Delayed report, takes a while to catch up after missing 3 days!

Friday morning I had an ultrasound, part of the prep work for my next IVF cycle. Was it ever nice to see a 'normal' uterus and ovaries. This was the first scan I've had since having my last tube removed. No huge cysts, no scar tissue (fingers remaining crossed) ovaries where they should be, uterus un-squished.

The interesting and frustrating bit came when she scanned my ovaries - tonnes of follicles! I counted 4 big ones, and the tech even commented on them. Interesting because I'm not on any FSH, frustrating because a) they aren't doing me any good and b) I want to be doing my cycle now and not wait until October.

The other pleasant part of the visit was absolutely no waiting time! I walked to reception, they told me to have a seat, butt touched chair and they were calling my name. I was in and out of the hospital in under 1/2 hour. That's gotta be a record.

Next up, the blood-sugar tests. I just have to find 2.5 hours during work hours to take that sucker.

EDIT: HAHA! I just realized my 'music' selection was ticking clocks - how appropriate!
Who does she think she is?

It sounds like you are doing better. Maybe this time you will get a nice healthy baby :)

You're very welcome. I kind of know how you feel. I would LOVE to have a baby but I can't even get a date for Saturday night, so that kind of knocks that out.

I will continue to keep sending good vibes your way Hon.

I'm glad all is going well for you. :) I don't know much about IVF, although I've learned more from your posts. I am glad everything is in order, and I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Thanks very much. Hope you aren't getting too much of the grumpy, bitchy view of IVF ;)

I forgot to add that I'm 34 and would like nothing more than to have a baby but I don't think it's in the cards for me. I am pulling for you Hon.

It helps to have a hubby if you want a baby, and I can't even get a date for Saturday night.

There are soo many days when I feel that way. I often wonder why I'm spending all this money and time and putting myself through this (hmm - not having one of my most positive days)

This is our last kick at this can, we will probably look more seriously at adoption if this doesn't work for us. I appreciate your good thoughts - I'm sending back some awesome guy and hottie too attraction thoughts.

My parents adopted three boys thru International adoption. If you scroll down in my journal kind of a ways, you can see them because I have a pic of them, my sister, and me in there.

They got them when the boys were all babies, and now they're grown men.

I've thought about adoption too, but I just don't have the energy or strength to do it alone. I want a husband before I have a child.

Good luck with your tests! Wow, I don't think I've ever had an experience like that, unless of course I was late for an apt.!;)

I know! I was rather in shock when I left.
