I Think This is Going To Be The One

I know I may look back on this post in a month and think "Damn I look like a total ass" but I do think this is going to be THE cycle. I had my first monitoring ultrasound which showed that I am having an outstanding response to medication this cycle. Normally at the five day mark I would have one or two follicles total measuring around 10 or 11mm. Not this time, folks. Think Big! Four on the right ovary measuring 17, 16, 15 and 13. On the left ovary I have two follicles measuring 11mm and 10mm. Almost immediately after the nurse inserted the evil wand she flipped the screen around to face me and said WOW. I think my jaw was on the floor the rest of the appointment.

Following the ultrasound the nurse began telling me that they most likely will still continue with medication for a day or so. She warned me that with this great response, my risk of multiples increase. She also began discussing the possiblity of putting in a circlage at my 9th week of pregnancy because of my increase risk of cervical incompetence caused by previous leeps. I'm still flaberghasted that she began talking about pregnancy related issues prior to me getting a positive HPT. The way she talked about it like it was a done deal has really convinced me this is The ONE.

I am just grinning ear to ear today and I honestly cannot focus on a damn thing. It can be a dangerous thing to be so convinced that this is going to work. I could be just on the cusped of being the happiest woman ever or on the brink of total depression depending on what that HPT says in 2 to three weeks.

I had the EXACT same feeling of certainty with the cycle that gave me Finn. I believe in these sorts of feelings!
