CD 15 update

So, my estradiol level from Friday's appt is 538. My estradiol level from today's appt is 452, which means I did in fact ovulate sometime between Friday & today... more specifically I believe I ovulated late Friday night into early Saturday morning. I really really thought I did & apparently I was right though during the ultrasound itself the nurse didn't see any signs of ovulation. All she saw was nice big follies... 6 total (not all were mature) & several were over 20 mm! Of course b/c I already ovulated there will be no trigger tonight but that's okay... we're not out - we could have caught that egg yet!

I'm not upset since I know God is in control AND I know His hand is in this & has been from the beginning. I'm trusting Him. I'm actually very excited & hopeful that THIS IS IT... this is THE cycle!!!

If, however this isn't the cycle, the RE is going to up my dose next cycle to hopefully prevent early ovulation. And thankfully, praise the Lord, we have infertility coverage on our insurance so we can do another round. But I will say that we are approaching the end of this journey. I'm not sure how many cycles of injectables we'll do but we won't go further than this, I don't believe. It's not impossible to change my mind but I do & have thought for a long time now that injectables is the end of the line for us.

So now we wait... we wait 2 weeks to see if AF shows or not. She's due Friday (Aug 20th) or Sunday (Aug 22nd) depending on who you ask... according to my normal luteal phase of 12 days she's due Friday but if you use the standard 14 day luteal phase that means Sunday. And if I am pregnant this cycle then I should be due April 30, 2011.


  1. Can't wait to see a BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I pray it is the latter!

  3. Hello Amanda, how are you doing? Do you know the book 'God's Plan for Pregnancy'? I just ordered it and I'm really exited to get it.
    Greetings from Germany

  4. Kerstin! =) I'm doing pretty well! How about you? I hope you are well also! <3 Never heard of that book but it looks AWESOME!!! I may just have to check into it. Let me know what you think when you get it! =) Thanks so much from dropping in & letting me know about it! =)

  5. I'm glad to hear you're doing good. We're fine. I'm having an appointment to see a German OB Gyn, we decided to give clomifen another try. They told us that it is still possible that I could get pregnant naturally, but it doesn't hurt to use a little help. The doctor my husband got to see was very positive, he said in the end all it needs is just one sperm, and that it is indeed a miracle that he even has sperm after his reversal - since the vasectomie was 15 years ago. He said we're half way there and shouldn't give up now. He is right! I'm glad he was so positiv. I'm sure he was guided by our Lord. <3
