I went in again this morning for another monitoring visit.  I wasn’t expecting anything and planned to go in and ask about how much an injectable cycle will cost because I’m a planner and I want to think about things before it happens.  When I went in she had issues finding my ovaries again. I swear they have the worst time finding mine. I’m not sure if it’s because I have eaten within an hour or two or if I have IBS or what.  They are always hard to see and have bowels that push them out of the way.

Anyways – I had a surprise today.  She could only find one – and she couldn’t tell if it was a blood vessel or a follicle, but if it was a follicle it is mature sized.  I don’t remember the exact measurement because I was like wha???, but it’s there.  I guess all the other little ones went away and left one big one if it is even a follicle.  They said they would wait for my blood results to come back and then that would tell them.

My appointment was at 8am and now (4:05pm) they finally called and scheduled me for another monitoring visit for thursday.  I asked if they knew if it was a blood vessel or a follicle and she said they didn’t know yet.  She said that I had not surged yet (I guess that means my estrogen levels?) so I haven’t reached ovulation so they are being cautious and having me come in again.  I have never had a mature follicle before! I have never gotten this far before if that is what it is.  *fingers crossed on it being a follicle and it staying there and growing to my next appointment.  Have you guys ever found a blood vessel in your scans?  It just seems weird to me, but what do I know.

    That is good you have one mature follie! I have never heard of the blood vessel issue. At least they are monitoring you very closely though; hopefully it will help them better determine what is (or isn’t) going on. I hope you get to join me in the 2ww also!
