The cyst is gone. THE CYST IS GONE! Oh, thank the Lord. Thank THE Lord. Thank the Lord.

If you could see me today, you would see a different person. My coworker remarked on the elevator this morning that I looked like I’d gotten some sun. “Nah, that’s just the glow of my first good baseline monitoring appointment since early December.” (Don’t worry, I didn’t say that.) Friends, that’s just me being HAPPY EGG again!

I’m still waiting for the call confirming my blood work isn’t “whack,” as the nurse put it. Then I begin taking my beautiful little 50mg Clomid pills. I asked the nurse if my egg quality would suffer on the lower dose (yeah, within minutes of my great cyst-free news I’m already trouble-shooting the next potential issue) and she said it doesn’t typically impact how much the follies grow, but how MANY grow. I was like, “Hmmm, I only had two mature follies on 100mg….” And she said, “Well then, let’s hope for one good one at 50mg.” True that.

One good egg. That’s all it takes.

Well, that and some fluffy lining and awesome spermies and a solid P4 number. 🙂

C’mon stars, ALIGN! Align, align, ALIGN!

  1. Oh Egg, this news just made my day! Fantastic!! So glad you got the go-ahead for this cycle. Are you taking estrogen in addition to the Clomid? Are you IUIing or going au naturale this time around?
    Such a great development, Egg! Yay!

    I’m smiling the biggest smile for you right now! So happy! Such a relief to get you back in the game! Are you reducing the clomid to make sure the lining doesn’t get too thin? or prevent cysts? I am over the moon excited that March will be your month!!!

  3. This made my day too! (That and your super sweet comment to me. Tear!) Finally, finally, finally! I will be hoping for multiple good eggs, leading to at least one Good Egg baby!

Got to love IF and sports analogies!!! Seriously, so happy for you girl…I just knew you were due for some good news after these torturous months!!!

    BTW: You’re so lucky you have an RE that is supportive of running. My RE (and OBGyn, BTW) are NOT. That’s why I’m not mentioning my marathon training…whoops.

  23. I’m so excited for you! I hate freakin’ cysts. I am so impressed you had 2 follicles on 100 mg/clomid. 50 might just be your lucky number!

  24. Smiling ear to ear for you, girlfriend!!! AM SO HAPPY!!!

    Can’t wait to hear how everything goes.

  25. Yay for no more cyst! And it’s great news that you get to proceed (barring any “whack” blood work)! Progress is the most empowering feeling out there so eat it up and ride that wave, girl!
