Passing the time

Screen to be and some shade for my AC units
Loofah Plants #3 & #4

My Seed Starting Center
Loofah Plants #1 & #2

I bought a bouquet and chopped it all up

I don't have a green thumb. It's brown, not brown as in my lovely shade of African chocolate but brown as in plants die, they die so quick. But alas, I plant and plant away regardless hoping to fully the void of my uterus with "bringing life" to plants and caring for my fur babies.

Gardenia Crisis of 2014
I'm currently trying to grow hydrangeas from plant stems from a bouquet I purchased, trying to prevent my gardenia from dying while mourning the complete loss of her sister. I'm seeding lavender, feverfew, and I have an order of Mexican cigar seeds on the way. My loofah plants are bearing fruit, it's fine I just want to snuggle with it and suggest it start a blog documenting it's journey so other loofah plants can find inspiration to keep fighting.

Two follicles one on each overy, the left side is dominating so no iui for me this month. They told me to call them when AF arrives... Womp.

Baseline Lab Results and IUI

Add caption
Our appointment went great last Tuesday! My RE explained away all of my bleeding and gave us the green light to continue fertility treatments. RIGHT NOW! August 5th I was on CD19. I started letrozol that day and my last dose of letrozol 5mg was yesterday.

I surprisingly not stressed about this cycle. I'm scheduled for our first follicle scan this Friday.

I can't say I don't have hope in this iui the same as I can't say that I do. I'm not overly concerned with the outcome since we started planning our ivf cycle. 

My husband just applied to a job that will give us infertility coverage including iui, ivf and meds! What a gift that would be! Just waiting 2 weeks for union formalities and then we should have our answer. 

On a scale of 1-10 I'm at a 7 since I don't feel infertility stressed out today. Just going through the motions.

Lab results are in

Looks like my dhea levels are decreasing along with my odds of conceiving. Womp. At least my testosterone isn't kissing 300. That's nice.
