Starting 2013 With a Bang…

Monday, December 31st, 2012.  CD10.

So upon worrying myself sick about it, I decided to reschedule my monitoring ultrasound for today instead of Wednesday (CD12) because I was worried that by then I might be ovulating on my own and unable to tell if I had any mature follicles.

(Holy run-on sentence, Batman…)

I figured that since it’s a bit early, I probably wouldn’t have any good-lookin’ follies today, but it turns out that there’s a nice-sized 17.5 on the right!  I also have two 12-going-on-13s on the left that we are hoping will catch up by Wednesday (CD12) when I will trigger.  My lining is nice and thick, as usual, measuring a bit over 10 today.

I started the Menopur 150iu injections last night (in the bathroom at a really nice restaurant during a family dinner… of course), and other than feeling increasingly tired, that seems to be going well.  I’m hopeful that this double-dose will boost my twelves and make my seventeen a healthy, mature sperm-magnet.

On the downside, stress, lack of sleep, dehydration, Femara usage, and myriad other holiday-related issues have led to a bit of an irritation, which might make the next couple of days a bit uncomfortable.  I won’t let it deter me, however!  This isn’t the worst thing I’ve had to go through on this journey to a Take Home Baby, and I won’t let it stop me from trying my best this cycle.

I know how we will be spending the first few days of our 2013, and I have to say – not too shabby.  😉

I hope you all have a fantastic, beautiful, bountiful New Year, and that 2013 brings all of our dreams to light.

Thank you for reading, my friends.

    I know what you mean about injections at a family dinner. I had to do that Christmas Eve. Praying for the biggest, most mature follies for you!
