Eggs!

I had my appointment today for another ultrasound and this may sound a bit odd - but came away a bit disappointed!

I had an appointment on Monday - had about 4 eggs looking "good".
I had an appointment on Wednesday - had about 3 eggs looking "good."
I've been taking 1 cc of medicine to UP the amount of eggs/make the big eggs BIGGER - and today both the doctor and nurse said "Looks like we'll have 2 good eggs!"

NOW, 2 eggs is great.......but some people naturally produce 2 eggs and here I'm paying quite a bit of money and all I am producing is 2 eggs? All we need is one fertilized.......but still.

The doctor we see is in Bellingham - a very small clinic (Bellingham IVF). The doctor himself is a bit different and the details have to be asked in such a way for him to give more - if that makes sense. We like the sense of "family" it produces - and having gone up there now for over 4 years off/on......we feel comfortable.

If this time around doesn't work - we're going to head down South where maybe they might not be as conservative as this clinic - which is very conservative. (I'm not wanting a Seahawk Team :) but we'd take 1-3.......

So, that's the news. I'm on medicine still until Monday - and will have another ultrasound. I guess my eggs need to be around 20+ (some measurement) LOL and today they were 13/14 - so 3 more days of medicine and we should be good. (Wednesday my eggs were 10 - and they jumped in 2 days to 13/14 - so we're booking it with the medicine).

Also, please feel free to ask any questions and/or want to know more.......I know lots of people are interested in how this all works - it can get a bit confusing with the timing, etc.

Right now it looks like Tuesday is the tentative day of insemination...........so I should know if I'm pregnant right about Non-Corn North!

That's it for now!
