Further Concerns
I had the morning follicle check. The good thing about the weekends is that the doctors do the calls for the patients, and my doctor is smart enough to call my cell phone.

The news is that I have a nice pack of follicles at 15mm and one that is 19mm. The plan is to go in again on Monday, with the idea that its likely we would trigger that night. That would make retrieval on Wednesday.

It was only after I got off the phone that the worry set in. What about the one at 19mm? What if it decides that it doesn't want to wait and I ovulate before them. I've certainly heard of it happening to at least one other woman. Then again, how good was the measurement? Its a different tech on the weekends, and that follicle was only 15.5mm on Thursday. I don't know.

I guess that given how the cycle has been going so far I really don't feel like I'm being paranoid or pessimistic to worry about the worst happening.

Well, you know that that's almost exactly what happened to me last month before my IUI. It was a much less expensive wasted cycle for me, at least. Could you see the ultrasound yourself? Did the follicle look that much bigger than the others?

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

No, they have it tilted in such a way that I usually can't see.

Well, that sucks. They always turn it so I can see it and talk to me about what everything is. ("That's the uterus, officer! I'd recognize it anywhere!")

Maybe you need to enlist Warren to come to follicle checks and hover for a bit.

I hope it all works out.

At 7:45 AM??? Are you nuts? You used to live with him, you should know better.

Good point. Maybe you should bring twe with you before you carpool to work.
