u/s Update

Thursday, October 08, 2009

Have I mentioned that I am so impressed with my RE? His practice is part of a major university health system, and I am honestly thinking of switching to the ob/gyn down the hall from him... you know, after I get pregnant (this cycle). HA!! I never have to wait more than 10 minutes!! Today his schedule was jam packed, and the office is just efficiently humming along. LOVE IT!!! Even though it's a 40-minute drive, that won't be a problem when I'm in labor, right?

Anyway, the u/s went fine- my left ovary is still very camera shy and the smaller of the two, but I have one 12mm follicle on the left, and a 17mm and 13mm follicle on the right ovary (show off)!!! Also my lining looks good :) I am going to keep the same dosage of follistim for two more nights, have another u/s on Saturday morning, and most likely trigger on Saturday morning after the u/s. (I have taken 5 shots, and he said most people need about 7 before trigger, so I think I'm right on schedule.) YAH!! He says that it is almost crazy how people usually ovulate almost exactly 36 hours after the trigger, so O-time should be Sunday night.

Let's get this party started!

I am so full of praise right now. Among others, praise that I'm not overstimming, praise that our timing should be pretty darn great, praise for this gorgeous day, and praise for medical technology and innovation that makes all these appointments/treatments possible. Thank you, God!!! I pray for continued faith to seek Your will in all of this and to remember that You are in control here.

I know that You can do all things, and that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted!!! (Job 42:2)

Don't you love not having to worry about the timing? I suppose having to do it every cycle might become something of a pain, but I'd do the u/s's every time to save myself the trouble of second guessing myelf. Good luck!
