Just another day in Lubbock

I went back to Lubbock today for more routine bloodwork and an ultrasound. Usually, this consists of a 2 1/2 hrs. trip there for a 5 min. office visit and then, of course, another 2 1/2 hrs. back. But today, the office visit took a little bit longer. At this point in our cycle, the meds are working just as they should be and it took all of about 40 minutes today to measure each and every follicle that are sprouting appropriately. I have about 8 (follicles or egg sacs) on the right side with the biggest measuring at 12.9 mm and 5 on the left side with the biggest measuring at 11.5 mm. Our magic number is > 18 mm of most of the egg sacs before they will retrieve or remove them from my ovaries. The doc says that they grow approx. 2 mm a day. So, hopefully, the retreival will happen the middle of next week. Next on the agenda is more measuring and bloodwork on Sunday. Will is going this time. Yea! Until then, more yucky hormone shots in the tummy!
