I have beautiful cervical mucus!!!

My weekend of fun with Dr. Haas continued this morning. Ultrasound showed that my 14 mm follicle from yesterday is now 17.5 mm which is great progress in one day! Our goal is 18 mm so we're getting close. And of course, he drew more blood.

So, this cycle has now been changed into IUI round #1. (For my vet friends, it's the same as AI in cattle. Except he won't use his whole arm hopefully). So, we go back tomorrow morning for more labs and another ultrasound to check my follicle.

We're planning on IUI on Sunday or Monday which entails going in at 11:00 for insemination. I'm kinda excited because it's the best chance we've had so far. I do feel a little bad though because Dr. Haas is no longer going out-of-town since he's seeing me all weekend.

I'll post in the morning after my appointment to let you know how things are progressing!!!


  1. What great news! I hope this is it...can't wait to see that BFP! What an amazing doctor to cancel his plans!

  2. Great news! Looks like we are on the same track. I go in tomorrow as well and see how the progress was. Yesterday one follicle was 14mm and I have been taking follistim meds for the past 10 days. Tomorrow I go back and see how my follicle is growing. So they are saying Monday or Tues for the big IUI! Good luck. Praying for you! So exciting!

  3. Yay! I jut had my first IUI on Thursday, and it was quick and easy. Wishing you lots of luck with this!!!
