Follicle Check

We had our follicle check yesterday, and I'm responding well to Femara.  On my left ovary, I had 2 larger follicles at 13mm and 14mm.  I had 7 smaller ones on the right ovary.  They scheduled me to come back in Saturday morning for another ultrasound at 7:30.  I'm hoping that we'll measure 18mm by then (since they should grow 2mm each day).  My lining was only 6mm, but my SIL and the DRs assured me that it will have thickened up by then.  Brandon picked up my trigger shot yesterday and he will administer that to me on Saturday evening. 

We sold our tickets to the Bama game since it's a late kick-off.  Brandon did not feel comfortable at all with having to prepare my shot and give it to me around 80,000+ other people.  =)  We're so excited!  Right now, we're scheduling to do the IUI on Monday morning. 

I talked to Brandon about my idea about the pregnancy journal and he's on board.  We're both going to write a letter to our baby on the day of insemination.  He thought it was a good idea too.  =) 

I can't believe that we've made it this far.  I now have so much respect for women who have to struggle with fertiilty issues and for those who battle this for years.  My sanity has been rattled for the past 1.5 years and that 1.5 years is nothing in comparison to what most women must conquer.
