It's the night before IUI #6 and all through my ovaries, my two big 'ole follies are growing, ready to ovulate.
So my SIXTH IUI is tomorrow morning. And although it is my 6th time through this, I'm feeling good about my chances. I told the ladies in the lab that "the sixth time is the charm".
My ultrasound yesterday (CD12) showed TWO big follicles on my left ovary, at 22 and 26. I can feel them just ready to go.... I'm asking they hold on several more hours until tomorrow morning. While waiting on the doctor I closed my eyes and prayed I could have two or three follies ready this cycle, since all but one of my previous cycles produced a single follie. This prayer was answered!
I started acupuncture last week. I've been hearing so much about its infertility benefits that I decided to just do it. While I find it relaxing, I'm not sure I would do it if I were not dealing with infertility. It takes me 10 minutes or so to relax, but by the time the acupuncturist comes back in, I'm so totally relaxed I don't want to get up. And I continue to feel really good and relaxed for days after.
Since my IUI is tomorrow, my beta date will be November 2.... which happens to be the same day I have an appointment with Dr. T to discuss IVF.
My Versatile Blogger Award post is in draft form. I just need more time to clean it up... but I will finally post it sometime very soon.
