My eggies are not mature enough yet.
Neither am I. Nor Jeff.
I went in on Tuesday at day 10 in my cycle for monitoring. I was expecting the nurse to do my ultrasound again but to my surprise my Dr. came to do it instead. I realize that its better when the Dr. does it but its a little weird to have a young male Dr. be the one to use that dildo cam on you. My nerves would appreciate it better if he was older, frankly. Or if it was a woman. Either way its never comfortable having people all up in your "business."
Today I was prepared mentally to have to deal with my Dr. but thankfully I got the nurse. Tomorrow I go again. By next week, my body will have its own routine: get up at 5:20 am (Ok, 5:30... I snooze twice, its my law!), get my legs up and have someone check me out. It's been almost 2 years so when this is over I might not feel normal to keep my private parts.... well, private. I'll have to find some way to adjust I guess. And if I can't, at least I have the option of becoming a stripper.
My follicles went like this:
-Right ovary had one. It went from 11mm on Tuesday to 11mm today. And a bunch of smaller ones that stayed the same. So not impressive! Retarded, actually.
-Left ovary had 2. One went from 11mm on Tuesday to 12 1/2 mm today. A bunch of smaller ones stayed the same. BUT the other one went from 13mm to 16mm. Somewhere deep down I have a little level of maturity!
I have to wait for my follicles to mature to at least 18mm for it to be triggered to release my egg. Jeff and I were selfishly hoping that I had two mature eggs so that we can take the easy way out and have twins. Doesn't seem like that is going to happen but we are so proud or our "one 16mm follicle". Which is probably for the best considering we ourselves are not matured enough. Want prove? Well when I was telling Jeff the sizes of my follies, we automatically both said: "Maybe we'll have one big baby and one small one." Real mature of us! lol
