My sister did not even show up so I was worried for nothing. My grandmother was so happy to see me. She lives 4 hours away and I had not seen her in two years. Man, time flies when you are consumed by Dr apts. It was nice to see my family. I also bought a new spring dress and got a lot of compliments on it. It made me feel so good. When you spend all of your money on IF while saving money for adoption, you do not get to splurge on luxuries that often. I saw a nice colorful spring dress, well actually four on sale and I had to have them. So I got all four and wore the most colorful one to the party. I also painted my nails. Woohoo. I can't remember the last time I did that. It was nice to have time to just play dress up and enjoy my dh. My grandmother turned 96. She is in good health. She still lives at home and sometimes takes the bus to Macy's. She has some back pain etc, but overall for her age she is doing well. I think she is getting lonely. She said she wanted her DH to come back for her birthday wish. It was sad to hear her speak about missing him. It made me appreciate my DH.
Back to TTC news:CD 11: Today I had a faint +opk. So I knew I was getting close. I went in for US and BW. This was my first month taking femara so I did not know what to expect. The follicle was 27mm. Whoa. This was the largest pre-trigger follicle I had seen, so I am hoping that it is a very mature, happy, follicle. My lining was great. I was happy to hear that bc it was so early in my cycle. I went home and took my lupron trigger. My bloodwork was interesting. My estrogen was 383 which makes sense with the size of the follicle. My LH was 41.52 OH YEAH BABY. This is great. I am very surprised bc the OPK was faint today. I usually do not get that high of a number on my own. So I am glad that I took my trigger when I got home bc I am surging..... My progesterone was 1.2 so I am getting ready to pop!!! I go back tomorrow for BW to see my LH/progesterone level. My CM has been not so great this month. I am not sure if it is a side effect of the medicine or just all the stress I was under due to visiting my family. Hopefully that does not mess things up. I am taking lots of mucinex today and trying to get lots of water. As a back up I have preseed.
I wore my pig socks today. Maybe I will upload a photo later. There is still time to sign up for the sock swap if you have not already. Here is a link to the information. Here is a link to sign up
