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.

Just to add more confusion af has turned up this morning which is exactly when she would have been due if I had ovulated - so confused. Af never ever turns up by herself if I haven't ovulated I always have to turn to provera to get my cycle started again. Could it be that I actually had a very poor ovulation with a progesterone level of 7??

@Heyside- You have probably already read this and many articles about Progesterone levels by now if you're anything like me but....what do you think about the last paragraph of this article?
Does this mean you could've O'd early with a level of 7?......or am I reading it wrong??

That's definitely something to think about Ladydee, I did did wonder myself this morning if I could have ovulated earlier as my fs wouldn't have know that looking at scans as it would still look like a follie. Something to ask my fs when I speak to him, thanks for the info it was an interesting read. If it's the case that I ovulated as planned though then obviously not enough for implantation, really feeling I need a change of action in my cycle . I can honestly see me heading down the IVF route in the future but would like to have 1 cycle we have full faith in first.

Ladydee - You are probably right about the lining issue being another 'PCOS thing', my acne hasn't been as bad this time ttc since being on the met but my body seems to have fallen to pieces in lots of other ways due to the PCOS, suppose that's just an age thing. Think I will ask about progesterone support again this cycle. Hope you are going well hun and feeling some really good symptoms this cycle, hope the morning sickness hasn't set in yet.
AFM - Have started my injections again this cycle with the increased dose of 100, will now have a definite think about where we want to take things from here wether it be a new fertility specialist or IVF. If we decide to go down the IVF route the specialist I am with at the moment is connected to an affordable IVF clinic which carries out procedure at a much cheaper rate, if we go down that route then we just see the specialist who is available on the day we go in. That option might save us lots of money but we have to make sure we are comfortable with that decision, other than that we will sign up with a different specialist - decisions decisions.

@Ladydee congrats on the bloods being good news Each hurdle passed is a step closer! I cant remember - did you do IUI or IVF?
@Twinkley good luck with starting IVF! o you mind me asking what your BMI is that FS suggested you lose weight? I have a high BMI I asked my FS about loosing weight and he said he thought we'd be better off doing treatment now and losing the weight after having a kid.
@Heyside - no BT's?! WTF? You're doing stimulated IUI yes? Seriousy, how can they really know whats going on without bloods? I dont know I'd be feeling confident in the clinic either Although I have heard some clinics get you to do LOTS of bloods just to get mor e money from medicare. My clinic seems to be a happy medium.
AFM - CD9 BT showed low oestrogen! The clinic called and left a message saying to go up from 5 gonalF to 75. I'm amazed how much that news impacted on me. I was supposed to go out to dinner with work colleagues and instead fell apart and cried until my eyes were so puffy I couldnt go out! I rang the clinic back but didnt get to speak to anyone. Just so disappointed after responding so beautifully to the hormones the first time round it had me very positive and hopeful. Then I started wondering... will I even produce a folly this cycle? Trying not to freak out. CD12 BT tomorrow. Had been anticipating IUI on Wednesday but given they didnt even book me in for US tomorrow I expect it will be delayed?
Oh and I forgot to mention i have that Prothrombin gene that causes blood clotting. The FS said I would be on meds once pregnant but didnt need to be on anything before a positive preg test. I hope that is right.
Thanks for your help girls - on Friday I said to my hubby that I would have to get on bub hub to talk to people who would actually understand (he was taking the approach that I was catastrophising, rather than just normally worried/stressed).

i have been watching watching from afar and kidding myself into believing that I don not need to post because I am doing well, but furbaby mum as I read your post over my breakfast I felt like I was reading my own story!
I am on my first OI and IUI and on Friday was increased from 50 to 75 units too. Apparently my oestrogen was only 50 when it needs to be between 400-600! I am trying to stay positive, have another BT this morning. I hope you had better luck with the increased dose.
To all of the other beautiful ladies out there who post on this forum- have a lovely day and good luck in your journey. I know it sound weird (and a bit freaky?) but you have all been a pilar of strength for me over the past couple of weeks as I have read from the comfort of my dressing gown and porridge bowl!!

Furbabymum - I am doing FSH injections with timed bd but yes I definitely need to make sure I get more observation with BT. I wouldn't worry too much hun about the increase in dose, it doesn't mean it isn't going to happen just that this cycle needs a little boost its not over yet hope you have seen an improvement in results since your last post. Just to let you know my first ever cycle on injections I ovulated on with a 75 dose and next cycle nothing was happening so my dose was upped to 100 and that's when I conceived DD so don't lose faith.
S234 - Hope you have seen some good results too hun since your dose has been increased you also might just need that extra boost. Great that you feel you are getting support from reading our stories hun, we will always be here to answering questions if we can do, I love this thread it keeps me sane when I can't talk to anyone else.
AFM - CD7 for me, have done 5 injections of increased dose so far. waiting to hear from FS today to book in for scan and request blood tests this cycle, I don't think he will have an issue with that if that's what I want. Also need to discuss my confusion over last cycle as haven't really had chance to yet.
