The getaway weekend is over. Sigh. Though it was a nice break from routine, I can't say I got very far away from IF. I just can't put it out of my mind for more than 10 minutes at a stretch. Literally.

The BIOALE was grand, there was singing (not by me) and dancing (plenty by me), we laughed, we cried, we sang kumbaya around a bonfire. I went to bed in the small hours of the morning, and now I'm going to be tired and grumpy all week.

For those of you curious to know about those recreational activities we were going to enjoy with reckless abandon, we did, only without the recklesness. I had to call my dr. for the blood results on Friday evening anyway, so I asked him if we needed to be careful. "No" was the answer.

Fast forward to today's u/s:
RO: 19 mm, others dwindling
LO: lone follicle still shrinking

This morning the dr. was optimistic I could trigger soon, but my blood results must have indicated otherwise. I'm to keep stimming and go back for an u/s on Wednesday. Another two days should allow the dominant follicle to grow to 23mm. That would be the size I had the last two times.

Which reminds me, I need to go take my meds. ;-)

Sorry, Lut. It totally sucks when those dang follicles will not do as expected. Hang in there but at least you had some fun at the BIOALE.

Glad to hear you laughed, cried and sang kumbaya (go on, admit it, you did, didn't you?). Even with IF never far from mind, you deserved a break.

Go little follie, go!

A ten minute mental break is better than nothing! Take 'em where you can get 'em.

Glad you had a good time and I'm hoping things go well for you today.
