Yesterday was a very eventful day. It was CD12. I went in to do the usual BW and US and check on my follies. On Friday, I had 16 and 13 on my left. So by my math the larger one would be perfect and maybe the smaller one would catch up. I had a positive opk on Sunday and again on Monday. I have had many positive OPK and then nothing happened so I was not worried. I went in and to my happy surprise they were both gone. I would have never believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. When I got my blood test results, my estrogen and LH went down and my progesterone went up. I am in total shock.....I finally ovulated on my own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I told DH that I want a congratulations on your ovulation cake...
Wow, so something is making my ovaries pay attention. Last month the lupron trigger worked and this month I had a release without a trigger....................could it be the fish oil, the pycnogenol, or the co-Q10???? Is is like a game of clue.
Later on that day, I had my first dose of intralipids. This is a food source and not really a medication. It is oil that is supposed to calm down my over active immune system. A nurse came to my home and started an IV. Her technique was great. I did not feel a thing. I have had many IVs put in and they can be very painful. It has to drip slowly so it does not get stuck. It took 3.5 hours. The nurse was very nice. We talked the whole time.
She checked my vitals to make sure I was not having a bad reaction. Everything went smoothly.
After she left, I noticed that I had some spotting. I freaked out bc I have never ever had any type of mid cycle spotting. Then I thought I had a reaction to the intralipids. It was still there this morning, so I called the nurse. She said that sometimes when you ovulate you can have some spotting. It is gone now, so that sounds reasonable. I also Googled it, so I am not worried anymore.
I am waiting for my instructions, but I assume that I will start the progesterone tomorrow. Then I have to wait for the P+7 blood draw and get my NK cells retested to see if the intralipids made a difference.
