Insert Foot In Mouth!

Time to come and fess up.

At the appt today, there was one follicle that measured 18mm. So I got my trigger shot and will be inseminated tomorrow. I can't believe I'm here writing this. I thought for sure that this cycle would be a bust.

I feel like a pretty big tool for begging for sympathy yesterday only to have everything work out OK. So to everyone who commented yesterday a big, fat thanks to you. For all of those who were praying and thinking of me a big, fat thanks to you too. Whatever happened it worked. It's not the ideal that they look for (they like to see 2-3 follicles), but I'll take one over none any day. We at least have a chance this cycle. I'll take a small chance over no chance at all.

Thanks again for being wonderful and supportive. I promise I will try to not cry wolf anymore, but it becomes a defense mechanism after a while.

Hope all is well in the IF kingdom.

    All right! That follicle got its act together! Let's hope for some very accurate sperm tomorrow.

    Don't feel bad. I called cancel with my last cycle about five times before it actually was; I'm thrilled that your's is going forward.

    I'm glad you'll be able to go ahead with the IUI after all. Good luck!

    It's great news, don't feel bad about the wolf biz-lordy when you consider the tricks that Hope has played in the past.

    Good luck and good egg!

    I only ever had one follicle on Clomid or injectibles. I am so glad you have made it to IUI. Go follicle!

    Please don't feel bad. This IF is just one way too long, way too scary rollercoaster ride.
    I'm thrilled that your IUI went as scheduled and I will be keeping my fingers crossed for you!
