Welcome to today. Hi. I’m Annie and I cried 9 times.
Today was an interesting day. I woke up to a blanket of 1 inch of snow. I had an appointment at 7:15 am, so I left my house promptly at 6:50 to allow myself enough time. And then, the anger started….
I start driving and immediately a person in a Suburban pulled out in front of me. They were unwilling to exceed 15 mph. Hi, I drive a front wheel drive car- you drive an all wheel drive. Perhaps stopping on a hill isn’t smart; didn’t your dad teach you anything?
Side note: see dad, it was a great idea to go to work at Office Max with 8 inches of snow. I’m a total pro now…
Anyway, after I got to the appointment, I depantsed and M came in and gave me the word. One follicle is coming out in front and trying to overrule everyone. There are 3-4 other guys on each ovary playing second fiddle to big mama. That was terrible news on its face; it meant that egg retrieval may not be a possibility due to the progesterone levels that may be produced by big mama follicle. So, I anxiously awaited the blood work…and cried 15 times while cursing my body.
Finally, I got word. Everything is okay; maybe we can ignore that stubborn, big, bitch of a follicle. My progesterone is LOW and my estrogen is 260 after day 7. I had similar results after day 9, last time, so it’s all good. I was scared because I didn’t have a headache, but right on schedule, it came!
Appointment on Wednesday AM. More drugs and hoping for the best. I welcome instability if it would come with bebes. 😘😘
(Oh, and the title… check out my face. I’m like a teenager in heat.)

Annie, you should be a writer. Still praying for your follicles. Keep up the good work my love. 😚
I’m a bit jealous your doctor doesn’t reschedule appointments because of snow. Theodore and I were supposed to see the specialist today, but because of 6” of snow and -2 degree temperatures we now have to wait until Monday to get answers. Glad things are still looking good for you. We’ll be praying for you.
Thinking of you guys. We love you!
