Not a good appointment today. Last Thursday we had an appointment and had 12 follicles which is awesome for me considering I barely had one last time. We were all excited going to the ultrasound this morning because we thought this was it. We were on a new cycle, had tons of potential eggies, and were doinginjections. Due to the number of follicles I produces on Follitism alone this time, she didn't want me to start the injections until Sunday. Hoping that some would not continue to grow (by the way, I gave my self the shot last took me 30 minutes to get the nerve up but I did it). Today we found out that all of them grew. Which I noticed I felt bloated and just uncomfortable and come to find out my ovaries are covered. Well, we were given two options to think about.

1) cancel the cycle. Way to many follicles to take the risk of going forward and getting 12 fertilized and then having to make the decision of selection rejection (aborting some of the eggs) which I cant imagine we would want to do that.

2) Turn this cycle into an IVF (In-vitro: take the eggs out, fertilize, and then implant) which is cheaper then the regular IVF cycle. When she said that I was thinking, hmmm...regular IVF is $10,000 so what is cheaper...ohh just $4000 at the day of the appointment. Now, please tell me where a 25 and 24 year old can come up with that in a few days. Just not going to happen.

So, really are only option is too cancel the cycle and just start a new one next month. Good thing about this is it want waist our insurance cycle...they allow us 6....we have only done 2, this would be 3. So we will still have 4 cycles left which is promising. I just am not ready to make that commitment...IVF is last case scenario and we will have to have some time to consider if we want to go through that process. So, as of right now. This is were we stand. We will let you know how Wed goes....we might get lucky and have only a few reach mature size....but I guess only time will tell.
