I had lost some weight and then gained it mostly all back since January, but I am now officially 15 pounds lighter than I was in December. I am happy and feel great about it, especially since according to the RE my only real impediment to not getting pregnant is being overweight. I’m not sure I buy that, but I should lose more weight anyway.
Our IUI, despite having near the best chances it could (my lining was a little sad at 7mm), was a fail. My trigger stayed in my system for over 16 days until my period came, which definitely gave some false hope. I had a good cry about it, but to be honest, because it didn’t really address any issues we were having, I’m not sure why it would have worked to start out with. I ovulate on my own around the day I ovulated on Femara, so all it really did for me was give me a second good follicle and thin my lining. Even if we did get fertilization, I’m not sure what our chances of implantation would be.
I’m starting to think that I am among the growing number of women who are just infertile after a c-section. Maybe my body is just rejecting pregnancy because someone cut into my uterus and stitched it back up and this intrusion is acting like some sort of unintentional IUD.
