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.
