Working Again?

Thursday night Partner was so tired, she fell asleep by about 9:30.

Last night she struggled up the stairs about 6:30 and fell into bed. I went out with friends A and B to a local watering hole. When I came home at 12:30, she was dead to the world sleeping.

This morning we went for another ultrasound. We have to go back tomorrow. There is, at this point, at least one follicle 19mm. I kid you not. There are four others that are around 12mm. That's only the left ovary, which was the ovary without as many follicles. We couldn't find the right ovary, which is why we are returning tomorrow. The nurse wants the doctor to look.

Partner's E2 is 860.

Our working theory now is that she has been so tired because her little ovaries are working overtime. She can sleep all day if she wants.

What a bloody rollercoaster this is. This morning I was crying again, but this time because signs are more hopeful.

We might be back on again. I'll know more tomorrow. Thanks for the good thoughts, and if you keep sending the white light and growth thoughts, I know we'd appreciate it.

WHOO-HOO!!! Go follicles! Go follicles! Maybe Partner is like a bear and must hibernate while producing offspring? This is so exciting--you guys really deserve for this to work out and I've been watching for updates like a person with NO life (which, not teaching this semester to be at home with three children under five, I pretty much am). Keep 'em coming!

Great news! Now go wait on partner and be extra nice and lovey. That way you can remind her of how nice you were when she must wait on you as you are growing the babe. :)

Those darned fickle folicles!!!! I'm glad they're progressing nicely. Don't worry about the elusive right ovary. My left one use to do that all the time. Sometimes it wouldn't even produce. I would tell the doctors it thought it was on vacation. ; p

I'm glad your lining is swell : ) I'll check in again tomorrow - keep us posted. And don't worry about the bruises - they eventually go away.

Go team go! I hope this works for y'all. Have a great weekend!

Wow - to go from not even 12 to 19 in one day - that seems almost impossible. No wonder Partner is tired! SO glad things are looking up. Will definitely keep on crossing things for you.

Damn fickle follicles, indeed! Here's hoping they become fertilizing follicles real quick like!

Thinking of you both...
