I had 3 good sized eggs.
two at 23mm and one at 19mm. She also showed us an area with 3 lines (tri-something) that she said was really good to see. She explained it but I asked so many questions and I was in stirrups so I didn't write it down. (Anyone know what this is?)
She said the lining was at 13mm.
I took an OPK as soon as I got home and got a smiley face so I called her and she told me to go ahead and do the trigger shot(Ovidrel)right then instead of waiting until night time.
DH and I go in tomorrow at 7:15am for our first IUI.
Since we have "undiagnosed" infertility I am terrified this won't work but at the same time I am so excited! There is a chance that this will work and it kind of blows my mind to think about it.
I will post my experience after the IUI tomorrowfor those of you that have never had it done or are just curious.


Wish us luck please! :)

Woo hoo!!  Just saw this...I hope the IUI went amazingly this morning and that your egg is on it's way to being fertilized (or already is)!!  Update us on how it all went when you get a chance.  Mine will probably be in two weeks or less so I'm curious to see how it went for you!  Sending all good vibes your way!

Sorry I just saw your post and I'm so excited for you!!!  From what the doctor said about your left ovary I'd say things are looking really good!  I'm wishing and praying for you that this will do the trick!  My fingers are crossed for you for the next two week wait!

Thank you ladies! I deeply appreciate all of the support. Makes me smile to know I have "friends" that understand the stress and excitement of everything we go through.


Her is my recap: Some good and unfortunately quite a bit of bad...

Good: My cervix was in perfect condition, follicles the right size. I gave myself the trigger shot on Monday afternoon and went back in Tues with DH. The actual process took 5 minutes top.

Bad: They do an SA(modified) while they wash the sperm in preparation for the insemination and DH's results had dropped. They were on the low end before but they were not even in the millions at this appt (as measured by the 1 drop sample they do onsite).
Originally the plan was to do 3 cycles of IUI and then discuss IVF. After these results the Dr wants us to come in in 4 weeks and if I'm pregnant then great but if not he said it's time to talk about IVF. :(
The other bad thing which I was no prepared for was that around 4am (about 16hrs after the IUI) I woke up in excruciating pain. Like, writhing around, crying, clutching my side kind of pain. The pain was around where I think my left ovary is and started radiating to my back area as well. I broke down and took Tylenol even though I wasn't sure if I was allowed to but I couldn't take it anymore. I also had a slight fever.
By about noon the pain subsided and I was able to walk around somewhat normally. I even managed to paint a room (in that house of horrors I mentioned in a previous post).
I went to sleep last night without taking anything and actually got good sleep until about 6am. Around 8am the pain was starting to come back and I took 1 Tylenol. By 10am it was excruciating again. I called the nurse and explained it to her and she said it could be that the follicles, after O, filled up with blood or something else I can't remember. SHe put me on hold and went to talk to the Dr and they want me to come in at 1pm.
I'm terrified now. This is a dr that is booked months in advance and he wants me to come in within hours. I usually have a very high threshold for pain so this is pretty bad for me to complain.


I will update later today with my results.
Wish me luck :(

Thanks, Cat ;)
The appointment was a giant relief. I got their early and when the nurse came out to get another patient and saw me she immediately took me back. She said I was not looking good at all. I was sweating and pale and crouched over in a chair.
The dr did an internal vaginal and rectal (ugh) exam. This sounds weird but while he was all up in my business it actually gave me some relief. I think the pressure against the painful area reduced the pain temporarily. I mentioned it to him and he said it was also that he was displacing the fluid that comes out of the follicle after ovualtion which is what he believes is what was hurting me. The clomid hyper stimulates and since I already O on my own it was that much more acute. I usually get O pains but intermittently, this was like that but multiplied by 50!
He said to look at it as a good sign that I ovualted and then gave me a prescription for Codeine which is safe to take. He also said no sex or physical activity for the next 2-4 days, just in case. I am supposed to call if the pain continues through the weekend.
I took my first dose and right now I feel pretty good. I have to say that although this sucks I am happy to feel pain for the entire 2ww if it means a bfp in the end.
Thank you, ladies! :)

Oh goodness... I'm so glad you are ok and the Dr. gave you something for the pain.  I had twinge-y O cramps, painful and uncomfortable enough that they interrupted my sleep.  But yours sounded so painful, poor thing!!  But hopefully this means you will get your BFP this month!!! :)
