So, this doctor... WAY AWESOME!!! I think I love him, lol. Anyway, there is not any mature follicles. I asked if he could tell if I had already ovulated he said no, once the follicle releases the egg it shrinks back down and then becomes the corpus luetem, and you can't tell if you've O'd by u/s. He remembered me from the hospital and asked lots of questions about the pregnancy and my history and all kinds of stuff. He said he is NOT convinced that I have that other condition they found last time, then asked about our past fertility work up. He was going to order that dye test, but I've already had one, he said then he's fairly certain I don't have it cuz they would've seen it then. YAY! He asked if I used opk's or did bbt's I told him yes for both and told about the weekend O stuff. He said he would believe I O'd Saturday or Sunday. We talked about my stuff for like an hour and he never even looked at his watch! Way cool! He's testing again, hasn't been done in years, my tsh lh fsh and prolactin. AND remember I'm totally outta pocket, he only charged me $27 for the entire appointment and included all those tests! Frickin A!!!

Then, he said if I'm not pg this cycle, he's gonna save me money for the next and gave me the prescription for next cycle for provera and clomid just in case and said I would be fine to do one on my own, since I was pretty in tune. He said If next cycle doesn't work either then he'll add glucophage for the following cycle. But I'm just gonna keep my FX that this cycle works.

Wow Torie you lucked out by getting a great doctor, It must have been a great relieve to have a appointment where the doctor actually reconized that they were dealing with a person and not a case number.
