Left Ovary – biggest at 11mm
Right Ovary – biggest at 12mm and 11mm
Synopsis: This really has been the most boring cycle. And tiring. It’s probably the melatonin but I’ve been a zombie all week. But all in all, I’m happy about the mundanity. No surprises, no stress.
All shots have gone off without a hitch. Had my first monitoring appointment this morning. She said I have 5 on one ovary and 3 on another but didn’t say which had which. But shout out to my right ovary for having the 2 biggest so far. My lazy girl has come to the party finally! The voicemail the nurse left wasn’t very informative. She just said, everything is going well and to go back on Friday with Ganirelix. No estrodiol levels or anything. At first I wanted to call to find out but I’m okay not knowing. It’s too early for anything and I don’t want to go on a comparing frenzy anyway. Calm and boring is the name of this game.
So far so good 🙂
Food: Been generally healthy (low carb, low sugar, no booze), minus the cake and prosecco on Sunday. No interesting recipes. In fact, we need to go grocery shopping.
Outtakes: (Prince Eric’s face cracks me up)

OMG that picture!!! Hahahahahahaha!!!! Glad things are going well for you. I would go crazy with so little info…every time I went in I had a note pad and pen and was crazily writing down every single follicle size as they measured lol! Good luck on your next scan Friday!
Thank you, friend! xx
I’m glad to hear everything is going well. Boring is pretty great as far as ivf is concerned! Here’s to a smooth rest of the cycle.
Thank you. the more duller the better :). Hope you’re doing well! xx
Why are you taking melatonin?
I read a few places that it helps with egg quality so just trying it this cycle until we trigger.
Awesome. Good to know. All the fun things we try 🙂
So glad to hear that things are going good!
Thank you! Can’t believe we’re almost half way already.
That picture is hilarious!!!! Thank for the laugh. I hope this cycle is it!
Thank you! I would love it if it was 🙂
Great picture! Yeah I took melatonin and it made me into a zombie…but in a nice way (better than being stressed). Keeping everything crossed for you. X
Thank you!! Do you think the melatonin helped?
Yes well it helped me sleep and keep relaxed.
Calm and boring sounds just right right about now!! Good luck for your next appointment!!! 🍀🍀💪
