Rather than flooding the board with multiple posts about my cycle, considering its not your usual TTCAM, I will just have this thread and update here as needed.

I had my first u/s today. The call-back nurse said to take my last BCP tonight and let AF arrive this weekend (should be brief since she said my lining was expectedly thin). I will start stimming on Monday: 175IU Follistim

Wanna see some IVF bloat? Keep in mind I was a dancer, exerciser, and my flat belly has been my best feature...until now! :smileyvery-happy:

This is SO TOTALLY WORTH IT! Chouli, you are going to do great. Just like I was told about labor and childbirth, once it's over and done with, you are going to completely forget about the pain and you will only focus on the fantastic things. :)

This morning I was so ripe that the discomfort was really pain. I was happy to get to the clinic at 7:30am and happy to get going just to get some relief. When I woke up my husband told me that they were unable to "reach" my left ovary at all. All those follicles wasted. :smileysad: I cried almost inconsolably.

I get what you are saying about "wasting" those from your left ovary, but wow 19 from your right! And, yes that's a lot more than 2. I like the positive aspect that your RE said about leaving those from your left ovary behind. ((HUGS)) brave woman, and I hope the pain subsides soon. Positive thoughts your way. :smileyhappy:

Thank you, so much, Lydia. :smileyhappy:

DH was able to watch the whole thing on the TV. He even brought the camera and recorded a 5 minute video of it to show me. Very cool seeing those big black follies being slowly drained.

Way cool! I am drooling at how cool it is to have a video and that DH was able to watch the procedure on TV!!!!!! DH gets major points in my book for thinking to record it. Ha, or totally you if it was your thought!

Chouli- I'm glad that you are to a point now where you will be feeling a little better. Very cool of DH to record it for you, and I would be ecstatic at 19 eggies! GL and hope you feel better soon.
