Guess what I did for Valentine's Day!
As predicted, my current cycle began of February 3rd with my period arriving just in time to make dance practice Friday evening a non-starter. We stayed home and played Warcrack instead, me with a nice heating pad in my lap. I took Clomid CD3 through CD7.

I went in for my ultrasound this past Sunday morning to see how the follicles were doing. For those you who are not in the Boston area I should mentioned that it snowed on Sunday. I shovelled 8 inches off the sidewalk while I waited for the cab to come. Calling a cab was a smart move... there were white-out conditions, the roads were covered in spite of constant plowing, it was pretty messy. When I got to the Harvard Vanguard place in Kenmore square there was a note on the door saying that the facility was closed because of the weather, but that fertility patients should ring the bell. That's right, if I had actually been ill they wouldn't see me, but people my ultrasound was on. It makes perfect sense give the fact that fertility care is both time critical and highly specialized, but it still amused me.

The ultrasound revealed that I had a 20mm folicle on my right ovary and a 15mm folicle on my left. I was told to trigger that night. Its a good thing they were open. Of course, that meant I had to drive Warren in to do his bit at dawn the next morning. I thank the gods for the guy who came by with the snowblower towards the end of the storm. That's the best $20 I've spent in a long time.

We did the IUIs yesterday and today, and from the looks of things I'm probably ovulating today. I actually not that hopeful about this cycle, but if it does work it'll make for a great story. I'd get to tell the kid that they were conceived on Valentines Day, then deliver the punchline of how.

Oh, that would make a great story!

Tee hee hee. Today is the Westminster dog show, and recently I told a friend whose dog has reasonable chances that I hoped this Valentine's Day led to some action! (In his case, the stud fees.) So I feel a bit silly hoping your holiday likewise leads to successful procreation - but as you say, it makes for a good story!

Besides, now you've odds of a pumpkin baby - so good luck!

You prefer having someone else driving the car in bad weather?

I'm not saying that's not a defensible position. I'm just suprised :)

I'm pretty comfortable driving in the snow, but I didn't want to risk losng my parking space. Also the conditions were bad enough that I worried that even my snow driving skills (which are pretty decent) would not be enough. I figured if the car I was in was going to skid into something and get banged up, I'd prefer that it not be a car I owned.

Good luck! When do you get your blood test this month?
