Shooting for the moon

It's a close one... The Right follicle is at 18mm and the Left one is at 17mm. It's a virtual tie and my nurse expects that both of those will ovulate!!!

Over time I have learned that my ovaries have different personalities. Lefty is the Drama Queen. She makes a fuss no matter what and should be ignored 90% of the time. Righty is the serious one and should be paid attention to if she indicates something is going on.

Trigger tomorrow (Thursday) night and IUI scheduled for Saturday morning. My lining was at 8mm today... the HSG was good... 2 follicles... I feel like I am so well positioned to succeed this cycle it will really be hard if I don't and the questions will really start to creep into my head.

I cried a little on the way back from the appointment. I feel like I'm at the edge. There is nothing left in me but desire to see this succeed. If I have to carry twins to make it happen, I will do that. If I have to endure bed rest, If I have to have a C-section, whatever, I will do that. If I have to start all over again next month I will. I'm a stronger person today than I was 6 months ago and I know how badly I want this and will not turn away from the difficult path.

I'm so excited that you might have two shots at this cycle! Good luck! I know what you mean about feeling that this is it. I'm starting to feel that way about this new cycle and it's only day 1!

I'm so excited for you! Those are some lovely sizes for follicles. You are a strong person, and if you have twins, you will handle it just beautifully!
