Perfection

I love the word "perfect." It's just not a word that I get to hear often enough.

In the dark and gloomy world that is infertility, "perfect" is rare. "Perfect" is something others get to experience. In a recent appointment, I was told my right ovary was "perfect," but then my left ovary proved to be cooking up a nice, big egg in spite of the birth control pills.

At today's suppression check, everything was "perfect."

The only possible concern is that my baseline follicle count went up quite a bit and so we have to back off the Follistim amount, but that isn't anything to worry about.

I just got the Estradiol numbers - 24.6! They want you under 50, so that is "perfect," too.

I start the Follistim and Menopure tonight and back the Lupron down to a half dose. I go back in on Tuesday for my first blood draw and stim check. The tentative egg retrieval is 12/11 - barely a week and a half away!

I love "perfect."

"Perfect" is a perfectly grand and positive word.

I'm so glad to hear that it's part of your repertoire today!

Perfection is wonderful, isn't it? Congrats and I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that that trend continues at your next scans!

Good Luck! :)

I love "perfect" too. No other words to describe things going so well.

Just what we like to hear.
Having looked the word "perfect" up in my Oxford English Dictionary, it means;
"1.having all the required elements or qualities. 2. free from any flaw"
Well done you.

I'm glad you get to be perfect, even if it's only once every so often. Great report!

gah already?!? It doesn't seem like it should be so soon, does it?

But yay for perfect! You deserve the perfect *hugs*

Yay for perfect! Since the word has already been tossed out there, let's go ahead and run with it. This cycle should be perfect! And, it should end with a perfectly healthy, beautiful baby. 12/11 will be here before we know it!

As a totally off-topic aside, thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I appreciate any and all insight, trust me!

I'm just trying to breathe and waiting to see how everything unfolds. (Although I did POAS this morning and got nothing.)
