Grow, Follie, Grow!

I don't have time for a real update, but I wanted to post quickly about my little follicle. It grew! from an official "11.5" on Tuesday to "13.3" this morning. So we've got ourselves an actual active follicle! I go back on Sunday to see how it's doing and *possible* *just maybe* get to do an IUI early next week. The odds still aren't great (or even good. or okay. they're still bad.), but this is definitely the best shot we've have since I was diagnosed.

I'm headed to Indy tomorrow to run a half marathon for which I have not trained on Saturday morning. The RE assured me that it's perfectly fine to run. Not that I will be able to run the whole time.

I'll post Sunday after my appointment with an update. I'm getting pumped about the possibilities but still maintaining a pretty even keel. I think I'll be okay either way.

If you think about it, send me some happy follicle-growth-spurt vibes this weekend! I'll need 'em!


  1. YESSSS! I am willing that damn thing to grow.

    And jogging along side of you in your super impressive marathon. And by jogging I mean driving slowly in my car shouting encouraging words out the window and perhaps playing "eye of the tiger" on my radio.

    1. Luckily "eye of the tiger" is all I need for a successful race! You'd make an excellent running buddy!

  2. Sending you SO MANY happy follicle-growth-spurt vibes!!

    Hope the half marathon is great!

  3. Definitely sending you happy follicle growth spurt vibes! Lots and lots of them!!

  4. I'm sending you all the happy follicle vibes I can spare! (I'll send you more if I end up not needing my own.) :)

    Good luck with the half-marathon!

  5. Yay! This is such great news. So happy for you. I'll definitely keep sending good vibes to your ovaries this weekend :)

  6. YAY! GROW GROW GROW! (AND GO GO GO! - no worries about not training, because you'll rock the half marathon anyway. I did my first without training.)

  7. Woot woot! Grow follie grow! :D Sending prayers your way!

    And good luck with your half marathon!

  8. That's great news! Grow grow grow! I'll be thinking of you.

  9. Good luck with the follie! Everything crossed for you. Hope the race goes well
