Almost there

I'm sick. Like really sick.  The doctor gave a list of medicines that are ok to ingest at this point and I'm currently sucking down some Robitussin.  I'm also covered in a dog pile on the couch.  Literally under a pile of dogs.  My boston terrier and my english mastiff are both keeping me company.  

On to my visit this morning.  The embryologist, Dr. Scott, was also the phlembotomist this morning and had a real hard time drawing my blood.  He ended up having to use a pediatric needle.  Then it was time for the ultrasound with the other doctor.  He counted 22 follicles today, less than yesterday, but he said he wasn't counting the smaller ones.  Most of them were around 15-17, but one was 22.  He said that one was mature already and he wants me to come in one more time tomorrow and then he's most likely going to have me trigger shortly after.  He also said my lining was an 11, which I think is pretty good.   I'm waddling now and finally feel the bloating I was worried about not feeling yesterday.  

So it seems like we are reaching the halfway point in this cycle and we are still praying that everything keeps going as well as it is now.
