Well, wouldn't you know it... right on cue my body kicked out a cycle day one!!  I went in for my baseline testing and to check lining to see if we're ready to start the stims yet.  We aren't. :(
Lining was at 6.1mm and he needs it to be 5mm or lower.  So I will go back to check again on Wed.

As far as follies:

Left side is showing 7 with biggest being 6.1mm and the others not far behind.
Right side has 5 with biggest at 5.5mm
So a total of 12.

I had blood drawn and will find out the numbers tomorrow I guess?  Not sure how long the turnaround is on those.

I also asked about what I should be taking to work on my MTHFR since I know that this is a study, so I have limited access to the doctor overseeing the trial and no access to my own RE since he is not involved with this -- even though it's being run out of my own clinic.  I just want to make sure we don't get this far and then lose the baby because of the MTHFR so I had to make sure that base was covered.  They said that as long as I am taking Prenatals and Calcium there is nothing else I can do... I don't fully trust that.  Any other ladies dealing with MTHFR have any suggestions for me as far as supplementation?


  1. Hi, I'm so happy to have found your blog! I am anxiously awaiting an update from you. I am also started the Afolia trial in Texas. I'd like to stay in touch :-)

    1. That's awesome! Where in Texas? Our clinic is in Webster (near Houston). Are you stimming yet? Or where are you in the cycle? Do you blog?

    2. I'm in Dallas. I'm on BCP right now. I'm in the process of starting my blog now :-) Glad to hear that you're moving right along! Babydust.....

  2. Oh and to answer your question, I read that you can take methyl folate for MTHFR. Here is one of the articles:
