The two hour morning drive was actually not as painful as I thought it was going to be. Mostly because I always dread doing any type of grown-up activity on my day off. Instead I want to sleep until forever, hang around in my pjs, snuggle the babies, and do absolutely nothing. Driving to have that ultrasound is not quite the same as absolutely nothing. Also, I can’t lie, I am still recovering from Vegas. Age tends to steal one’s youthful fountain of wicked energy.
Regardless I did manage and enjoyed rocking out to all that classic rock that makes me think I am cooler than I am. Funny thing, though, was once I started the car the first lyrics that I heard was from Colbie Caillat’s Capri … “She’s got a baby inside
And holds her belly tight, all through the night…” If you have never heard that song, it’s quite a tear-jerker for me with all that crazy TTC stuff. But today I sat there and listened. And felt the emotion and love that song is meant to portray. Then I happened to peak in rear mirror and I could just envision a baby seat there. Maybe I could even see what would eventually, hopefully, somehow be our future.
Once I finally arrived I was ushered right into the exam room. Folks, I really, really adore this group. All through the appointment and ultrasound, the RN and I talked about her IVF pregnancy, her dogs, our Vegas trip, and everything. Every time I see her, I feel like I have found a real friend. She also called me Momma at the last IUI. It totally almost made me stop in my tracks but it also made me believe they all think there will be a positive in our future.
And we are blessed again that my right ovary is quite the little work horse again. A literal draft horse, I am telling you, just harness her up . Stats:
R: 16 mm and 22 mm
L: 11 mm
Not 3 but a nice plump one and another that will likely catch up in the next 36-ish hours. The game plan is literally the exact same as last time. Although one difference is the Hubs and I were ordered to do the dirty tonight, which I thought was odd (does that seem right?). Then trigger at 8:30pm, husband appt at 8 am on Thursday, and my appt at 9 am. Dr. Phy again has requested to perform the IUI, which makes me again feel very special, very much like she has taken a special interest in our treatment plan. I have no doubt they are going to be almost as excited as we are if one of these holds. What a wonderful RE and great, lovely staff!
And, of course, why not, again I am feeling pretty stoked and almost annoyingly fertile this round. I celebrated by getting a good work-out in. Dontcha worry, I will be hobbling from the bed tomorrow 😉 Thinking every single fertile thing I can think of…which as a vet can be quite interesting, to say the least
