Not So Great News....

We had an appointment yesterday to do an ultrasound and check my follicle size. Well a week ago they were measuring about 9mm. This week most of them still measured 9mm. The biggest was 11mm. So the doctor came in and told us there is nothing more he can do for us. My body does not respond to the clomid and it does respond a little to the injections but not enough to release an egg on my own. Everything else is in perfect shape. So, we are going to be starting IVF. We call a doctor in Crystal Lake on Monday to set up a consultation and go from there. My doctor said the plus was that I have a lot of eggs and they develop great and I have a great uterus so our IVF should (knock on wood) work the first time and he said most likely because everything else is so good, we should have multiples. That would be awesome. Ofcourse he wont back his words on that because there is a chance that if we put two or three embryo's in they wont all take. I talked to Tanner and I think we are going to put three in and pray that 2 take so that we don't have to do this again. But if we do ever decide to do it again, it is not too expensive to freeze the remaining embryo's. I am excited and scared all in one. Mainly because to do this we will have to drain our savings and probably take a loan out for $10,000. OUCH. But, we will get through it and in the end I know it will be so worth it. I just want to get things started because right now it is all that consumes my mind.
