l.i.b.e.r.a.t.i.o.n. theory

love, life, and the pursuit of liberation

the clouds part

Yesterday was a shitty day. Period. Now that that’s out of the way, I’m happy I have good news today!

  • I have 10 big follies (over 9) that are measuring from 12-14mm. The head RE (not Dr. On-it) says that I may be triggering as soon as Sunday!! [edited to add- triggering means taking a shot that will induce ovulation (egg release) 34 hours later]
  • He also said I have above average #s of lead follies. Yippee!
  • I’m starting to feel it today. Nothing uncomfortable or painful. Just noticeable. Kind of like gas bubbles down in your ovaries.
  • Is this for real?? Is this actually happening?
  • I am awaiting the call about what to do with my dosage. My follies took off with the half-dosage so I doubt they’ll raise it again.
  • I’m on to daily monitoring since I’m in the homestretch. Dildo-cam daily. What joy. Is it sad that I’m so immune to it that I text, IM, and tweet while being probed?

So that’s where I stand!

[edited to add- the regular folks guide to what the hell all this means and what’s involved will come soon 🙂 ]

    Sunday?? Wow, you got your eggs going!!
    I am very happy for you and will think of you. Sorry-I m am not that good in ART…does triggering means/equals egg retrieval? Or does this happen later? This is exciting!!

      Sorry that I slip into lingo and forget that 99% of people have no idea what the hell I’m talking about.

      Triggering means to take the shot that induces ovulation 34 hours later. Then they’ll retrieve the eggs during that time, fertilize them, then transfer the embryos back into me 3 days later.

      I think I need to do a ART overview for those lucky enough never have to go through this 🙂

      Thanks lady! I vacillate between complete optimism to “maybe it won’t work.” At least I’ll know SOMETHING in less than a month.
