I've been a bt down lately, and have been having a BH break. However, finally have some news that gives a glimmer of hope again.
Just before Xmas, was scanned on Day 8 of a natural cycle, and no follicle was seen. This was the last day before FS went on holiday. I was pretty depressed on Xmas day and in the lead up to my 40th birthday. Then on New Years Eve I had some spotting and next day my temp went up, so maybe I did ovulate in the end. However I got AF 1 week later so if I did ovulate the luteal phase was too short. At least AF was normal this time, not like the previous anovulatory cycle where it was very light.
I have now had a 3 cycle break since the last IVF. This cycle I started taking Clomid. This is because the new FS wants to try gentle stims to try to "gently tease" the old eggs out. Was scanned last Monday (Day 10) and no follicles, lining 4mm. Day 1 bloods this time were FSH=15, LH=3 and E2=70. FS asked me to take another lot of Clomid and see him on Friday (Day 14). On Friday, there were two follicles, one on each ovary! They were 14mm and 11mm, and lining was 6mm. Another scan yesterday showed both follicles had grown to 18mm (smaller one caught up) and lining was 10mm.
We won't be able to do egg pick up this time - FS was just back from holiday and nothing was organised - I think the follicles got him by surprise as well. FS estimates I will ovulate today or tomorrow. So at the moment we are DTD twice a day and hoping we'll get lucky.
Have an appointment with the famous Wazza on Feb 14 for another opinion. I am a bit nervous and am expecting him to say I have a 1% chance and have him go on about donor eggs. DH and I already feel like $hit as it is. Will see what the Wazza recommends, and maybe do a crazy protocol with him at some stage. At the moment I feel inclined to stay with the current FS for at least another cycle to see if his idea with the gentle stims gets any eggs.
Sorry about the lack of personals - but wish everybody all the best. DH wants me to stick away from BH to obsess less. However I will lurk occasionally to check on everyone and post if I get any good news.
