And we're off!

I had my baseline appointment yesterday.  I was nervous that I would have a cyst and have to wait another cycle.  Great news - no cysts!  The ultrasound also showed lots of follies on each ovary.  I talked with the nurse again about my fear of over-stimming and she told me to come back on CD 9 for an ultrasound so we can see what's cooking. 

Today is CD 3 and I'll do my first injection of Follistim tonight.  Although I planned to do these shots myself, I'm kind of bummed that Mr. MBC will not be here.  He will be attacking his 12 hour drive tomorrow morning at 5:30 am.  I'm so glad he's coming home!!

I don't know if there is any truth to it or not, but I plan on drinking pom juice until O.  I did this during one of my Clomid cycles and the nurse referred to my lining as "nice and fluffy".  However, it was one of the worst AF I've ever had.  Fingers crossed that AF has her bags packed and will not be back for a while!

Changing topics....I've truly enjoyed being a part of ICWL this month.  I've just started blogging and I know that I would not have nearly as much traffic or followers if it wasn't for ICWL.  Thanks to Stirrups Queen for organizing this amazing group of bloggers.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
