Sorry for the long delay in my long update of fertility crap! Well, as was expected, I didn't get to go through with the IVF. I only developed 1 mature follicle, and they won't do an egg retrieval for just one possible egg (with good reason). I think that they were almost too cautious with me in the beginning, fearing I would overstimulate, but ended up with the opposite result of not enough eggs. BUT, we did get to convert to an IUI!! It's better than nothing! I am hopeful and optimistic that this could be the ONE! I will find out this coming Saturday, November 28th if I'm preggo or not! If not, we will do it all over again (with a different protocol) starting sometime in January or February.

In the meantime, I thought this was funny, my Doctor wrote me a prescription for progesterone suppositories that I must take until I find out if I'm pregnant or not (if I am, I have to continue them for 8 weeks!). That's not the funny part though. The funny thing is that she told me that I needed to take 2 per vagina three times a day!! Chris and I looked at each other and tried to contain our immature laughter. How many vaginas do I have, we wondered?! No wonder I have to go through fertility treatments!! Oh, that Dr. jargon, so silly.


  1. This is the funniest thing I've heard so far in the IF stories. The suppositories are a royal pain but a necessary evil.

    Wishing you luck.

  2. Now, that is FUNNY! I am thinking of you and just said a little prayer for you. I wish you all the luck in the world! ((((HUGS))))
