CD11. Mid-cycle ultrasound for IUI 4 is now in the books.
Before I go into my day, I have to say i HATED that gonal f injection. It did not hurt, the needles was quite stubby, but it was 1 ml of fluid and that stressed me out. At one point I thought the plunger was stuck and I panicked. How the hell was I going to stick myself again?!?! Turns out I was being a sissy but come on. Injections are scary business! I even had a glass of wine after to quiet my freaky, baby self.
As for today I actually enjoyed the ride in. All 2 hours of it. I listened to Micheal Jackson and desperately wondered why he had to kick it because I bet he was a blast to watch in concert. I also listened to Steven Tyler and kinda wished he was my boyfriend. Not because he is sexy, because that is a false and weird statement, but because if I birthed a child by him I bet I could get my student loans paid off. I know that is also weird and I am not proud that I think such things.
Lining between 6.9 to 7.8 mm. This is a huge improvement from the normal 6.1. I guess the doc did know what she was talking about with that second, icky injection. I was definitely going to be a crazy patient and demand to know her exact reasoning. Thankfully the crazy train left the station without me.
Left ovary had 1 follicle worth triggering for and the Righty had 2, one that is ripe for the picking and the second sitting at around 15mm. So theoretically we have a potential of 3 follies for this cycle.
Trigger at 1 am in the bloody morning. That is a dumb time, I am sad it even exists but that also means that we don’t have to leave town until 9:30 am on Thursday. Much, much better than leaving at 5 am. We are again to have that really cool thing called timed intercourse today, which the Hubs again questioned me about. Does he really think I am lying? What man questions having sexy time?!?
I am pretty stoked about this cycle and today’s big reveal just makes me more happy. Yay, y’all!
One more thing. As the ultrasound was in mid wanding, I kept thinking that, first, please don’t let anything particularly embarrassing escape down yonder. I had a few diet changes recently that just make things more active. Second, those ovaries are sensitive little buggers! We have to learn to palpate cows for pregnancy during vet school. Part of that process is rectally grabbing the cervix and pulling the reproductive tract towards you. Once that is done, then you find the ovaries and palpate them. I bet that shit hurt cause the wand hits some pretty sensitive lady bits. No wonder they wanted to kick us.
