The IUI that wasn’t… May 3, 2010

I’m supposed to be getting my final IUI right now but it unfortunately was canceled. After 8 days of Follistim injections I went to Dr. W on friday morning for my final ultrasound before the IUI and he discovered that they over stimulated my ovaries and I produced too many eggs. He decided to cancel the IUI due to the risk of conceiving multiples. I was crushed! How did I go from not being able to even conceive one to having such a high risk of multiples.  I had spent the last 8 days giving myself shots and spent roughly $1,000 in ulstrasound appointments all for nothing…it was a tough pill to swallow. 

I will say that I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband.  He took friday off with me and we just lounged around the house and took it easy.  Then saturday he sent me and my friend Mary to the spa for massages and mani’s and pedi’s…he is serioulsy the sweetest!

So now we’re on the path of In-Vitro.  It will take a few months to save up the $15,000 and for the doctors office to get prepared for us.  So we’re taking the summer off of all things fertility and we’re just going to enjoy it.  We have several trips planned in the next several months so we’re just going to make the most of it being just the two of us for a little longer.
