I can't think of a play on the number 18.

But that's how many measurable follicles I had this morning. Most are in the 15-16mm range or smaller, but there was one 18mm one in the mix. All newly-measured follicles are on my right side - left side tally remains at 4. Guess my left ovary is officially phoning this one in. No trigger shot tonight (yay!) and back tomorrow for another scan/stick. The nurse said she thinks that should be the last one. She didn't mention my E2 number and I didn't think to ask for it until after I hung up. I'm still queasy and tired, and this afternoon, I finally started feeling like my ovaries were reaching a respectable level of discomfort, so more reassurance that things are progressing. And that's the scoop for today!

Thanks so much for all of the support and cheerleading. It really means a lot to me. :-)

18 is a great number. I am not surprised you feel crappy. I only had 12 and I felt awful on my fresh cycle. (PS, what's up with left ovaries, mine has checked out too.)

Crossing everything over here. <3

that's great news! I'm crossing all my bits and pieces for you. I hope the ovarian discomfort doesn't escalate from respectable to excruciating.
