If you leave me in an exam room with the graph of my follicles up on the computer screen, you better believe I’ll take a picture of it: (blue is Right ovary, orange is Left. Size is in mm on the y axis, date on the x axis).
Mistake though, since I definitely then obsessed over it for a while, as my ovaries continue to be slightly pokey. Is my right ovary stalling out? Why do they have drugs entered up until Saturday if the trigger is meant to be Thursday? Are my follicles all too small? Are they getting tired from all the stimming? I am getting tired from all the stimming, so that would be fair.
Seriously, there was no universe where I wasn’t going to take that picture, but there was also no universe where having this picture is a good thing for me. Except that I find the cheery little blips much more adorable than the monster black caves of follicles on the ultrasound images. Seriously, life springs from black holes of doom in our abdomens.
I’m going back to work now.
