Actually this news is about 12 hours old but I am just now getting a chance to post.
I know you were all on the edge of your seat all day just waiting for me to update.
Overall, the appt was GREAT. I still have some smaller cysts on both sides, but comes along with the PCOS territory. I also have a few potential eggies on both sides, but they are pretty small (which is why I'll be starting Clomid in hopefully about a week or so). I get to quit taking the Provera (YAY!) and now we wait for AF to arrive. Then I'll call and schedule a few US's for monitoring, start my Clomid on CD5, trigger (following another US) with the HcG injection and then enter the dreaded 2ww. We will not be doing IUI this cycle unless my CM shows "unfavorable conditions".
My RE (who I have raved about before and will continue to do so) is hilarious. He asked how I was doing since coming off the Aygestin. I jokingly said "Well, I'm a lot nicer." He laughed and said "Yea, that Aygestin is an evil drug. I throw people on it just to make sure their marriage is ready for a baby. If they can make it through a week on it, they can make it through anything." Honestly, so true. It is an evil drug, but it works and it got the job done (and Ben survived unharmed!).
So that is where we are. Right now we are just waiting for AF to arrive so we can get this train moving. I have been spotting since Wednesday or Thursday, so now that I have completely stopped taking the Provera, AF will be right around the corner.
And there you have it. A complete update on the status of my ute. You're welcome!
ETA: I need to take a minute and just commend Ben, my other half. He worked last night (as he usually does before my appt's) and was exhausted when he got home. He knows he does not have to go to all my appointments but has never missed a single one. He really struggled this morning to stay awake during the almost 2 hours we spent at the RE's office but remains my best source of support. He knows how physically, mentally and emotionally draining all these medications, ultrasounds and procedures are on me and knows how much I am dreading these upcoming shots, but has never strayed an inch from my side. He is really trying to understand what it is like for me, even though it is impossible (you know, because he doesn't have a vag or female reproductive system, haha). He is amazing and I couldn't have picked a better person to go through all of this with me. If you read this, Ben, I love you to the moon and back and to the moon again.
