Hot damn! Just call me 'easy'

Had my RE appt today for an u/s to check what's happening. I'm on cd8, have had 5 doses of Follistim. I felt some twinging going on yesterday, then today it was getting downright uncomfortable with the typical burning/aching pressure that I feel with ovulation. I was a little concerned b/c I didn't know how long we'd be waiting to trigger, and I assumed it would only get worse as time went on.

Well, I have a 20mm follicle on the left and a 21mm follicle on the right Click here to enlarge I was sent home to take my trigger shot RIGHT NOW! and we go back in the am for the IUI. He said my lining looks good, and I will start Prometrium 2 days post IUI.

Now, the inevitable paranoid thoughts start kicking in...would the follicles show differently if I had *just* ovulated, like this morning? We haven't bd'd at all, and we can't do it now b/c we have to have a good sample for tomorrow. So if I released any eggs already, we're screwed. Well, not screwed Click here to enlarge

I am trusting the doc but I can't help think bad thoughts Click here to enlarge

Thanks, guys Click here to enlarge I'm so giddy today, but then I think about all the times I've had BFNs, and the inevitable anxiety that will hit before long...wugh. It's going to be a long 2ww, but I'm thrilled that at the moment, things are as good as they can be.

So Callie, how about you? Any symptoms? The nipples still standing guard on your chest? Click here to enlarge

Have you attempted to sneak in an early hpt? You're about 10dpo, right?

I tried one yesterday and it was a big negative. Of course, that was 9dpo, so shocker there. Click here to enlarge

I'm fine. Nipples still at full attention, but my breasts hurt and I'm a little cranky, so I have a feeling its PMS. I'm currently drowning my sorrows in Indian food. Click here to enlarge

I was expecting to have time to order the cheapo hpts online so I could start them at 1 day post HCG so I could watch it dwindle to nothing Click here to enlarge C'est la vie.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you Click here to enlarge

And you know, really, you don't need a sensitive test- you're probably giving yourself a fair amount of hcg! Click here to enlarge

Yes, but they are only 80 cents each from the earlypgtest site, if you buy 20, and the shipping is free. Unless you order priority Click here to enlarge So it's even cheaper than going to the dollar store. Only drawback is the fact that they tend to ALWAYS have an evap line. Just gives you something else to obsess over.

I couldn't handle that. Click here to enlarge I tend to pee, shower, then look. It leads to much faster showers, but still. Eek. Click here to enlarge

You know, it just occurred to me how rather funny it is that they are selling pg tests in packs of 20. It's good there are other people besides us out there that are just insane about testing. Click here to enlarge

Wow, MM, that is quick! 20 and 21 mm sounds good to me - don't worry about having ovulated or that you're going to ovulate too soon - they'd be able to tell that from the u/s. Hope it's quick and easy for both of you tomorrow. Click here to enlarge
