So what went on ... every morning we were up early and off to the fertility clinic. As I've said before, Evelin is an excellent responder to medicine, and they wanted to keep a close eye on how her follicles were developing. We ended up on Saturday night going from a 1-ampoule dose down to a half amp, and Sunday night they had us coast, which meant no shot. This morning she had eight (I think that's right) follicles greater than 10 mm, which is a lot. I'm sure the doctor is going to be concerned about the risk for multiples, but I think Evelin would rather we risk having to face selective reduction or something rather than cancel the cycle. It's hard to tell how thing's play out from here. She thinks we may have to do another half amp or so tonight and we already have another appointment for tomorrow morning. Sometime this week we'll trigger ovulation and then, two days later, head in for the IUI. All in all, it's a really weird way to go about making a baby ...
Other stuff: We saw Whale Rider on Friday night -- excellent movie that had us swinging up and down over and over again. We also rented Say Anything ... and watched it on Sunday; it's surprising how well that movie held up over time (excepting, of course, for the hair and the clothes).
