Baseline Appointment

Today, I had my first bloodwork and ultrasound.  Everything looked really good.  It did take a minute to find my left ovary.  I wasn't panicing or anything, but I did think to myself that I do not remember misplacing my left ovary.  It should still be there!  My lady bits are tilted a little which caused the left ovary to be a MIA for a second.  But all is good!

Dr. A kept saying both ovaries and my lining looked great.  My smart alec-ness wanted to reply most people have to buy me a drink before being able to say that; however, I kept it to myself.  Not knowing if he would appreciate my anxious/nervous sense of humor. 

Tonights shots (and until told otherwise) will be Lupron = 5 units and Follistim = 225 units.  We are getting closer!

All I have is 4 more days until the University closes for Spring Break and then I have a whole paid week off without using my annual leave!  I cannot wait! 


  1. Sounds great! I personally think Dr. A would have laughed, but I also always kept such comments to myself :)

  2. Wonderful... glad everything is going so well :) I think he would have laughed too... I'm sure they hear all sorts of things :) FXd for you xo

  3. Your post made me laugh, because I, too, have debated (while in the stirrups) whether or not to share whatever hilarity I came up with because of my overcompensating nerves. This is my first time checking out your blog, but I'd love to follow your journey since I'll be starting my first IVF next month. Best wishes to you!!!

    1. I have to find the humor in it all or I would just end up crying all the time. Thank you! I appreciate all the support we can get.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Wishing you good luck sounds so hopeful!
