Day 10 ultrasound

The results are in for this cycle...Month 20, Cycle 17, Day 10

Uterine Endometrium Lining: 8.7-9.4mm (supposed to be greater than 7mm)
Right ovary: 4 follicles: 14.5mm, 13.5mm, 7.5mm & 7.5mm
Left ovary: 5 follicles: 17.5mm, 16mm, 14.5mm, 14mm, & 8.5mm

Yeahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I only need 1 or 2 mature follicles for a go ahead to give the trigger hCG shot. A mature follicle is 18mm or greater. Since none of mine are completely ready, but because I have NINE follicles, more than I ever had, the doctors will review my results and the result of my estrogen test and let me know this afternoon what to do. The ultrasound tech, Francie, the follicle fairy :) told me that I will likely have to give myself another FSH injection tonight, and begin intercourse, and then come in tomorrow morning for a followup ultrasound and see where we stand. I have an appointment scheduled at 9am 2-1-11.

I am feeling much more optimistic as last month there were only 4 follies total with 2 barely mature. Thank you to those of you who contacted me about my last post. I appreciate all of your thoughts. It is good to know that I have you all on my side. :~)

Father, thank you so much for technology and knowledge, without which I would be considered barren and dried up. I pray that you give wisdom to my doctors, life to my womb and love to those who are reading this. I pray that you continue to bless me so that I can be a blessing to others. I care about your people and thank you for the opportunity to minister to them. It is in you that I find my hope and strength and I am so very thankful that you are who you are. I pray for my pregnant friends to have long healthy pregnancies with successful births. I pray for my infertile friends to become pregnant quickly and see the pure miracle of life that you created. I pray for my followers on this blog to be a witness and testimony of what you are doing in my life that they may also recognize what you are doing in theirs. I pray for your will above all else. In Jesus' name, AMEN!
