Smiley Face

Went in for my follie scan this morning. Leftie hurts like a b, but only had one measly 12.5 mm follicle to show for it. Rightie took the lead. Two nice ones, 18 & 21mm. I was in and out in under 15 minutes, awaiting a call with instructions to trigger tonight & IUI on Friday morning.

Came home, used an OPK and SURPRISE! Smiley face. As that's the third surge I've ever seen in in 5 years, I actually said out loud "WHOA! Oh boy!" and went running for the phone. Left a message for my husband and the clinic to advise that our timetable just moved up on its own.

I'm honestly relieved because I really felt like I was closer to Oing than I expected and was afraid we were going to be a day late. I guess I was right, but for once, the tests worked to save the cycle.

Of course, I'm a nervous wreck about 2 good follicles. We do not want twins. Not that I wouldn't love two babies, but risks go up and we're already pretty much maxed out on risk. But here we are.

Crossing our fingers and jumping.
