First Ultrasound

I had my first ultrasound since starting stims! I have 15 follicles! It is less than last time, and Im glad about that. I had 20 with our last cycle and they were poor quality. So I am hoping less is more in this case! I go back again this weekend for another ultrasound, and hopefully to find out when I will get to trigger. I am thinking our ER(egg retrieval) will be on Wed. Yaaaayyyy! I will update after my next ultrasound. It getting here SO fast I cant believe it!

Oh how I missed all these needles

Well, this morning I locked myself in the bathroom, pulled out my vial of lupron and my needle, and then I panicked! I have done this SO many times before, in our previous cycle. No big deal, right? The lupron needles our so small and dont really hurt. But this morning as I stared at this needle that I needed to stab myself with, it didnt seem very little anymore. I needed to hurry, our daughter doesnt know about all of this, and Im sure would be very scared if she saw me standing there with a needle in my stomach! So that is what finally talked me into it. I had to do it soon or I would be caught! SO I did it and it wasnt bad at all. It was just the anticipation. I wish Zack could do them all. He does all my other ones, but hes not there in the morning when I have to take my lupron, he's already at work. :(

I go to my RE on August 20th, so I will know more then! I hope this cycle works out better than the last!
