Saturday we had our first follie check. I had 2 dominant follicles at 10.8 and 10.7, and the next two largest were 8.5 and 7.8. I am sure there were others, but my doc only wants 4 good ones to avoid high order multiples. I have forced myself not to think about that predicament too much as I am more consumed with it working at all, much less working too well. My RE was very pleased with how my body was responding to the meds, and I left his office feeling very proud of my 39 year-old, over-achieving ovaries!
Follie check #2, aka date #3 with dildo cam, is tomorrow morning at 8. I am a bit anxious because I have a feeling that since I am on the fast track that this IUI is coming up end of this week. If for any reason my eggs have deviated from said course, then I have a whole other set of neuroses about running out of meds. So far we have shot up 875 iu's, and we only have 325 left. I have asked for time off from work this week starting Thursday until Tuesday of next week. Way back in December (like a lifetime ago in retail standards), I tried to plan out my cycle so I could be home with my feet up after this procedure. Thanks to being incredibly regular, it looks like my plan will work. But, of course, I am still more than a little apprehensive about believing I could be that fortunate.
On a completely different note, I would like to thank everyone who has visited and commented on this little blog project of mine. It is only about a month old, but I sense it will continue to be my safe place for some time to come. I started this as a place to vent and record my feelings without being a burden to those who may be tired of listening to my trials and tribulations; however, I have found comfort in knowing that someone out there is still listening voluntarily. So again I say a million thank you's for making me feel less alone in this world of uncertainty. If any of you have blogs and would like to attach them in your comments, I would love to get to know you all better as well. To my real life friends who read this, thank you for sticking by me. I can't say all have been so brave. xoxo
