Having my first ultrasound on CD10 to prepare for trigger shot and IUI. What exactly are they looking for? What would be ideal?

I went in last month for a CD10 and they said they could see the follicles growing but coudln't tell how many or which ovary yet.  They said it was just to early.  Went back on CD14 and there was one on the left.  It wasn't ready yet.  Went back on CD16 and it was ready and almost to release and they did the trigger shot to make sure it released.

I don't knwo what size they were.

I believe at least 18mm. My last round of clinic 3 months ago I went in on cd12 and they were 20 and 22mm and they said those were great. I got to trigger that day. I go in Sunday for my cd12 us and hopefully trigger and will schedule iui. Good luck!

Are they looking for anything else beside follicles?

Ya they usually measure the uterus lining too, anything over 7mm is optimal I think it is...........also checking blood flow, ovary size, number of follicles etc!

Thank you. I'm worried it's too soon for the U/S but I think he planned it for then because I was scared that I Oed before my trigger last time.

I am having an unusually long period this time. Well, IDK if it's still technically my period but I'm on CD8 and for the last 3 days I haven't needed a pad or tampon but every time I wipe there is a little red blood. Does that mean I will O later?
