I'm glad you found my blog! Please visit my current blog at



Today's ultrasound showed signs of progress. Not much had happened when I went in on Monday, which is normal as the follicles develop slowly at first. This morning, the scan showed three 6mm follicles, five 7mm, one 8mm, and two 9mm (as well as some too small to measure yet). I've continued on 225 units of Follistim, 10 units of Lupron, and 10,000 units of Heparin (two 5,000 unit injections a day). Stretching across my stomach, the semi-circle of bruises from the Heparin resemble a snowman's coal smile, with my bellybutton in place of the nose. I'm definitely wearing the most comfortable waistbands possible; thank goodness for working from home! I go back for bloodwork and ultrasound on Friday.

It's good to see you back again! Best of luck with this IVF cycle. I hope it all works out for you! Also, if it makes you feel better, I'm on 5000 units of heparin twice a day and my belly is dotted in purple and green!
