6dpIUI (CD23) and update

So I went to the RE's office for an ultrasound and progesterone check. Everything went fine in doctor's office and they said they would call me to let me know if I need to take my ovidrel booster and to schedule the pregnancy test. But then there was no phone call. I know I should have just called at 4:30 instead of waiting for them but I know I occasionally get my results late in the day and sometimes late means 6pm. I ended up tossing and turning all night, worried that I just ruined my whole cycle.

I called this morning and the nurse really put my mind at ease. She said my progesterone was 14 and to go ahead with the booster. Taking the booster just supports the lining and at this point it doesn't really affect the possibility of a pregnancy. My lining was pretty good, 13.19mm. Ahhh, I can relax now.

I'm scheduling my pregnancy test for the April 4th (CD35). Which seems like an eternity. Let's hope I make it that far!

The nurse did say something rather interesting. If this cycle doesn't work, they are going to investigate the possiblity that I'm not releasing eggs.?. I thought that was what the trigger shot was for. She also mentioned that they would increase my doses of Gonal-F.

It's too early to start talking about the next cycle. I'm stll in the game, right?


Update: I took the booster shot at my lunch break. I noticed this morning my boobs were a little bit fuller than usual but 5 hours after the booster shot, my breasts are spilling over the top of my bra (sorry tmi) and I feel like someone is squeezing and twisting them!! OMG, I can not believe how painful this is, I want to cry. Does anyone know what I can do to ease the pain? I've already tried tylenol but it is either not working or hasn't started to work.

That's a strange comment. I don't think the nurse should talk about a 'next cycle' in the middle of a current cycle... Baby dust!!!
