IVF Update CD 10

Quick update: today my biggest follicle was at 16mm. I have about 10 follicles on the left and 8 on the right. I go back in for monitoring tomorrow. They are estimating retrieval will be Sunday or Monday. Things are moving fast! I don't have time to update much more than that: my "fertile friend" (the one with 3 little kids) is in town and I am spending all my time going to playgrounds and parks. It's not so bad, really. I will write a post soon about her kids. They are cute but sure are a handful. I've been cuddling the littlest one, trying to get her to send my uterus some baby dust! It's been keeping my mind off this cycle and as of this moment I'm still feeling very calm. I think the circle + bloom is helping. Or maybe the acupuncture. Or maybe all my hope has been sapped away over the last 20 cycles and I am now an empty and emotionless shell of my former self. Anyway, I'm calm, so I'll take it!


  1. You are cooking up some fine eggs there! I am glad things are calming down despite having such a brood to chase. My fingers are crossed for your retrieval.

  2. Woohoo for some great follies and quick retrieval!!!

    And, I'm so glad that you're feeling calm. I am so excited for you!!!!

  3. Holly follies! That is great news! Keep us posted :)

  4. That's a BRILLIANT number of follies. Really, really good. I'm glad you are on the move so much - it does help to have things take your mind off of it.

    I'm thinking such good thoughts for Sunday/Monday. May the calm continue to then, and well beyond!!

  5. Things are looking good! I'm glad its moving along fast, my fingers and toes are crossed for you!!!!!
