Off to the races ...

So we went to our ultrasound appointment yesterday and my 14mm follicle almost DOUBLED in size and I have one follicle that 23mm in size - yowza!

This is very good news. This is the exact response that my RE wanted to elicit. So we have an opportunity at pregnancy this month - oh how I pray that we get pregnant and it's a healthy baby that can be delivered into our arms in 9 months.

Because I triggered yesterday (with hcg) I have forced my body to ovulate sometime today or tomorrow (most likely today) ... so we'll know almost exactly when we conceive (if we conceive) ... isn't that weird?

So now we wait. We'll know in two weeks if sperm does in fact meet the egg.

This will be our first attempt at getting pregnant on medications. The doctors have told us that by taking these meds we will increase the egg quality and thus increase the chance of a healthy pregnancy.

Lord, please bless us with a baby. A healthy baby that we can raise up to know You.


  1. Yay! I'm so glad you had a good response and didn't have to scrap the cycle. Oh, that is good news!

    Hoping and praying with you.

  2. my prayers are with you! On another note, I wanted to tell you that Sole Desire in the Santa Rosa mall had the chocolate Uggs that we wanted - I got a pair =) I know you are going up there soon, so I thought I'd let you know just in case you were having trouble finding them. Also, I was told that style (Ultra) is sized normally instead of bigger like the classic version. This was true for me. Love you!

  3. Hooray, Polly! I'm so glad that follie caught up. Sounds like a perfect one! Fingers and toes triple crossed that in two weeks we see a super happy post from you.

  4. Yay! I'm glad for you both. I hope this month is it for you!

  5. Congrats on such a great response! I hope this is your cycle!
