Stepping Away From The Edge

I feel like I can finally breathe a little...

THANK YOU ALL for your positive thoughts and prayers!

This morning's ultrasound went much better than last Thursday's.

Dr. Hope started with my uterine lining, which looked great. Then he briefly scanned my right ovary, and then headed over to the left. He had some trouble finding that tricky left ovary, but when he did, we saw lots of follies! He joked that all I needed, "was a little extra fertilizer!".


I didn't ask for a exact number, but I know that everything he measured was between 12 and 13 mm. I'm to keep up with the 150 iu twice a day, and head back in on Wednesday for another ultrasound and more blood work.

I'm so relieved.

It doesn't mean anything yet, but I just feel like we at least stand a chance, you know?

  1. I'm really pleased for you that the doctor saw several follies today. Its always a bit depressing when they see only one. I pray that when you go back on Wednesday, they will be growing well and getting ready for retrieval! Good luck!
