We found out two days later it had been a chemical via lab work from the docs office. The cysts are supposed to be rare (unless you have PCOS, which I do, so that's why I even entertained the thought. At this point, I would assume you just ovulated late?

Thats what I was thinking also. It just is hard to wait when you want to be pregnant so bad.! Longer cycles mean less chances to get pregnant. Its just frustrating. I also feel like everyone I know that is trying has gotten pregnant in the last few months.

Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More February

The pain in my abdomen is getting much worse, I am ready to get this surgery done even if it freaks me out a bit.

I'm sorry you are in so much pain I'm hopeful for you that you will feel much better after the surgery.

So I have to go back in for monitoring tomorrow. I'm taking my 3rd Bravelle injection tonight. I'm so worried that I am going to to go in again tomorrow and have the follies still not be developed. I just don't know what to do if that is the case. Take more injections and come back again for more monitoring? I will never try to go the oral med route again, next time we will just go straight to injectibles.

Question on the Bravelle, it contains 1-2% LH, so I'm wondering if anyone knows if it can make OPKs turn darker? I'm not getting positives but the last few days I've gotten darker OPKs and I wonder if that is why.

Anyway any positive thoughts or vibes you can send our way that we will see 3 nicely developed follies tomorrow and that I can trigger tomorrow night would be wonderful.

FWIW...I am using the Follistem for Follicle growth and started with the 5 days of inital injections went in CD8 for US did more injections x2 days then US then more injections x2 days and US then another injection and US in 2 days....Then finally they were big enough and triggered and here I am in the TWW at 3dpo!! Which by the way I HATE!! Guessing I'll test Friday March 1! I don't like to test out my HCG trigger I just wait 14 days and test!!

Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More February

K so I have 2 follies big enough to trigger. We have decided to do timed bding instead of iui. I was good with it but now I'm second guessing wondering if we should do the iui because of the clomids affect on cm. Dh has no sperm issues so in that way the iui seems like a waste of money but noe I don't know. I hate this. All these decisions just stress me out. Will using preseed take the place of the cm?

I would totally use Preseed! Good luck!

This this! And take 2 teaspoons every 4 hours for three days of guaneffesin (plain robitussin) to thin out your cm. my doc recommended it.

Yup, guaifenesin is an expectorant...Robitussin, some DayQuils, and Mucinex have it as the primary component. You might see if your local drug store has a store brand. For whatever reason, my local chain has their own brand of Mucinex really cheap. I only did IUI/IVF, so I never worried about cm, but if I did, I'd go ahead & do the Preseed & guaifenasin.
