I have a comment…fluck


I went in this morning for my suppression check.  I finished the last of my 9 days of birth control pills on Sunday morning and this was The Big Day…and…we found another cyst.  It is borderline in size and may be on its way out.  I told DocO and the nurse I was feeling pains and pangs on my right side for several days about 2-3 days ago but things have quieted down for the most part.  Those pains have gone away, but there was still a cyst on the ultrasound.  I asked, “it’s on the right side, correct?”  Nurse Sara was surprised and said, “That’s right.  You’re just like the princess and the pea, aren’t you?”  “Yeah, I am by now” I told her.  It’s funny how much this ride can make you in tune with your insides.

So I’m a great IVF patient on paper.  My lab results came back great…again.  I am well suppressed, the cyst doesn’t seem to be causing an estrogen spike.  My E2 is at a nice low 37.  My FSH is 8.1.  I have 10-15 follicles on each ovary (yeah, we’re talking like 20-30 eggs percolating in there gals).  There is so much to raise my hopes, so many good things that hint at a great start, but here come the cysts in to make my princess bed all lumpy and uncomfortable.  <sigh>

So here’s the current plan, I took another birth control pill today and will do so for 2 more days.  I am supposed to go back on Wednesday for another ultrasound, and hopefully the cyst will measure smaller and we can get this show on the road.  If it is unchanged or bigger..well I dunno.  I guess I’ll have to lay on that bed after I make it.  Peas and all.

I was reading and commenting today and I got a word verification that summed up my thoughts on this exactly…

fluck

Yes ladies and germs…fluck, which could mean what we think of first or the optimist in me says it can be a compound word for follicle and luck, which is exactly what I need right now.

I also find those word verifications to be uncanny sometimes...

Those are fantastic numbers - let's shrink that cyst into oblivion!!

Alas, I am still a zombie as far as feeling the delicate insides are concerned....I never feel a thing when I ovulate!

*giggles* Lots of fluck to you!

Now if I may have a word with your ovaries?

Ok little ovaries, listen up! It's time to get your poop in a group. Enough of this cyst stuff! We want a bunch of nice healthy follies and that's your job! Send that cyst packing and get to work!

I hope they listen!

OMG. ROFLMAO. What a great word. I like your version of it, even better.

But seriously...having JUST been there and done that, I am pulling for that little cyst to dwindle. Everything else looks SOOOO good. There musta been something in the water in the pac NW that we all drank this month. Sigh.....
Sitting tight for you. :)

ARG! Curses on the cyst. I was just thinking of you this morning and hoping for an update... I just wish it would have been 100% good news. SHRINK, CYST, SHRINK!

the infertile breeder on September 15, 2009 at 2:47 PM said...

I'm sure you're right and the stupid cyst is shrinking down as we speak. Good riddance!

Kate on September 15, 2009 at 5:12 PM said...

Well, hope your cyst behaves the way mine did on my successful cycle. I think I had 3-4 cysts between 13-20mm when I had my baseline scan. My E2 barely rose (lots of stress) and they slowly shrunk over the next couple weeks. May your darn cyst start to shrink mighty soon!

I hope things are better in a couple of days and the cyst is gone! Your numbers are great and should be a source of hope for you!

Fluck - just added it to my vocabulary. Wishing you much much luck for this cycle. Hugs from one IF sista to another.
