How To Tell If Your Wife Is On Injectible Fertility Meds

1. She cries 3 times a day at school, for both happy and sad reasons
2. She bawls you out for accidentally running over the curb pulling out of Dunkin' Donuts in her car, letting you know you can never drive a small car and can only and ever driver a big, clunky truck
3. She swears and kicks at the lawnmower repeatedly
4. It's her birthday, her favorite time of the year, and she isn't interested at all

Can we say these hormones are having some effect on our little S? You betcha! The ultrasound today revealed that she has 3-4 follicles on one ovary and 1 on the other. Kind of disappointing, actually, so we're upping her dosage for the next 3 days. Should be a blast given the weekend's outbursts above. But as long as it works, I can tolerate any of it.

Do you hear that, baby? I love you, outbursts and all! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

i was pissed when i only wound up with one follicle big enough to become anything after lots o follistem injected into my belly and low and behold i have a beautiful baby girl to show for it. if i may make a suggestion, i would work on making the follicles that look promising big and healthy rather than trying to stimulate more. it only takes one! good luck to you guys!

I'm sorry the hormones are affecting your wife so strongly. Rough for both of you.

And don't get too discouraged about the results of the first u/s. It's your first injectibles cycle, and it can take a while to get the dosage right. Also, be sure to look at the E2 levels from the bloodwork. They tell you how many contender follies you have, which matters more than how many total follies you have (you probably know that. Sorry).

Actually, 5 total follies is good if you're going to get 4 or 5 contenders out of it. For an IUI, you don't want too many mature eggs released.

Hope the upped dosage does the trick.

Happy Birthday!! Good luck w/ those follies - hope the E2 levels show a few good ones soon!
