CD12 Morning Thoughts...

Today is CD12, and I had some follow up monitoring this morning, bright and early at 7:30am.  I'm still waiting on the "offical" results, as always, but I figured it never hurts to give an unoffical update.

This morning the observing doctor was actually my own, Dr. K - usually I have Dr. L in the mornings, but it was nice to see my real doctor... even though I really like Dr. L as well.  ANYWAY, she told me this morning I had three leading follicles... on Tuesday, I had four (15.5mm and 12.5mm on right, 13.5mm and 12.5mm on left).  Not sure what happened here, but it is definitely something I plan to ask when she calls with the results.  Maybe she just doesn't consider something 12mm and smaller to be leading... who knows.  I was a little concerned because the largest follicle I had on Tuesday seemed unchanged; in fact, it seemed like it actually shrunk.  She said she would look back at Tuesdays results and compare while I got dressed.  I checked with her on my way out, and she said 1 of the 3 follicles stayed the same (guessing the largest one), and 2 of them had grown slightly... to me, that means probably 1mm or so.  We'll see.

So more waiting, as per usual.  I'm nervous because it seems like I really do need the FSH injections to keep progressing, considering my improvement has waned since stopping the injections on Monday, but at the same time, I'm worried if we start back up, I'll start to overstimulate again (she said I have a LOT of small follies waiting in the wings).  I just have to keep busy today at work and hope the day goes by faster.

In other news, I feel absolutely miserable today (and yesterday for that matter).  If you don't remember, on Monday, I was feeling pretty rough, but I attributed it to my increasing dose of Metformin.  For the past two days, though, I've feel like I could throw up at any moment, and my head feels like it is about to explode.  My husband has been sick, but not with these symptoms, so I can only assume it has something to do with the medication.  I just really want to go home and go to sleep!!

Be on the lookout for the official results this afternoon!!
