my ovaries have excellent listening skills

I have to admit that I am a little tired of writing updates about my anatomy.  I will relish the day when I can post solely about life...outside of infertility.  But for now at least I have good news.  It amazes me how much can happen in two short days, or how hard my ovaries have been working.  They have definitely been listening to my strong will, willing them to grow some healthy follicles. 

The running count now stands at ten over the nine millimeter mark on the left side and four over the threshold on the right.  There are another four on the right experiencing a bit of stage-freight but I am confident that will pass very shortly.  We are looking at close to twenty follicles.  So much can really happen in such a short time.

My lining is also looking good as it too has surpassed the threshold and is now in safe waters.

I also failed to receive a phone call from the clinic this afternoon which means that my estrogen levels did not do another flying leap upwards.  This is good news... my medications remain the same for now.... hopefully by Sunday the only thing I will be stuck with is the trigger shot!  Yes we are that close.

I told Andrew earlier tonight that I feel like the Easter Bunny because I am so full of eggs.  This likely makes no sense but I honestly do feel so full and bloated... and it will only get worse before it gets better...but it is worth it and I am excited.  This is more real than ever and the prospects and possibilities are there.  They exist..finally.

And it snowed.  It was lovely.

Happy weekend!
