Ultrasound #2 - cycle day 9

My head is all full of numbers now, so I'm not sure if I'm going to get all the facts right. After my nurse calls today I can right everything down and actually get the sizes of all my follicles. The important thing is that the five follicles that were 10-12 mm on Wednesday have all grown and then a few of the smaller ones have caught up. So I have about 7 follicles that are over 10mm and they saw about 4 small follicles that probably won't catch up but they are good support for the big ones. I am pleased with seven. I have never done this well before and now I just have to hope that they keep on growing at the right rate and that they all have good and healthy eggs inside. I'll try to post again after the nurse calls to give exact numbers.

Yesterday we drove over to Boulder and had lunch. Then we went to Nederland, CO to hike an easy trail. We also went to their carousel that has the most magnificent story and it was gorgeous! I highly recommend driving over to see it if you're in the area. It only costs $1 to ride and it truly is a beautiful thing to see. Plus, the tiny town of Nederland is really neat. There's a great ice cream, garden, and book store (yes it's all one store). Anyway, Boulder and Nederland are both worth the hour drive. It's a great day trip!
