Overall, it was a quick appointment today. They did the necessary bloodwork and sent me for my ultrasound. My cyst was still evident on the screen, but it had shrunk in size to 1.6cm. (Previously, it measured 2.35cm).
Our NP gave me 1200IU of Follistim that had been saved for me since my cancelled cycle in January. We have not been actively TTC since January. Wow! It just occurred to me that it's been that long since we were cycling. I have no idea how I have made it this long. And here goes my crazy lady Lupron rant:
Since January I have definitely received much unwanted and unwarranted advice. I am glad that I chose to make my journey public, but sometimes I wish that people would stop trying to give us advice. Don't get me wrong, I love when people talk to us about overcoming infertility. I met a lady from church last week who introduced me to her twins conceived via IUI. I knew that those two boys were truly a miracle! Lately, people automatically assume that I'm just distraught; or that I need to relax. Surprisingly enough, I think that I've been as relaxed as possible. Yes, I want a baby more than anything. BUT if I have to hear "in God's time" from one more person I may strangle them. =) Did they have to wait for a baby? Did they have to have numerous procedures and timed intercourse? If you have not battled Infertility, don't tell someone that it's all a part of God's plan and that it will happen in His timing. Believe me, I know this, and do NOT need you to tell me! **Rant over! This is probably the Lupron talking... My moods have been swinging!
We also had to hand over payment for the cycle. All I can say is that God provides!
