Great Day

CD10 and all is well. I went back for an US scan with my favorite nurse. My left had some small follies around 12. Then surprise, my right had the dominant one this month at 15. I was surprised bc that one does not usually take charge since it is over crowded with an endometrioma. She said there is a sliver of my ovary left and it is working this month. I am so happy that things are growing. I go back in a few days. Hopefully it will be mature by Friday.

I have just finished a 10 day course of antibiotics. UGH I forgot what they do to you. Glad that is over. I started my shots. Lovenox is really hard to do. The needle is large so it hurts going in. Then is stings later. I have been icing it before and after. This makes it  bearable, but the bruise that is left over still hurts for a few days after.

I was contacted by an author of  an infertility book for Catholics. They are going to do a guest post on my blog during infertility awareness week to launch their book. They are also giving me a copy of the book to give away to one of my readers. This will be my first blog give away. I am so excited to be involved. Make sure to check back that week for details.

 Two more days until Easter vacation from school. I gave up chocolate for lent and it has been really hard. I have lost weight, but I really miss my chocolate.


  1. Such great news!! I don't know if you ever read my story (and now my blog is down) but my right ovary is my lucky one!! I'm trying to remember what helped me with shots besides the ice. I think I just got good at them after a while and they didn't hurt and believe it or not the lovenox needles are thin compared to the generic lovenox needles- ouch! I'm chubby so I had a lot of rolls to pinch which is the only bonus I can think of to being chubby.

    I am glad your blog is being highlighted. I have sent more than a few people to your blog for information.

  2. Oh, I think I know what book you are talking about - I just ordered it after a webinar by the authors!

    Prayers that your shots are less painful!

  3. Hi! I haven't read much of your blog, but had to post as I was thinking "this is me!!" (just on the other side of the world!)

    I just started a tumblr blog infertilityandme about my journey without ivf, my lufs, endo etc.

    I found your blog searching for neupogen for fertility as that might be my next step. Good luck.


Thank you for stopping by. I love getting comments. You may also send me a private message if needed. I had to turn the word verification back on due to way too much spam.
