Not long after I finished my Cl.omid pills last week, I started to feel something. Twinges, pressure and discomfort emanating from the area of my right ovary. The feeling is like an annoying eye twitch, always there and driving you crazy but you know if you could just stop thinking about it, it wouldn't bother you as much. I hoped it was a sign that the meds were working, that something was cooking and all I could do was cross my fingers that it wasn't another cyst. Today I got a peak inside to see what we are working with.
Lefty who has previously been my follicle producing champ showing up each round has decided to take a breather this month and let Righty take care of thing. And what did Righty decide to do when the ball was passed off to her? She gave us one follicle, but oh what a follicle it is. Big, bright and ready to burst at 27mm. For comparison, previous cycles yielded nothing over 20mm at this same point. It's no wonder my right ovary has felt uncomfortable for several days now, she's been hard at work and hopefully giving us something great to work with.
Like last cycle it's only one but I'm not as bothered by it this time. First off it's a big sucker and my nurse was thrilled with it. Secondly with each medicated cycle they've grown bigger quicker. Lastly I take a bit of comfort in knowing that this low dose of meds is getting my body to respond like a natural cycle, one mature follicle from alternating ovaries so I won't burn out on eggs.
So tonight we give mega follie its eviction notice to push it out the door where millions of potential suitors are hoping to be selected for the cellular mambo. I'm feeling good about our chances and can't wait to get this load of my ovary, she's been working hard and I think we both could use a break from the pressure. Two week wait here we come.
