And they're off . . .

my follicles that is! I went to my RE's office today for my baseline ultrasound and blood work. The office staff seemed especially cheerful and positive this morning, which was a great way to start off a new IVF cycle! The ultrasound tech that I got today is my favorite of the two in my office. They are both really friendly and caring, but this tech is more positive without being unrealistic. She said that everything looked great. She also told me to "think positive thoughts," which I feel like I am this time. AND, on the ultrasound this time she wrote that there were 30 follicles <10mm,>

My nurse called and gave me instructions for the weekend, and I took my initial dose of my liquid gold:

I have to take this bad boy to an all-day music festival this weekend! There won't be any bathrooms to shoot myself with (except for Johnnys, blech). So, I guess I will be grabbin flab to shoot up in the middle of Forest Park -- awesome!
