CD14. Ultrasound on Monday showed 3 follicles on my right ovary (yay!) and a couple of very small ones on my left. The ones on my right ovary were around 11mm, which Dr. L felt was a little small. A second ultrasound 2 days later (today) showed that they hadn’t grown any. Boo. Dr. L mentioned to me Monday that it boggles his mind how inconsistent I am. Great numbers one month, absolutey nothing the next. Bad numbers another month, but then I end up ovulating, presumably late. He said I may just ovulate late this cycle, so it’s basically a wait and see situation. I guess I’ll get some OPK’s and test the rest of this week just to see. He’s out today and the rest of the week, so the ultrasound tech said she’d leave my scans for him and have him call me on Monday to see where to go from there.
When I saw him this week, he mentioned doing some lab work if I don’t ovulate this cycle to rule out premature ovary failure, since, like I said before, I’m so inconsistent. I haven’t done much research on it (purposefully) because I don’t want to freak myself out unless I have to. But let’s just all please cross our fingers that this is not the case. I have enough stacked against me as it is!
Good news is my appointment with the RE has been moved up to December 17! I had to move it because my boss was being a bitch and wouldn’t let me take off on the 2nd, but at least I’m getting in quicker. I’m ready. I just hope boss lady understands that when this process starts, there’s no rescheduling appointments. I go when I have to go. I thought she understood this. We had a very long conversation about this over a month ago and she said she supported me and would work with me on it. We’ll see how that goes.
Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I haven’t been doing the 30 days of thanksful thing, but let me just say… I hate that any of us have to go through it, but I’m so thankful for a community of women who know and understand exactly what I’m going through. ❤
