Hurry up….and wait

I went in for my “follicle check” u/s today. Two large follicles, one on my left and one on my right. They gave me an Ovidrel injection, and the IUI is scheduled for late tomorrow. We’ve also been instructed to have sex Friday morning.

I’m a little worried about the size of the follicle on my left ovary – it’s HUGE (no WONDER I’ve been feeling my left ovary) – I don’t even want to post the number. I don’t know why I’m fretting about it – there’s nothing I can do now. The RE was surprised that I hadn’t yet had an LH surge with the follicle as large as it is. I haven’t had any other of my typical post-ovulation symptoms either.

I feel like someone setting out on a maiden voyage…I’m not an IF virgin anymore. I’m excited, nervous, anxious, and a little sad at the same time. I’m feeling a little sad about having to jump through all these hoops. I think I’m kind of mourning the fact that we won’t be getting pregnant the “old-fashioned” way. I don’t know why that’s hitting my today, but it is.

The wait begins tomorrow.

  1. oh, i’m keeping everything crossed for you, sweetie!! i’m gonna be checking in like a stalker in the coming days!! you’re in my thoughts and prayers of course!

  2. Good luck tomorrow! That mourning thing hit me too. I think I cried while laying on the table after the first one thinking about it.

  3. I think the first one is always hard – so go easy on yourself. Best wishes for a smooth (and successful) IUI

  4. Good Luck tomorrow! I’ll be stalking as well to see how things go!!

  5. I remember that mourning. You are letting go to being able to create a family like everyone else does, it is a loss.

    I’m glad you’ve moved forward, the healing comes later.

  6. Mrs. Hope I hope it goes well… and you’re SUCH a tease!! I want to know the size of that hyperachiever follie!

    I want this to work out for you. I want it for every one of us IF bloggers, but for some reason I’m really, really hoping hard for you that THIS is the ONE.

  7. I had huge follicles when I was on Clomid. I’ve had various opinions. The Gynae said he was worried as big follicles can raise the possibility of multiple pregnancies. I really felt them.
