I’m Foliculating!

Foliculating: (verb) To create folicles in one’s ovaries as a result of folicle stimulating hormones. (Note: I don’t think this is a real word. BUT, I heard a girl say it with pride at my support group meeting on Tuesday and thought it was a perfect word!)

I knew yesterday was going to be a good day. I woke up with a positive attitude and was really excited to head to the RE to see how I was responding to my drugs. I got out of the house on time and there was one last diet coke for the ride after I had thought we were all out. Things were going great. And what did the u/s reveal?! FIVE follies!!! Woohoo!!!! I’m foliculating! I have two folies on my left side and three on my right. They are, of course, not mature yet. But, the nurse was happy with the progress. We are still on target for a mid to late- next week IUI. So, in less than a week I should be knocked up!

I asked the nurse about antibiotics around the time of the IUI. I’ve heard that in some cases, antibiotics can prevent miscarriage so I wanted to ask. She was going to check with the RE to see what type of protocal he wants to use. So I guess I’ll find that out, as well as when I’ll do the intralipid therapy, on Monday. I’m ready to get this thing going!!!

Sorry for the short update. I’m off to take my shots! I’ll give you all the folie update on Monday!
