So Close... CD13 Update!

I got my CD13 results from this morning a little earlier than normal, which really makes my day because I was really antsy this morning.  And, the results are...

Estrogen = 405 (up from 270 on CD12)
Right Ovary = Two leading follicles, one at 16mm and one at 17mm (2mm improvement from CD12)
Left Ovary = One leading (still not quite mature) follicle at 14.5mm (1mm improvement from CD12)

So, even though I am not quite there yet, this is exciting news for me. Tonight, I'll take one more shot of Follistim (50IUs), and will be back tomorrow morning to check on the status.  The doctor seems confident that I will likely trigger tomorrow... which means our IUI will likely be on Sunday.  And worst case, if I am not ready by tomorrow, they are very confident that I will be ready before the end of the weekend.  Yay, yay, yay!!

This news has of course made my day.  I feel significantly better than I have all week, so that also helps.  Honestly the worst thing is that I feel so bloated!  I mean, its so bad that my pants hurt... or rather, they are hurting me.  I have never wanted to be in PJs so bad in my life.  It is going to be the first thing I do when I get home!


  1. Strechy Dress Pants

    These things are the BESTEST! (I call them my "period pants".. I figure that come in handy for that, FSH bloating, & a future baby belly)

  2. Wonderful! I was gonna go by the mall today to get some new pants, like go up a size in jeans, and I'll have to look for these! I hate feeling like I have a muffin top :( LOL

  3. New York and Company usually has a loose waist dress pant selection! Glad to hear the awesome progression you're making! I better be reading you have a baby on the way in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile Maddie and I anxiously await home studies and foster placements :)

  4. LMAO! Maddie I didn't even look at your link! How hilarious that I said the same thing! We've been at this for WAY too long!
