I'm glad we ran around (or drove around) during the last couple of days and did the touristy sightseeing stuff around here. I was able to keep up with the exertion. But I think that's done - no more running around for me for a few days.  Today, I'm feeling the watermelons that have replaced my ovaries! Goodness!! Bye Bye jeans, hello sweat pants! 

Also, the good weather that we were having is gone. It's snowing today, and cowardly me doesn't have it in me to venture out and brave it! 

Follicle factory doing well - things are progressing as planned. My e2 yesterday was at 1138, and today's level is at 1800-something (I forget the actual number) {That's my E2 level, not a 1-800 number for 'something'} 

If you're interested, here is today's follicle picture:



Now for the not so good part. I'm feeling a little nauseous and queasy today. The nurse also cautioned me about OHSS, because I seem to have a big bunch of follicles that are growing in there. She said however, that my E2 levels were good, so I will probably be alright. So I'm keeping myself hydrated, and am trying to eat well as well. (By the way, I had my physical yesterday to prepare for ER, and they found my iron level to be slightly low, and want me to eat iron rich foods)

I hope I don't hyperstimulate - that won't be fun. 

(I think my posts in the past couple of weeks have been so boring. So "journal entry" type and report like. I'm not feeling very creative these days, and really, a large part of the intention right now IS just that - to have a journal of the progress of this cycle. So I apologize if you're getting bored reading, I promise to think of some interesting things to talk about soon!)
