Well, here we are - our first cycle after the miscarriage. I went for bloodwork and the baseline ultrasound on Thursday. Everything looked great. So, I started my evening cocktail of Folli.stim
We are going to follow the exact same protocol as we did last cycle when we got pregnant. Stims for 17 days, trigger on day 18, IUI 36 hours later on Day 20. Let's hope that maybe, just maybe, we could be so lucky on our first try back? We have been at this since Feb of 2006 - that's 3 and 1/2 years. I think it is finally our time!
Ok, here is where I need advice from those of you in this TTC game - I asked the doctor about starting prog.esterone right at the time of IUI (last time we waited until after beta #2). She said that she would do it if we wanted to, however, from her experience and research, all it does is prolong the inevitable if something is going to go wrong. She said it will NOT prevent miscarriage, or make a pregnancy happen. If something is going to go wrong, it will - progesterone or not. She said that for IVF they do because it is actually a much more "artificial" process.
What are your thoughts??? Please weigh in - I have read a lot that supports both schools of thought. My gut says just trust the doctor, but I'm not sure what to do - and if it is true that all it will do is "prolong the inevitable" - then I certainly don't want that!
Keep everything crossed for us, please, and let me know what you think about the prog.esterone.
