Small cycle update: I went in for my cd12 ultrasound yesterday, and my right ovary has grown a lovely 24 mm follicle. A few other 10 mm guys floating around, but none big enough to catch up. I triggered last night, we got in some insurance, and the IUI is tomorrow morning.
I am secretly kind of excited about an early weekend morning IUI, as there is this neat looking restaurant right next to my clinic, which I walk by every time I am there. I have, several times, envisioned Pea and I having brunch there, waiting for the interim time between his contribution and my reception (this is what my clinic calls it, which cracks me up. I think of them as drop-off and high-tech-turkey-basting). We’ve always been balancing the IUI with a work day, with Pea catching a bus from the clinic to work, and me arriving later having worked for a time at home. So we’re going to do brunch! And it might feel like we’re both actually around for this potential conception event, which is nice.
I’d rather I had more eggs, or that my opk had darkened up last night pre-trigger, but that egg is ready to go, and this means the IUI timing will be a perfect 36 hours post-trigger again, so I am content.
A funny before I go: Pea and I were chatting last night about how he hadn’t made the bed while I was away at a retreat this week, and how we are both better at being responsible humans when the other is around. The conversation took some twists and turns, as we were both in a silly mood, and at the end of it our projected future life entailed us owning a bowling alley with a castle facade that was only open in the mornings and subsequently was filing for bankruptcy. A rosy future!
