The Waiting Game

By the middle of February I had yet to start a cycle since miscarrying in December. I decided to contact my doctor and see if there was anything we could do about that. I went in for an ultrasound and blood test. Everything looked good, so I was prescribed a medication to induce a period. I was told to give it 3 to 7 days after the last pill. Naturally, it took 6. I would have expected nothing faster! It also happened to fall during our family trip to Disneyland. Luckily I started early enough that I didn’t have to miss any family time due to doctors appointments!

So everything was looking good after another blood test and ultrasound, which meant starting medication to get some follicles growing. I was on the exact same schedule as last time: cycle day one on Wednesday, start medication on Thursday, go in for follow up ultrasound the next Friday. That next Friday was today.

Things weren’t looking too great. The largest follicle was only 9 mm. They usually give the ovulation trigger shot when one of them gets to 20 mm. Because of the slow growth this time around, instead of going back on Monday for another ultrasound, I’ll be going in on Tuesday morning. I’m hoping for good growth!

If all goes well and I get (and stay) pregnant, we’re looking at an early December birth. I’m hoping with all my might that that will be the case!
