Ok. So excuse the obscure Simpsons reference, but Ow!
For some bizarre reason, I tend to turn into a try-hard stand up comedian when I visit my Fertility Specialist. I guess I just get nervous and try to make light of the situation by making witty comments. Such was the case today.
I had my CD10 ultrasound today. My specialist is such a lovely guy and always puts me at ease, even when I'm baring all on the table! He tends to ignore my nervous attempts at jokes - such was the case today.
After giving me my blood test results (336), I jump up on the table, ready to do an invasive ultrasound - the kind with the magic wand - and immediately notice my unshaven legs. Ali! Really?!
"Opps sorry for the legs! I mean I really should have shaved for you"
Dr: "It's ok, it doesn't bother me." - oh great. So he noticed.
"Right.... here is your right ovary... a few small follicles... nothing of note here... and now for the left ovary..."
Prod, prod, poke, poke....
Oh come on Doc! Give me the news! I can take it!
"I can't seem to find your left ovary..."
Me: "I swear I have one! I've got pictures to prove it!"
Dr: "uh huh..."
Prod, push down on stomach area where ovary should be, poke, prod....
Dr: "oh there it is... way up there..."
Thankful that he found it, we discovered I had 1 significant egg measuring 13mm in diameter! Hurray! Yay! I have an egg ready to ovulate!
Me: "So when do you think I'll ovulate?"
Dr: "Oh I'd say it would be about 4 days time given the size of the follicle"
Drats. Nick just left today for a 5 day trip...
Praying and hoping that this little egg is running behind schedule!
My little egg...
