Channeling my inner turtle. ***Updated***

So far this has been my morning:

Say out loud three times in a row. "Slow and steady wins the race."

Breath deeply.



My appointment today. Meh. There was some progress but my numbers are well behind where they were two years ago. Even Dr. Dreamy commented on it. I heard him let out a LOUD SIGH while doing my follie count on the right side. Bugger. My lazy right ovary perked up a little, he counted five follicles measuring between 8.5-14.5. Left side counts were 11 between 11.5-15. So we are slooooooowly making progress, but anyone that knows me knows I am not a patient person.

Usually I want it and I want it now.

I don't expect anyone to go GET it for me, perfectly happy to go fetch it myself, but waiting is not my strong suit.

Excuse me while I repeat my mantra again.

{Slow and steady wins the race}
{Slow and steady wins the race}
{Slow and steady wins the race}

Deep breath.

Sorry. Where was I? Oh. I am now waiting for a call from my nurse to report my estrogen levels for today. On a positive note, my lining is rockstar worthy again. 8.5 with a triple pattern. Now *that's*more my speed.

Will post an update if there are any changes to my meds...if my E2 levels are still a little low, Dr. D might up one of my doses again. Sigh.


My estrogen (E2) levels did rise to 690 in normal range, but they are still increasing my meds. I will now be on the maximum dose of one of my meds. Suuuuuuuuper. I go in on Saturday morning bright and early at 7:45 for another check.  It looks like my retrieval will be on 7/30 and transfer on 8/1.  It will be here before I know it, I just hope these follies grow a TON in the meantime!

LOL, I need a decoder for your blog posts lately. :) Just kidding, but it is funny that there is a "language," right?

Sorry that you have to wait. Deep breaths, and remember that the best things are worth waiting for! :) Thinking of you. :)

Slow and steady, all right! That is the way to go (spoken by someone who had moderate OHSS!). You are getting there, one follicle at a time.

Yay for the lining! BEAUTiful!

Would you think I was wacky if I said I have a really good feeling about this? I had a dream we were just hanging at the park with the little guys and you were pg. It was like good but eh, old news. I'm just sayin'. :)
