A batch of 7

In brief: 7 follicles. Good.

Today's U/S showed a batch of 7 follicles. My mind says that is ok, and that I should be pleased.
Pleased isn't how I would describe my feelings.

Greed: I want more.
Relief: there is response!
Anxiety: is it enough to make it to transfer, and dare I hope, for the freezer?
Impatience: faster!

Pleased is what I'd feel if I get to take home a live healthy baby (another, gasp, such greed!).
Scrap that, I'd feel euphoric.

Physically, I'm doing fine. I have a hint of headache now and then (dehydration or the meds?). I feel slightly bloated, but it's somehow reassuring that something is going on in there.

No more worries about timing though, the meeting abroad was cancelled. Yippie.

Linnea is starting to say a few words. Finally, she said Mommy, though sometimes I wonder if she knows what she's saying.
Other words are daddy, car, walk, apple.

7 is a good number, not great, but you know "it only takes one!!" Ha - had to say that even though it irritates the heck out of me.

I understand how you feel - my ovaries were not exactly overperformers either, but at the end of the day all you really want is another baby at home...

Good that the meeting was canceled so you don't have to juggle that on top of the cycle.

Linnea's vocabulary expansion is so exciting, isn't it???

7 = freaking fantastic in my book! I know the ambiguity of being happy and disappointed and all those different emotions at the same time, but seriously 7 is very, very good!

7 is a lucky number . . .

Words! That sounds exciting.

Fingers crossed on the follicle front.

Seven sounds good to me, but I totally know what you mean about wanting more. It's really all about the one baby in the end, though, isn't it? I just hope that you get that part of your dream, regardless of the rest of the details.

Here's the thing ... quality.
7 is great, but it is your first scan, so prolly more.

Headaches - reckon its the synarel.
