Hey there big fella

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.

  8. Love your term cellular mambo! Your description of every medicated cycle producing better and better results gives me hope as my first round of 50 mg clomid did absolutely nothing- follicles at 11mm. So happy for your mega follicle and hope it lets out a killer egg that all the troops are attracted to! Best of luck!

  9. That's great news!! Crossing my fingers for you this month :) I'm just jealous that you get ultrasounds after your cycles on Clomid to see what your eggs are doing...all they give me is progesterone tests to see IF I ovulated, but I have no idea what size the eggs are growing to. And we don't have any RE's even remotely close to me (200 miles was the closest). The good news is that I've been OFF Clomid for 2 months now, and I'm STILL having a regular period (in fact, this last one was 29 days...the closest I've been to 28 days in YEARS). Still taking a break from Clomid because I think I'm too scared to keep going to the point I have to hear from the doctor that Clomid isn't for me. I don't want to hear that. So I'm back on the "get myself healthy" plan for now, with diet and exercise to try to control my PCOS. Vicious cycle.

    Anyways, your egg sounds like a little "big" champ :) Thoughts for your BFP going out to you!!! Love you.
