Monday night update...

Went to the dr this morning and got some good news, even though at first it wasn't seeming very good. As I've explained in some earlier posts, to trigger ovulation, the dr wants to have my follicles at least 18 mm large, in addition to thick enough lining for implantation. Today, my lining actually had gotten thinner--not good--and the follicles on my right side hardly grew at all--not good. But the good news was that the follicles on my left side went to town over the last 2 days! On Saturday, I only had one follicle on that side that was at about a 13. Today I had an 18, a 15, and an 11. (The right side has an 11 and a 13.) So that means that we are ready to trigger! But they wanted me to do one more shot tonight, to get some of the other follicles to grow a bit more, plus some extra medicine to make my lining grow some more.

So....I go back in tomorrow for a final (hopefully) sonogram, and I hope that they will be ready to trigger! I'm feeling pretty hopeful that this round will go on successfully! Thank you for all your prayers and support! I'll update again tomorrow!

You only need one! :-) We will keep praying.

My back has been hurting for two weeks, so I asked my doctor about it today. She thinks it's from a cyst that developed on my ovary because of the extra hormones from the drug....Have you ever had that? She says it will go away.
