Rookie Move

I was pretty confident I couldn't feel anymore bloated and swollen as I was yesterday. I thought that was a sure sign that I would be ready for my IUI. I was very very wrong. I had 3 eggs on my right 12mm, 10mm and 10mm. My left had one at 11mm. I'm waiting for the doctor to review my bloodwork and the ultrasound, but the nurse seemed pretty confident they would up my dosage and continue treatment for at least two more days, possibly more. I'm scheduled to go back in on thursday for a follow up. sigh......

I tried to take my dog for a walk yesterday, but after one mile I had to keep stopping because I had so much pressure in my lower back. I can't even begin to imagine what I'm going to feel like in a couple of days (or in a couple of months :) ). It's all for a good cause though so I'm completely willing to sacrifice my comfort for a chance at creating a new life.

Don't feel bad - with all that stimulation and blood flow going to your ovaries, it's hard to tell what's going on down there! My first (and so far, only) time with Femara and Gonal-F, I was sure I had at least 2 if not 3 huge follicles on the left, based on how I felt. I had nothing to speak of on the left, but 2 big ones on the right, where I only had a vague sense of fullness.

Fingers crossed that all goes well for you!
