Converting to IUI

I went in for my b/w and u/s this morning and was ready to see two follies growing strong. I was not surprised with the results. My measurements were:
Right - 1 @17mm, 1 @11mm and 2 @9mm
Left - 1 @ 21mm, 2 @11mm and 1 @ 9mm

My RE called me at work this afternoon and we discussed (very discreetly in an open office) my results and options. He said he would support my decision to go forward with IVF but that my chances were the same with IUI and IVF with 2 dominant follies.

So, I am triggering tonight with insemination on Thursday. I think I am taking 1/2 Thursday and Friday off work.

I've made peace with the decision to convert to IUI and will be hopeful that dh's little swimmers will meet my eggs. I know my chances for success this cycle, but I'm still going to hope.

Sorry about the conversion. There's still a chance with IUI - many have had success before us. Good luck on Thursday and great to take the time off work. Fingers crossed for you.

I know you're disappointed, but I'm really happy you're moving forward!!

From what I hear, you'll feel better after an IUI, but I think taking a couple of days off will serve you well.

Everything Crossed!!

Good luck with the IUI! I know how disappointing it can be to convert from IVF to IUI. That happened to me on my first cycle. Fingers crossed for you!!
