Those are some of my follicles.
Not bad huh? My RE visit went well today (a trend?). Lefty has tons of follicles. 6 of them between 14mm and 16mm. And in a crazy shakeup Righty must have been pissed that I talk badly about him (I don't know why an ovary is a him, but he is) and decided to kick it in to high gear. That is correct. Righty has surpassed Lefty in large follicles with a whopping 8 between 14mm and 16mm. It turns out ovary rivalry is a good thing.
The blood draw was a little dramatic. I have one "good" vein. If blood doesn't come out of that one we are pretty screwed. Well that poor little vein is covered in holes. My nurse said she could feel the scar tissue. But we needed to get blood today damn it! So Vein was asked to go back to work. 2 nurses, a little digging and two needles later we got just enough blood to test. And we fought for that blood. I even had to pump on one of those little foam balls the whole time because each pump brought another tiny drop into the vial.
This above paragraph is something I could never have read let alone written before all of this stuff. I have locked myself in a doctor's bathroom so he couldn't draw my blood. Now I laugh at the face of needles. Ha Ha! (okay...they are still super scary so maybe it is more of a giggle).
ER now looks like either Saturday or Sunday. But I'm still hoping for Monday.
