Things are looking good. We have two follicles measuring at a 5, three measuring at 7 and an 8. An additional nine are small and not measurable at this point, but are expected to step up and deliver. That is a total of 15, my highest number in all four cycles.
A little concerned that the growth might be a little slow. They expect 2mm growth per day. They may jack up my meds. Considering I am 450 F.ollistim and 150 M.enopur already, this is impressive. We are going balls out for eggs. Back to the office on Monday.
A couple follow ups on my Tidbits. I was asked some valid questions I couldn't answer. I asked about it again yesterday at my acupuncture session.
I know I won't do it justice. I get so caught up in my acupuncturist's stories, I let it wash over me and forget to take notes. She weaves these great trips of health, communication and peace - all the while talking about farm stands, go figure.
I confirmed the eat local was a big benefit in her opinion to fertility treatments. She told me the local foods had a stronger life force (italics mine) in them.
I don't know exactly what life force means but it sure sounds like it needs to have a special font. She talked about energy and connection to the earth. It was riveting.
My acupuncturist referenced a book by Barbara Kingsolver, who happens to be one of my favorite authors. (It was published during The Dark Ages, so I totally missed it.) This book captures the benefits of eating local.
I was in some pain a couple days ago. I was sure I could feel my ovary. How awkward. Turns out, er, I had some sluggish bowels. The descending colon passes on your left and gets a little crowded from all the follicles. A little something to file away so you don't worry as I did.
Poop, ladies, remember to poop.
