IVF 2 Update - More probeing.

Just a quick update as I cant be bothered. I'm bloody tired today and cant even be bothered writing, so there will be no witty banter here. Just a charming picture of the vaginal probe I have to shove in my fanny every second day, fun times. I know a few people that I'd like to stick that probe where the sun don't shine, he he he........well that's not very nice now is it. Tough.

Last night's acupuncture went well, it's all getting a bit damn sore, everything is so tender and tuned in (whatever the hell that means), he did a point in my toe and I kid you not but it was like someone stabbed a hot knife into my foot! he told me it should settle down and did I want him to take it out, I said "no, just leave it in, I can deal with the pain", I didn't want to be a wimp and have it removed as it's important to keep it in there, and sure enough the pain settled. My ovarian area was sore and my stomach is all bloated so when he put the needles in my stomach I felt like I was going to explode. Oh well all for a good cause.

Had my bloods and scan again this morning and no more fainting and the scan went really well, the doctor was really impressed and the reduction in Puregon dose has slowed everything down to a nice steady pace as it should be. My lining is now 13mm, and still the 10 follicles, all in similar size, all growing well as they should. There are lots of other small follicles in there but they don't measure them as they are a bit small, but he also said I could still get eggs out of those, its just that those small ones are less likely to make a baby. When I got my call back this afternoon from the clinic I was told  I am scheduled for another scan and blood test on Sunday at 9.00am, and from there I should get my egg collection date! cant wait!

This IVF seems to be dragging out, I keep saying we are on the home stretch and then we have yet another scan, but all this is good, all this steady movement is what we want to see. The eggs are still cooking and that's fine by me, you will be the first to know when the eggs are fried and done and there is a nice healthy bun in the oven.


  1. Glad to hear things are going well! Hope you get some good rest.

  2. Slow and steady movement is still perfect! This is exactly what you need! So glad to hear everything is progressing so well. Keep it up!

  3. this is great news! You are almost there!! home stretch!!! I know..those last days with follicles growing are so uncomfortable. I was very grumpy.
    Grow follies grow!!!

  4. Slow and steady wins the race!! Great news :)

  5. one foot in front of the other, hoping for smooth sailing for you and a BFP

  6. You're awesome. You might not feel awesome, but you are, and I love you xoxoxoxox
