Scared, wired, optimistic.

Today's monitoring appointment went well.

Left ovary: a 20mm follicle
Right ovary: a 13mm follicle
Uterus: 7.2mm lining

I'm ready to be triggered. Oddly enough, I didn't realize that I would have to give myself the trigger shot. I'm totally weirded out, never having ever injected anything (except a turkey, with its own juices). I'll have to practice on an orange. Also, we might have to inject the ovidrel this afternoon, when we're scheduled to be at a party. And I thought those stories of shooting up at a party would never be a part of my life. Oh, how I was wrong.

There are babies everywhere this morning. I'm choosing to take it as a good sign. Everyone I encountered at the clinic today was optimistic and said "well, hopefully next time we see you you'll be pregnant". Amazing. These people seem to want it almost as much as I do.

Yaaaayyy!
I love the optimism!!
Today my RE said (in response to my pessism): "studies show that optimistic women get pregnant more often than those that aren't". Take it where you can, girl!
Thinking only POSITIVE THOUGHTS for you and Mr. D.
peace

Those numbers look amazing! I would be very confident if I was you that this is going to be a very good cycle. Injecting yourself? Oh no, my silly December, that's Mr Decembers job, that's why you married him! I am going for a lining check tomorrow, we'll compare, I'm hoping for an 8mm.........Good luck!!!

Klubby, Mr. December has severe needle phobia. If I let him inject me, most of the ovidrel would end up on the floor, pulled out of my belly as he fainted. Trust me, it's better that way.
