CD20, At Last My IUI Has Come Along

My u/s yesterday showed that my biggest follie is now 24mm. So it grew from 15 to 24 over the weekend. Let me remind you that it took one week for it to go from 11 to 15. The only change was that starting on Friday I went from 75iu of gonal-f to 112.5iu per day, and I stopped the estrogen patches. And my estrogen is now at 613, which I'm liking a lot.

My RE (Dr. "Young" this time) was super extremely positive about it all.

Dr. Young: "It looks like things are going really well this cycle!"

Me: "Really?"

Dr. Young: "Yes, I think you had a really nice response and have some nice follicles."

Me: "Well, I really only have one follicle that's still in the game at this point, right?" (and yes, I really did say "in the game," and I liked it after I said it because I was imagining a little 24mm follicle with a football helmet running around the field all by itself with all the other littler follicles cheering it on from the sidelines. Anyway, I digress...)

Dr. Young: "Oh no, it looks like you have 2, maybe 3 more follicles at 12mm that could release mature eggs."

Me: "Ummm... okay. But it also took me a really long time to get to this point."

Dr. Young: "Sometimes that's how it works. But I think things look really good! Let's hope that this cycle is successful!"

Me: "Yep, that's what I'm hoping for." (Okay, I didn't say that because it would've sounded really sarcastic, but that's probably what I wanted to say.)

Oh, and at some point in that conversation he said that the 24mm looked like it was "ready to pop."

So the plan is IUI tomorrow morning! And finally, finally, finally I will be in that horrible interminable 2ww. Yay!?


  1. YAY, better late than never!! And I'm dying over your image of your leading follie running down the field all by his lonesome, go follie go...lol!! I'm also loving what your doc was saying about the 12ers releasing some eggies too! You are totally in the game, best of luck tomorrow. C'mon IUI #3 (for us both)!!!

  2. Kick some butt little football-helmeted follie! I am rooting for him from Chicago. :) That is amazing it grew so big & strong over the weekend. What an awesome monitoring appt. I LIKE IT!!!!!

  3. Oh my gosh, good luck tomorrow! Dr. Young is some character, I just want him to get you pregnant (not him personally) so you can get this party started!
