"Your ovaries have great potential"

While in the stirrups yesterday, dildocam in use, this is what the technician said to me. She was peering at the screen looking at "tons" of follicles. Yup, lots of eggs. They are just developmentally challenged. After about 7 days on the shots, there weren't any measurable follicles (we need them to grow to about 15-20mm).  So, they more than doubled my dose of Gonal-F (went from 75iu per day to 112.5iu two times per day). That's right: double the shots, double the fun!

I almost giggled when she said it though. It reminded me of when I was a little kid in elementary school. I used to get comments on my report cards that said, "Not working to potential" or "Needs to give more effort." By the time I hit high school, I swung to the other side of the pendulum, and started to drive myself crazy trying to get all my assignments as perfect as possible. That's kind of the way I approach TTC too. Always preoccupied with what I could do better.

It's nice to know that my egg bags are promising, if they give more effort.

  1. By the by, do you guys have a plan should a shitton of follies start ripening at the same time? Like, convert to IVF?


Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud!
