We had our cycle day 10 ultrasound this morning. Three mature follicles! I am so relieved. They want to wait another day and do another u/s because they need to be a little bit bigger. I heard like a 17.3 and 17.5 and 13. It’s different for everyone, but the numbers I see on the Internet is around 18-20 for follies that are ready to go. So tomorrow morning is the second u/s and if everything is good, I will trigger Christmas Eve. Personally I am hoping they will hold off until I can trigger Christmas Day evening (that sounds weird) and then we can do back-to-back IUIs Wednesday and Thursday.
The nurse also told me that one cup of coffee a day has not shown to have any ill effects on treatment, but I think I am still going to keep it limited until this cycle is over and I get a negative pg test.

15. If you are not yet pregnant/a parent: What are you MOST and LEAST looking forward to after that first beta?
How fitting this comes today, right before our IUI.
MOST: I am most excited for the fact that this month of actual monitoring and drugs will have a result. It gives me something to look forward to.
LEAST- After hearing my initial number, I think it would just increase my anxiety because if the number is good, meaning the pregnancy hormone is detected, it will need to double itself every 2-3 days or so to conclude that it is a viable pregnancy. And just because the number isn’t so good, doesn’t necessarily mean there is no pregnancy. So overall, anxiety, is what I am least looking forward to. As Martin Lawerence says in Bad Boys 2:
