3 at 17

So I may have over estimated the number of eggs the doctor looks for. I had bloodwork and ultrasound yet again yesterday morning. The ultrasound tech did inform me that I had 3 follicles/eggs on my left side over 10cc and three on my right side over 10cc. Apparently this is the size that they look for to count whether or not the egg is viable. Later in the day when the nurse phoned, she did inform me of some great details. They will be monitoring me this week to see when I have three eggs over 17cc. At that point, that is when they schedule the egg retrieval.

As of right now, I have the following:
Left side: 1 @ 17, 1 @ 13, 1 @ 11, 3 under 10
Right side: 1 @ 13, 1 @ 11, 1 @ 10, 4? under 10

Needless to say, my body is responding to the Gonal F just fine. I am however feeling pretty tired and sore. My lower abdomen feels swollen and has a lot of pressure. This is obviously caused by the numerous eggs protruding out of my ovaries. (It is to the point that it is uncomfortable to sit in my favorite jeans. Not a feeling I was hoping for this early in the game.) I did however make it to a heated yoga class last night. Probably wasn't the best idea seeing as the swelling I have and the continued pain in my shoulder from that stupid tetanus shot. I do feel better this morning because of it though. I will need to start researching whether or not it is safe to continue heated yoga classes while pregnant. We shall see.

As for now, I am returning to the doctors tomorrow morning for follow up bloodwork and ultrasound. Fingers crossed...
