Game on

I had my cycle day 3 ultrasound this morning. No cysts. Left side showed at least 6 antral follicles (potentials), and the right side…  well, my apparently busy bowel obstructed the view of the right. We never did get a look at it, but the nurse said that if I had a cyst there we’d be able to see it. Lessons learned:

1.) Best to eat breakfast so that you can do your business before an u/s

2.) The depths of humiliation to which you can sink at a gyno appointment are bottomless.

I asked the nurse about the birth defect reports with Femara, and she said that the study those reports are based upon was from a very small sample, that they stopped prescribing Femara for a while and started again when new studies were published since that refute the findings– also that the half-life of Femara is so short that it will be out of my system before we could even conceive. It’s a little reassurance at least.

I got a belly shot demo– I think I can do it, even though I’m really not looking forward to it. Took my first dose of Femara today, and I feel fine so far. Follistim starts on Sunday. Another u/s next Saturday. If it looks good, we’ll trigger that night and insem the following Monday morning.

    As if CD3 ultrasounds weren’t embarassing enough to begin with. Maybe that’s just me, but I hate CD2 or 3 u/s’s.

    But I’m glad you had no cysts and game is on.
