are not always good.

Do you remember how awesome Righty was doing? Yeah?
Well, Righty surprised even the doctor today.
Righty gave up. What a slacker.
That nice 14 and 16 from just two days ago? Gone. Shrunk.
I totally didn't see that coming.

Shame on you Righty.

Now lefty- at least- decided that enough is enough.
Lefty took it upon herself to go ahead and make a 17, a 16.6, and another 16.
If you recall, just two days ago all Lefty had was a 12 and a 15.

Go Lefty.

Of course, my doctor was concerned that maybe I was getting ready to surge on my own. So, rather than allow that craziness to happen, we went ahead and triggered. (*sigh*) I would have liked them to be a mm or two bigger, but I guess I should be thankful that they're even still there at all.

So, we go ahead with the IUI tomorrow morning.
Then I start the progesterone suppositories (ick) Sunday night.
And then, everyone (except me) will just have to hope for the best.

I'm definitely not optimistic about this cycle.
I may have had an inkling of hope before (that rat bastard)-
but I think I have thoroughly squelched it out now.

And so, the wait begins.

Argh. Stupid righty. I reserve full rights to hope for you.

Fingers crossed.

And, fwiw, I think the 17 and 16's sound really good, considering the quick jump they made. If they keep it up they'll be just perfect in time for your IUI!

Boo- that naughty Righty! Still crossing my fingers for you!

Righty is a slacker indeed! Sorry, but it still sounds like things are promising. Good luck with the IUI on Sunday.

The 17 may be an 18 before it actually releases though! You still have time after that shot. I am hoping this is it for you!

Sorry about the slacker Righty! I am keeping everything crossed for you tomorrow. I hope all goes well!

I am definitely not a fan of surprises--especially not ones like that. But I am holding hope for you.

HCG gives them a little boost doesn't it? They should be a little bigger and well within the mature range by release. FX!
