Lazy Lefty

Do any of you notice one ovary working harder than the other during your treatments? From my previous IUIs and now this round of IVF, it really seems like my right ovary always does what it’s told and gets an A+ in egg production, while my left ovary just kind of hangs out and only churns out an egg when it feels like it. When I told my mom about this, she said, “I guess you just have a lazy ovary!”

My doctor says this is totally normal — often, the ovaries take turns, going back and forth each cycle as a “producer”, but sometimes you can have one ovary pumping out eggs for the first half of your fertile years and the other pumping out eggs for the second half.

In any case, I guess my follie count today shouldn’t be too surprising — the bigger ones are definitely on the right, although there are still plenty of potential little guys on the left.

Getting there! I’m scheduled to go back in on Sunday, and I’m hoping retrieval will happen mid to late next week.

And now… my cat Weeps chasing a Gonal-f pen cap:


She’s also very curious about my Lupron syringes…


Weeps, you don’t even have a uterus anymore! Give it up!
