Today's ultrasound showed three large follicles, all on my left ovary. 17mm, 18mm, and 20mm in size. There were 2 above average on the right follicle (12.5mm and 14mm) and then a half dozen 10mm ones on the left side. Dr. Lee seemed pretty confident that even if the 14mm one ovulates, there is so tiny of a chance that a mature egg would be released that fertilization is very unlikely. The other three, on the other hand, are good size follicles and should contain a mature egg. The eggs that fertilized and became our twins were less than 20mm...
I just received the call that my LH didn't spike. It was elevated to 7.5 yesterday and Dr. Lee thought that I might surge today. But no: 8. It went nowhere. So, in 90 minutes, I'll inject the Ovidrel pen. We are back to her office bright and early Saturday morning.
This means I wont be able to lead the Rosary on Saturday. We wont even be able to make Mass, since we have to be up there at 9am, and Mass is at 8:30am. :( Sadness. I missed this morning because I woke up with my stomach feeling like something I ate didnt agree with me. I hate missing daily Mass. It has such an impact on my day. Sadness... I've asked a friend to lead the Rosary and hopefully she can. If not, I'll ask someone else. I really dont want to cancel it. Of the nearly 30 who attend Saturday morning, last week we ended up with a dozen staying to pray! Always a nice thing! Fingers crossed that PC will be able to help me out!
So, that's where I am today. This weekend is "IT". We are nervous. I am nostalgic, as I remember how similar to Nick and Sophie this cycle is.
I have a meeting for work tonight. Not excited. I just want to be in my husband's arms.
Wish us luck!
