Itsy bitsy teeny weeny...

All my ovaries need now are yellow polka dots.

Midcycle scan yesterday, not so great.

Three follicles, the largest was 17.6, the other two were 15's. Doc NoHumor is concerned they're cysts and not real follicles. geez, I'd expect that from Doc Paranoia, but NH is usually less drastic.

I go back Monday for a recheck.

I'm not really sure how I feel about this. Doc NH is a realist, leaning towards pessimist. He looks concerned every time he reads my chart.. which is every visit*. I know that we're in a more difficult-to-treat situation than the average not-ovulating-hand-out-some-clomid patient, and I am so thankful that he doesn't give me false hope month after month, but sometimes, I wish one of us were more optimistic.

Still, I have a lot of respect for his experience and knowledge, and I'll take that over hand-holding any day.

And Monday could bring better news.

*can I just say how wonderful it is to not have to remind him of past cycles every time? before we even talk, he's refreshed his memory of what we've tried and how it worked out.

Now how in the world did my hairy lip lead to your bikini wearing ovaries...unless it's because they received a bikini wax and are now rebelling by providing some nice unproductive cysts? Those skinny bitches!
