growing this, growing that

So I'm not so good at growing follicles. I am CD11, have been on 150IU of Gonal-F for the last 3 days and 112IU the 3 days before that. I have 3 follicles all on the smallish side, the biggest being 13mm. It's fine. I'm not saying it couldn't/won't work, but it's not the kind of results I thought I was buying. 3 more days of 150IU and we go back in on Sunday for another ultrasound and bloodwork. I think they'll give me the trigger shot and we'll have a Tuesday insem. But, we'll see how my stubborn reproductive organs play along.

What I am good at growing is vegetables. Look at todays bounty!! My father, my uncle, my brother and I were having a "contest" for the first ripe tomato. DING DING DING, we have a winner! Of course there is no prize for this contest, just bragging rights. Fine by me! I'm doing the "I got the first red tomato" dance!! As a side note, and to add insult to injury with my father, there is something being said about organic gardening. I can't wait to eat it!

Give yourself some credit; 3 is good:) I think my first injectables cycle I only had one follie...not the outcome I had anticipated either.

Waaaah! I wanna garden. Don't want to leave NY. Curses. I'll live vicariously through you guys and eat your virtual tomatoes. Yum. Digitalicious.

Great looking tomato! We have two small plants that DP's dad gave us at Memorial Day, and we now have a few tomatoes that are growing. It is so exciting to have growth--especially when it is the first time! I am new to this whole growing things, thing!! Guess next year once we get the yard situated we will attempt to grow more things!
