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!
