Ultrasound is over, now waiting on the doc appointment to see next steps. I was at 1.85 today, which means I’m growing about 1 mm a day. Tomorrow would be 1.9…so I’m guessing trigger shot tomorrow and IUI Friday. I should know soonish….whenever I can see the doctor…
As I was watching the ultrasound tech type up the notes on me this afternoon, I noticed she said that I had a “retroverted uterus.” WTF
I was really nervous when I read that, as I have a friend who told me she has a ’tilted’ uterus and that it caused her several issues, so I asked Sarah what it means/why she put that/etc. She said that in most women, when they stand up their uterus leans slightly forward. In my case, my uterus leans towards my back. She said about 20% of women have this and that it in no way causes or affects infertility. It can affect childbirth, but that’s not the norm. I’m going to have to research this when I get out of here. Weird that it hasn’t been mentioned before, right?
I can already see that I’m not going to be very productive this afternoon
if when I go back to the office. My mind is elsewhere.
Ok- saw the doctor. Here’s the scoop- I am at 1.85 today, which is right on track per the ‘norm’ for how much you grow daily. Doc expects me to be at 2 by sometime tomorrow. I am suppose to give myself the trigger shot tomorrow (10am was his suggestion…I hope I can make myself give it to myself!) and then we go to the doc on Friday afternoon for the deposit/IUI. Dr. P went on and on about what a beautiful follicle I had…very plump and round. You know…like your mom. LOL..kidding…had to. But really, he said at LEAST 3 times how beautiful it was. =) Fingers crossed!
