First Follicle Check

Well I woke up this morning to a temp increase – only about half a degree, but enough to trick me into thinking I may be ovulating. I haven’t had any O pains, so I’m thinking it may be a fluke.

We went in for our first follie check today. They found two follicles, both on my left side. Both measuring about 12 – 13 mm. I was bummed because these are small. She wants to check me again on Wednesday to see if they’ve grown any larger. She prefers 18 mm before she prescribes the HCG trigger shot.

I told her my hesitations with using the HCG trigger and she basically laughed in my face and said that was silly considering my history of long and annovulatory cycles. [My RANT] I realize these doctors want to get their patients PG quick, easy, and painless, but GEEZ, I hate pumping my body full of foreign (foreign to me) matter. It was hard enough to agree to taking the Clomid. [RANT over]

So here I am, dreaming of mixing unknown liquids and injecting them into my body…. man, I’m one lucky woman.

  1. I'm with you...I understand that Drs. want to get us PG right away but come on!, Let us do it on our terms...jeez. I think it's great your hesitant about injecting your body with foreign liquids.

    Good luck with your Dr. appointment tomorrow!
