Here we go again

Well, the ball was set rolling today for the next cycle: Dr. Careful found no cysts. I am grateful for small blessings.

I'm increasing my FSH dose by 50%. We hope my period comes in a few days. When it does, I'll start injecting again. I was looking forward to a stress-free cycle, without having to worry about moving or meeting contractors. But guess what? They're moving my cubicle at work. Most of my stuff is in the lab and I spend very little time in the cubicle. Still, I consider it to be bad timing.

Also, the yellow dog came down with kennel cough. She takes one pill every 12 hours and another one every 6 to 8 hours. She is, of course, banned from doggy daycare for another two weeks. Which means I'll have to sacrifice my 30 min lunch "hour" to come here and let her out, and find a way to have my lunch in my cubicle (as long as I still have one).

So much for a stress-free cycle


  1. I have never heard of a stress free cycle, feels simply impossible, right?? Hoping though that things do go smoothly for you. Much luck to you!!

  2. Glad there were no cysts!! I hope everything goes well this cycle!

  3. Hope everything goes well this time and poor yellow dog :(

  4. Pearl - I agree...cycles are never stress free, but hopefully as you go through it things will fall into place more. Wishing you all the best this cycle! I hope yellow dog gets better soon...poor little thing!

  5. Here from ICLW: I hope that this cycles goes better for you...I'm in the TWW of my first IUI cycle and like yours the start was a little rocky and very much like a Laurel and Hardy comedy of errors but a lot more stressful! Sending lots of positive thoughts in your direction!
