So, I went in for my ultrasound this morning. First thing I saw were two dark circles on an ovary. "What is that?" I asked. Super nice technician, "Cysts."

I've been worried all day that my last IUI would be postponed. Luckily, I worried for nothing. I start the G*nalf tonight. They upped my dosage again. Oh what fun? Also, since my luteal phase was shorter by two days this cycle, I'll be on progesterone. More fun.

Wondering if my "different" symptoms were caused by the cysts.


On another note, I am EXHAUSTED. We partied like rockstars this weekend. And had a great time. Between travel, little sleep, and emotional exertion of this cycle - I feel like I can sleep for a few days. Hoping to play catch up this week.

I'm sorry that you had a cyst, but I'm so glad that it didn't delay this cycle. And, I really hope that everything goes well throughout your stims and, most of all, that this is your cycle.

Also, I wanted to just take a quick moment to thank you so much for your support and hope. Your comments have always meant a lot to me, particularly because I know that you and I have struggled through some of the same questions about the various treatments we all consider. You are such a wonderfully spiritual and selfless person, and I have learned so much from your posts, stories, and comments. And, I have so much hope for you, my friend.

Thank you again, and please know I'm thinking of you!

Best of luck with starting this cycle, and I hope the cysts don't cause any problem.

Thanks for dropping by my blog! It's always nice to have visitors!

Also, I'm glad, too, that the cyst did not stop your cycle. I had a huge one last month 333CM (I think, can't remember now) and it delayed me so I know how it feels. Anyway, just wanted to stop in and say good luck too!

I'm glad your cysts aren't going to delay your treatment.

Good luck with your injects. I hope that this cycle is the ONE with all these BFPs flying around!

The vodka sour is on the house since it's your last cycle. I hope that the universe has a funny way of holding out until the last moment and then shouting, "okay, you win." At least that's the world I'd like to believe in. I'm hoping for you this month.

Good luck this cycle, Dianne. I hope that you find that Golden Ticket--and you certainly don't have to justify stopping treatment to anyone. It's what's best for you as a couple, and that's the only reason anyone ever needs.

But I really hope this cycle works for you.
