Things are moving along, time is rushing by. I enjoyed a blood letting and coochie cam extravaganza at 7:45 am on a Saturday morning. Boy, did I love getting up that early, lemme tell ya. No coffee, eyes barely open. I let MrBeep sleep in and keep the bed nice and warm for my return. DrKAwesome checked me out and declared my endometrium “nice and thick” which I will assume is OK. Then she checked both ovaries and started measuring follicle sizes. Lefty was in a funny position and hiding, but we measured 6 follicles at 8 – 12 mm. Righty measured 8 follicles at 8-12 mm too. So it looks like the growth is pretty even. There are no cysts or follicles measuring way ahead of the rest of the bunch. My E2 numbers are at 598, so that went up nicely from two days ago (221). My meds have stayed steady since the beginning of the stim cycle so I think that is good too. I am nervous about these things because last cycle we ran into drug issues so hopefully that won’t be the case this time. So far it seems things are working OK. (Knock on wood)
MrBeep is so wonderful. He prepares my meds every morning and evening while I watch (as an added quality assurance check). Sometimes we mix it up and I mix/prep the injections while he verifies the protocol (I know, we’re wild like that!) He refuses to ever just prep the meds like last time, he has to double-check the doctor’s website to make sure that none of the medications or dosages have changed. He’s thorough and very scientific. I highly recommend having that quality assurance checker, it really helps make you feel like you’ve done everything right and no important steps were forgotten, plus you get the added bonus of hugs and kisses on a job well done.
I was a good girl and finished the rest of my boring work that I was procrastinating on today. I think writing about it to y’all embarrassed me enough to finally get it done. Now hopefully I can move on to a few more things that are fun or at least mildly interesting, like cleaning my desk and doing bills…or maybe I will just go for a walk in the sun.
