TMI ahead!


My appointment today yielded a wealth of interesting developments. On top of a urinary tract infection and some type of Bacterial Vaginosis... I also have SIX FOLLICLES! Six!! 4 on the left (which explains the pain I've been having) and 2 on the right. Go me!!

The doctor was astounded. He told me that he was totally amazed by my reaction to the Femara and that if I have ever had a great chance of getting pregnant in my life - it was this month.

I have an appointment for IUI in the morning.

We also had an extensive and serious conversation about selective termination were I to end up with more than twins. It was an interesting conversation and gave me a lot of food for thought. He said that some couples won't even consider any type of selective termination but that he counseled against carrying more than 2 babies. He also said that it was unlikely considering that I've had 2-4 eggs in the past and haven't gotten pregnant but he wanted to talk about it none the less.

Tomorrow IUI! Plus getting started on two different medications to clear up the other issues. Sigh.

Honestly, I'm thrilled and excited.
