No I'm not a heroine addict

So I've been going for daily ultrasounds and blood work since Saturday.  On Saturday one follicle should have been taking a lead and getting bigger.  None did.  Hormones didn't rise and no eggs looked like they were being produced until yesterday - 5 days after they should have.  My arms are so incredibly bruised from daily blood work.  I should be finished the torture by tomorrow but since my ovaries are about 5 days behind schedule, I will have to continue with this daily poking and prodding regime until ovulation occurs.  Like most, I'm not a huge fan of needles, but I'm not one to get too squeamish on getting blood drawn.  Now it is downright painful! I am not sure how much I can take. 

Just another 'experience' in this whole game of baby making.  I really can't wait until it is all over so we can really just relax and forget about it all for awhile!  I need a break!


  1. Hang in there girl. Try to remember that baby anytime this process gets overwhelming!!

  2. Sending positive thoughts and hugs your way!
    And fingers crossed for you!
