Ladydee - That's is amazing news hun, just what I was hoping to hear from you today, like you say first hurdle done with now, take each step slowly hun and hopefully this is the one for you, I really think you are going to get to snuggle this baby at the end of the next 8 months you definitely deserve it. to head straight to IVF and not mess with IUI as its of no advantage.
As for me and the time I had '4 follicles' my fs actually suggested that maybe the clinic also got it wrong and mistook my tubal cysts for follicles but I am doubting that fact as they seemed to take more time with the scans and had two nurses talking about what they were seeing on the screen (I think I am loosing faith in my fs to be honest). I think the trigger injection definitely will make you ovulate (from the research I have done online) if you actually have a follicle there in the first place (really think I may have had a cyst). As for blood tests, I requested he do some the cycle before last as he doesn't seem concerned with doing any or looking at oestrogen levels and that cycle was when I ovulated. However he didn't do any again this month which when I look back is ridiculous given my history . I discussed with DH last night about returning to the clinic but we don't really know how to do that without letting the fs know we have lost faith in him so think a clear break with new fs and clinic might be the better option (fresh start).
Twinkley - Thanks hun, your description of a roller coaster has just hit the nail on the head, sick of the ride just need things to calm down a little. Sounds like you are happy with your plans for IVF which is great, nice to have a plan, good luck with the weight loss. Can I ask how you went about changing your fs, I am having such feelings of guilt just thinking about moving (not the way I should be thinking I know, but feel I have invested so much with current fs). Have you asked for copies of results etc from old fs or does your new fs requests those?
AFM - I went for the requested BT today for progesterone to see if I ovulated late but definitely know that is not the case as my body has started to misbehave again today and the cm has returned as if it is trying to kick start itself again, maybe I just ignored this symptom earlier and wanted to believe I had ovulated! Will speak to fs tomorrow for results and set a plan of action in place for 1 last cycle which I will again request blood tests for, also going to ask if I need to go on the pill before starting to reset hormones (although seems like more wasted time). I sent an e-mail to another clinic today though asking about an initial free consultation to get a feel for them and how they work, can get all necessary paperwork etc done this month while will complete this last cycle a fresh start might be what we need.
