IVF #2 Grab 'n Stab: Day 7

Oy, am I feeling bloated tonight or what?

I'm feeling sore, huge, a little gross. I remember having a similar feeling from last time around - feeling like I need to pee all the time, and feeling a lot of pressure afterwards. I hope this means that my ovaries are responding well.

I had my first blood draw this morning, with a great lab technician! My left arm has never had any good veins, so we're stuck with just the right to use - and it's a deep vein. Thankfully, she nailed it in one. My clinic isn't the kind to ring constantly for chats; their motto is that no news is good news.

Since I didn't get any calls this afternoon, I'm just going on ahead as per the original schedule. We'll know more how things are looking at Friday morning's ultrasound. If you've got a few spare good thoughts, keep your fingers crossed for some big, healthy follicles for me!

Hope all that pressure and uncomfortableness means you're getting lots of healthy mature follies in there. Fingers crossed!

I definitely take this as a good sign! I felt the same toward the end before my retrieval, it does mean that your ovaries are enlarged and pushing up on your bladder, which most likely means, lots of ripe follies, ready for the picking! Sorry you're uncomfortable though. I so feel you, that has been me for the past week +. It does get better though!

Thinking of you and your follies... grow follies grow :) My Clinic seems to have the same "no news is good news policy"... frustrating at times :( But always a relief not to get a phone call ! xoxo

Of course I've got some spare thoughts for you.....grow you little eggs.
Keep your hands and toes warm. I hope you have gloves to wear during playground duty.

Your "grab and stab" title cracks me up. Best of luck this cycle!

I laughed so hard reading the title of your blog. "grab n stab" about sums it up. Keep growing follies!
