Nine! I have nine!

Woo hoo! *dances* I have NINE, count 'em NINE follicles to work with!

I just got back from the doctor's office on this, my CD10 and first cycle with both Clomid and sub-cue injectables (Puregon, 50 IU), and the doc is really pleased with my response.

The numbers:
Endometrium lining -- 7.8 (very respectable considering this is only CD10)
Right ovary -- five follicles ranging from 1.3 cm to 9.14 mm
Left ovary -- four follicles ranging from 9.93 mm to 8.7 mm
Dosage -- to remain at 50 IU of Puregon until Saturday
Next appointment -- CD12, Saturday @ 8 a.m. (he'll likely be able to do an insemination)

And better yet, the donor samples have arrived at the doctor's office and are good to go. He's very optimistic about this cycle and really, so are hubby and I. We're doing everything we can to make this work.

So much so, that I am going to do some cleaning around the house today and tomorrow, so that I will be able to relax a little over the weekend when he does the inseminations, rather than be in a frantic tear to do both the housework AND put up Christmas decorations when Saturday and Sunday arrive. Tonight I get a bit of fun time too; hubby and I are going to see some friends as we're going to their home for dinner and a chat. It's been awhile since we've seen them, so we're looking forward to that very much.

Ah yes, one more thing. The doctor commented, yet again, that my bladder was full. Now that tells me something: I must have an AWFULLY large bladder! I used the washroom twice this morning before I got to the doc's office for my 7:15 a.m. appointment. On top of that, I hadn't had a thing to eat or drink since about 8 p.m. last night. WTF? Weird. Just very weird.
