First follow up ultra sound

So I've done 5 days of injections thus far (no bruises or major blood spurting). I went in this morning for the first follow up ultra sound. I have many follicles four 7mm, two 8mm, and one 9.1! I'm more than a little surprised to have one that big thus far but am excited. I have to go back on Thursday to get another follow up but hopefully there will be 2-3 big ones. I'm hoping to be triggered this weekend and inseminated prior to Thanksgiving. I'm listening to my circle bloom PCOS cycle mp3s every night and I think it's helping me to stay calm and accept things as they are going. I'm also avoiding unnecessary stress and problems. The only bad thing was the scale. I've put on 2 lbs but I think it may be that my clothes were heavier. Last week I was in leggings, a tunic, and suede ankle boots. Today a cotton oversize shirt, vest, heavy dress pants, and sneakers. So for me I see 2 pounds in all of that. But I am thankful for things as they are. :)

Once more!

Today was CD3, that means yet another appointment with Wandy! Woo. This meant that I got to sleep in an extra 2 (!) hours, which was marvelous. Once I was up my husband wondered to the kitchen and made me breakfast. It was super delicious.

My clinic is so very nice. Even though it had been almost a year since we had come in, people still remembered us and were all "where have you been?!" and it was nice to reconnect and still feel positive. As is par for the course we didn't see the RN until about 10 minutes after our appointment time (even though we arrived 10 minutes early). Then it was on to the wand, lining looked good but still have a bazillion small follicles. So then it was on to talking about this cycles cocktail. 2 vials Bravelle and 1 vial Menopur every night. I go back on Monday to see what (if anything) has grown. I know I say this every cycle but this cycle feels different. I feel positive and upbeat. I'm not going to let it take over me and am still going to do the things I like to do (minus drinking and such).

All in all I'm quite happy about things, which is a nice change of scenery.
