Looking Good!

This morning's ultrasound showed that I have two mature follicles ready to go. What I thought was interesting is that there is one in each ovary - last time I had two in one ovary. Anyway, they are larger than I remember from our previous attempts at this. I heard the doctor say one was 28mm and the other 30mm. I guess that's good.

After the ultrasound, they shot me up with some HCG and sent me on my way. Now I'm resting on the couch because that shot makes my hip sore. My sweet husband prepared a delicious lunch for me, and he's going to run an errand for me so that I can take it easy.

Tomorrow morning we'll do our first IUI this cycle. We are excited to see how many swimmers make the cut! Our RE seems to be interested in knowing more about the procedure Michael had because he hasn't had any other patients do that. He said it was "innovative". He's right. It is. And, hopefully it will be just what we needed to do to overcome our IF.

Tomorrow night Michael will leave for his European tour, (sad face...) so Friday's IUI will be with some "defrosted" swimmers. Oh, well. It's all good.

UPDATE:

Wow... I can REALLY feel those follicles doing whatever it is they are doing. So much pressure. Ouch! I hope they will settle down tomorrow. This is no fun. I had forgotten just how uncomfortable this part of the process is.
