So, What are Your Plans for Lunch Tomorrow?

I have mine... We are going to make a baby; at least attempt to make a baby.

I was not really optimistic during my appointment this morning. If fact, I almost canceled because my car was acting all goofy (We think I need a new battery) but I went anyway.

The nurse is probing around for my right ovary and the follicles were only 12.5 and 13.2 mm. Well, since those were the ones I was counting on, I figured this cycle is a bust. She moves over to the left one and tells me to palpitate my belly in that area and to bare down; out she popped. That ovary came out bold and proud sporting the most beautiful sight I had seen... two follicles at 23 and 19 mm (15 mm and above is viable for fertilization). I almost cried. My lining was 11.5 and since I had two great eggs, we triggered.

Now I get to spend my lunch hour tomorrow at the RE attempting to make a baby. I am excited yet strangely calm. At least we know that I am making eggs and I can relax a bit. (Yes, I used the dreaded ~R~ word.)

I am just going to sit back and let nature take its course from that point on. For the first time in a long time, I just feel content. But, will I stay that way during the 2WW? LOL I can dream can't I?
