Injectables Take Three - AKA Third time's a charm!

I had a great appointment today - There is no cyst!!!!!! What an obvious and definite answer to prayer. This is the first time I've been able to do medicated cycles back to back.

Dr. Dunn told me that he does not believe my test was faulty. He said the loss was most likely due to a chromosomal abnormality...in other words, my lining was functioning properly and we did achieve implantation. He said we should all be very encouraged by this - and we are!

He ideally wants to see me produce 3 follicles, so he said we will try to push my body a bit further this time. He commented that we still have a lot of wiggle room for adjustments between the dose from my first injectable cycle (125iui) and the dose from my second injectable cycle (50iui). So, for the third try we are going with 75iui, and we'll see how I respond.

He shared with me 2 stories about patients in his practice who became pregnant this year with 5mm lining. He said function is sometimes more important than thickness (not totally sure what that means, but it sounds good). :)

So, I just took my first injection tonight and I am feeling more optimistic than ever. I'll have a scan and bloodwork on Monday.
