One is not enoughI was waiting to see my GP for a smear yesterday, getting my periodical update of Hello magazine, when I came across a beautiful lady who lived in a stately home and had just had her second child. "I feel like a real mother now", "We have a proper family now". I have long suspected that three does not a "proper" family make, so thank you Hello magazine for making this official.
I do remember some mumblings about becoming a real family when I announced our second pregnancy, and I don't remember getting terribly upset about it. You live and learn.
Another day, another doctor's appointment. Scan for follicles today. So, what's the biggest follicle you've ever had? Go on, I challenge you to a duel of follicular mass!
Do I win? Please tell me my useless body is best at something. The 29mm may just be a large cyst (although there was none showing at this stage last cycle), but the 25mm should have an egg inside. I was right about being due to O several days ago - the Orgalutran I've been taking since Mon prevents this. One reason is to avoid an early O, but the main reason that I can see is so that the clinic can ensure their patients O between 9am and 5pm, Mon to Fri.
So, 2 large follicles, lining 10mm, trigger tonight and IUI on Fri. Deep breath, and off we go again.....
