I didn't (and won't) ovulate on my own!!!

I didn't sleep last night, scared to death that we were going to miss our chance this month.

Then, in typical Heidi fashion, we were late for our appointment. Sigh. Thankfully they love us there and were perfectly okay with us being late.

The ultrasound showed two perfect follicles on my right ovary, and lots of smaller follicles on both sides.

So they did bloodwork and we waited around for ever and ever and ever for the results. Moral of the story is that my LH (Lutenizing(sp?) Hormone--that which tells you to ovulate) was only 6.2, they would like to see it higher than 16. Jenn will be giving me the trigger shot tonight at 8pm, and then we will head back to the re's office for the IUI Sunday morning at 8am.

Phfew, we didn't miss it, and apparently I need to learn not to freak that we will miss it cause my body isn't going to ovulate on its own!! (note to self, keep this post handy for next month when I start the freaking out process all over again. Jenn says we won't have to do this freaking out all over again cause we'll be pregnant, I sure hope she is right.)

OMG you sound like me. I'm totally paranoid... and constantly running late. Now I usually get places on time huffing and puffing. But when I have an appointment I'm also panicking that they will either cancel it or tell me I have to wait 4 hours until they can squeeze me in.
