CD 11, fertility goodies

What your viewing is the remnants of breakfast: apple turnover, strawberry turnover, and the wrapper for the most delicious chocolate donut stuffed with vanilla pastry cream. This was my treat for my Saturday morning monitoring appointment. There's a donut shop about a half mile from the clinic. So today I thought, heck, it's a Saturday morning. Why not get a doughnut? DH was all too happy when I walked through the front door at 9:00 AM with this pastry box. Of course, I am crashing now, but whatever.

The monitoring appointment went fine. All of my big follies grew about 2 mm. I have 3 definite dominant follies, one almost there, and two that could be something, so that's a total of 6 big ones. Last month I had three major dominant follies and 3 minor ones, so I am about the same. My right ovary is the one producing so many this time. That's about right since it is technically the right ovary's turn. The problem with that is my right tube is blocked, so my left tube will have to pick up the eggs. This is all so very scientific and confusing to me. Sometimes I just wish there really was a stork who brought happy, loving couples a baby.

I'm waiting for the phone call to tell me if the IUI will be on Monday or Tuesday. I plan to take the day off, so as soon as I know, I'll need to send emails out to my lovely students. The one thing about working for a 2 year college is that when you cancel class, students jump for joy. If it were a regular college, I am sure that one or two students would be pissed.

I'll post more once I know. Right now, I'm taking advantage of this crash and napping. Cheers!

The pastries look delish! Way to treat yourself! That would thing with the egss traveling to the open tube blows my mind. How amazing our bodies are even when we think they are failing us at times. 6 is awesome! Can't wait for the IUI and then that darn 2ww.
