Time for my first morning monitoring post! I've been reading these for so long, following along with so many bloggers' growing follies and changing expectations for their cycles, that it's kind of fun to finally get to write one of my own. Much more enjoyable than another series of posts bemoaning my tortured relationship with Pissy the CBEFM and wondering if Lawyer Guy's and my genitals would rupture from overuse before I managed to ovulate.
I'll start with some good news: my lining plumped up to 9.5 over the last two days, so there's nothing to worry about on that front. Phew, what a relief! I feel a little silly for stressing so much about it on Friday, but this is all new and overwhelming, so I think I'm entitled to a few overreactions now and again.
In other reproductive news, my rightie follies are now 17 and 17.5, just under what they need to be to trigger. So close! If my bloodwork shows I'm already surging we go back in tomorrow for the IUI, but if I'm not we trigger tomorrow and do the IUI Tuesday. Either way, I should know what to expect by this afternoon.
Doing the IUI tomorrow would be better from a logistical standpoint: both Lawyer Guy and I are free all day and have plenty of time to handle the appointments. If we do it on Tuesday I'll have to figure out what to do about my 10:15 am class in Queens-- maybe push it back a half-hour or find a friend who can fill in for me. But I'm willing to do whatever's required to make this happen.
So now I just wait! I'll update later today with the doctor's instructions.
Update: No LH surge yet, so I'm going in tomorrow morning for more monitoring and most likely the trigger. IUI probably to follow on Tuesday.
I'm back, and it's hopefully not a once-off!!
