I need advice, people.

Ok, so I had my appt this morning and it didn't go so well. I was hoping the nurse would say "Trigger tonight and IUI on Valentine's Day, girl!" Nope. Turns out my follies aren't even "measurable" right now. Hmmmm. That doesn't seem good, does it? I finished clomid on Tuesday...you would think they would be somewhat "measurable" by now. So I'm scheduled for another appointment on Tuesday. But here's where I need your advice...

My trigger shot came today. It was $80.00. I also dropped $140.00 at the RE's office this morning. And next Tuesday will also be $30.00. I'm thinking of maybe "cancelling" this cycle. And here's why. We only have two or three IUI's left that are covered under the insurance. I'm thinking we should save those for more injectible cycles. I responded really well ("Beautifully" the nurses said) to my first injectible cycle. It didnt result in a pregnancy, but my numbers were all great. Clomid and I arent really friends. It's a give and take relationship. Where I'm giving and she's doing all the taking (of my money and sanity). I just feel like I dont want to "waste" this trigger shot and one of our IUI's on a clomid cycle. And it's already not going well. I mean we'll still try it the "old fashioned" way and hope that the Clomid pulls through for us...

What do you girls think I should do? :)

I think tonight is my last night of internet for awhile, so I hope to catch up with you all in a few days!

OMG...did anyone else watch the Dateline special "Inconceivable" that was on tonight? WOW. It was about this couple who did IVF and the WRONG embryos were transferred. I sat and watched and I don't think I took a breath through the whole show. I can't even imagine.

this is such a hard question to answer. If it were me, I would want to save the insurance benefit for the injectible IUI. My clomid response was crappy too, but I did much better when they switched me to follistim. You could still go for it the old fashion way when the timing is right, right??? Clearly your RE's opinion on this is most important, what are they saying?
Good luck with everything!!!!!!!!!!!

I never responded AT ALL to clomid so I would feel the same way. I always hated making these decisions, so I hope you can make a decision that you feel good about!

I did watch Inconceivable last night and it was crazy!!! I felt so bad for both families and can't imagine being in their shoes...

I never responded to clomid. It didn't do anything for me. Since we are completely OOP, I would probably lean towards canceling this cycle. If you know you respond much better to the injectibles, I'd put my (insurance) money in that basket.

I wish I would have known to dvr that Dateline! Hopefully it will be online so I can watch it. That just sounds like a nightmare. I couldn't imagine!
