TORONTO - In today's interview, the uterus belonging to Decemberbaby* indicated that motivational posters are not particularly hepful.

A poster reading "do your part - grow a decent lining" was installed yesterday in order to encourgage the uterus to increase the thickness of its lining from 0.4. Investigations this morning found that the lining is now measuring between 0.6 and 0.7. Doctors were satisfied with this measurement, but Decemberbaby is less enthused.

"Last time we did [Femara and IUI], the lining was at 1.0. I've always thought that thicker was better," she sighs. "I thought the poster would help, and it did, but perhaps not by enough."

Time seems to have run out for the uterus to live up to Decemberbaby's expectations. In an ultrasound earlier, the dominant follicle was found to measure 2.1, indicating that it is time to trigger ovulation.

Only time will tell whether yesterday's motivational poster will be replaced by a demotivating poster reading, "Failure: When your best just isn't good enough."

Intrauterine insemination is scheduled for this Sunday.

You know, femara suppresses estrogen, so it make take until tomorrow or Sunday to rise again and fluff up?

I'm crossing my fingers for fluffy.
