Saturday morning at the hip clinic

Today was my morning appointment, and it was less hip than last week. No super clubbing hotties in the waiting room. Just a few scared looking dudes (seriously, I felt so bad for them. The were looking around most of the time with a freaked out look in their faces).

Going into this appointment, I decided I was NOT going to care/think about follie count. However, US tech was extra chipper in interpreting my results. She said, "Looks like you've got 7 good follies!" and I thought, "Shut the hell up!" ha!

Whatever they are, I do not care. My RE dropped my Follistim/Bravelle/Gonal to 150 tonight and 75 tomorrow night. I continue with my Menopur 225 tonight and tomorrow, and add Ganirelex both nights. I go in again Monday for what should be my final US and BW. I think I am triggering Monday night for a Wednesday retrieval.

I can't believe it's almost over. I still feel very little in my ovary region. My left side (the one kicking out the most follies) tugs a bit here and there, but mostly I feel like I am about to get AF or that I have to have a bowel movement. Neither one, of course, is going to happen. I am super regular with this TCM business, so these feelings must be the ovaries. I felt a shit ton worse with clomid/menopur with my IUIs.

I am happy to make enough good and healthy follies for good and healthy eggs, whatever that number is. I'll find out Wednesday, and that's all I can do.

I know this stuff is all about increasing odds but I feel like those seven are superstars. And seven is a totally lucky number, just ask Vegas! ;)

Plus, one of those is totally your baby. I really really hope so.

Grow, follies, grow! I'm so excited for you!

And I cracked up at those poor guys in the waiting room - aren't they awful? Everybody knows why they're there...

Thinking of you!
