Cycle Update

Sorry I haven't updated in a while.... there really hasn't been much to tell! I'm currently on cd11, I took 2 doses of Femara every night cd4-8, and I go in tomorrow for my ultrasound and blood work to see how my body is responding. I think it is responding well, because I have had some twinges on my right side which I am hoping indicates some super follicle-growing action. I'd really like to go in tomorrow and find out that I've got 2 nice size follicles almost ready to go. My goal for when I trigger (take the shot to force ovulation) is to have 2 definite follicles that will ovulate. If there is another one that might go with them, that's cool too. I'm not so sure I want three big honkin' follicles though..... I'm terrified of having triplets! I know, even if I ovulate three follicles, chances are I still won't get triplets, but the odds are definitely better with three or more follicles. So...... let's just all keep our fingers crossed for two big juicy follicles, okay? None of this "oh, that second one might make it, you never know". I want two definite good follicles so my chances are better this cycle. The way things are looking with my husbands job, we can't count on being able to do another cycle so I really really need this one to work!

By the way, if things go along the same time-frame as last cycle, I'll probably go back on Monday for another ultrasound, then trigger either Monday or Tuesday night, with an IUI 36 hours after the trigger shot.
