No, I most certainly did NOT want quadruplets. I have a completely irrational fear, in fact, of having triplets or quadruplets. To be honest, for a first pregnancy, I’m even adamantly against having twins, even though I’ve always wanted twins.

To repeat: I’m positively terrified of high order multiples and even twins make me wary right now. So um, yeah. I was definitely joking about losing my chance at quadruplets (because even if I’d had four mature follicles… the odds of ending up with quadruplets were infinitessimal).

I’ve actually made it clear to my RE’s office that twins are acceptable, but anything more than two is their responsibility. (JUST KIDDING ABOUT THAT ONE TOO!)

Too Tired for Eloquence

It’s 8:10 pm and if the three year old weren’t WIDE AWAKE, I would have been in bed 2 hours ago. Ugh. I have a cold, but also the Follistim makes me exhausted. Bleh.

Anyway, I’m too tired for an expansive post, but the bottom line was that there was decent news this morning. It appears that one follicle has decided to be dominant and the others are shrinking away. So much for quadruplets…

As always, the details are in my Google Spreadsheet for IUI #6.

Oh, and good news: While it is still quite low compared to what a normal human would expect, my estrogen finally went up! It was 113 today. Whoo hoo. Dr. Amazing was covering monitoring today and he reminded me that this is my last IUI cycle. I’m glad he hasn’t forgotten, because I sure haven’t.

That’s really all I have energy for. I hope you all are well. I’ve been reading, but have been so swamped, I haven’t been able to comment much. Sorry!
