Lucky 7

An 8am monitoring appointment on a Saturday with a side of extended vein fishing is cruel and unusual punishment. But hey, they don't give IVF stripes out for free, right? E2 came back at 736 and, after 7 days of stimming, I have 7 measurable follicles (5 on the right, 2 on the left) with another 24 that were less than 10mm. It's not as good a response as I was having last time at this point in the cycle, but apples and oranges and all of that and it only takes one so... yeah. Things are good. All meds stay the same. Next scan/stick is Monday morning.

I wrote a big long post about a story I wanted to share, but once I got it all written out, I lost the nerve to publish it. The abridged version is that due to a bizarre constellation of circumstances, something really cool unfolded for us over the past couple of days and has me feeling really lucky, and humbled, and like even the big ol' universe is pulling for us a bit on this one.
