Round Two....

So this morning I got poked and prodded again...and it wasn't by my husband! Today was my CD 3 ultrasound and blood work. I got to the office and was pleasantly surprised by the abundance of open seats. Either the economy is bad and the office can no longer afford to hire actors to fill the seats in the morning, or everyone got pregnant on the last cycle except for me and the other poor schmoes. I was called fast for my blood work (as usual)......and you know how that goes......

....another day....another blood work test...another bruise!

But seriously, what the hell is up with them bruising me EVERY time I get blood work taken? I have bad veins (I have a serious hatred for needles and my veins hide each time I have to have blood work taken). So I figured out a pattern of rotation for them so that I do not have to have bruises in the same places all the time. I currently have one on my right arm ...so today we took from my right hand...that bruise is lovely! I guess I would much rather deal with a bruise than have them on a fishing expedition in my arm trying to find a vein......

I also (believe it or not) was called back REALLY fast to the ultrasound. (Side note...CD 3 ULTRASOUND...EWWW). However, I waited for what seemed like forever in the room for the doctor......I really thought they forgot about me....maybe if I wasn't wearing just a sheet of crepe paper for pants I would have went out to remind them......

I had a new doctor this time....Dr. Nice Guy (I'm assuming from his name you can tell how I feel about him). There was a HUGE sigh of relief that it wasn't Dr. "I-don't -know-what-the-hell-just-happened". There are 10 small follicles on the right...he goes to the left (which by the way does anyone else want to kick the doctor when they look at the left ovary.....I hate the pressure!)...there are two...one is small and one is measuring 11mm. Now 11 mm was what I had at day 14 last month so here I am thinking I have the fastest growing follicle ever ....I'm definitely thinking I am ahead of the game and that my follicle will be a future rocket scientist.

So I asked the Twitter gals this morning about the size and it was mentioned that it could be a cyst (which totally makes sense because of my polycystic ovaries) ...and that when my estrogen came back, they would be able to tell......

Nurse BFF is unfortunately on vacation until Wednesday ( UM HELLO....I NEED YOU HERE!!!) ...so a different nurse on Dr. Godfather's team called. She called 45 MINUTES after I got home!!!!! Told me everything looked great and to go ahead and start the clomid. I asked about the 11mm follicle being a cyst and she said AND I QUOTE (JUST IN CASE I HAVE TO SUE) "Nope. Everything looks great". Now the logistics of them having my blood work back in 45 minutes is slim to none...so I'm thinking she didn't even check my blood work and LIED TO ME (that bitch!).

But anyway..I guess it really doesn't matter what it is...I still do the clomid tonight and we still move forward.

Please be my month!!!

I've had some follicles around that same size on CD3 so I think it's a good sign b/c mine weren't cysts. I really hope that this is your month!

I am so with you on the hiding veins! I so hate bloodwork.

My fingers and toes are crossed that this is your month so you don't have to endure much more!

As for the follicle/cyst - I'm not sure - but it is possible to have a follicle that size around this time, so I'm hoping that's what it is!

Good luck!!

Unfortunately i cannot sympathize on the vein thing... i am translucent - no really i am, you can see my veins.. so blood work is always quick and easy.. lucky me?!
