There they were again this morning. Bright red, and at least 4 inches high. Do you think she's just wearing them once every 3 or 4 days or so, and that just happens to coincide with our scan days? Or is she so addicted that she's wearing them every day? She was back in a short, colourful wrap dress today, brown with red, yellow and ochre dots. And the shoes, oh the shoes. Let's see if she's wearing them again next week*.
I've been feeling lots of twinges in the ovaries this week, to the extent that they showed up in my dreams the night before last. I dreamt that I peed on a stick and it was positive. I took it into the clinic to show Dr Casual and he agreed I was pregnant, and that the twinges I'd been feeling were in my uterus rather than my ovaries. In some part of this dream I was in a big science lab - the really old fashioned kind they had at my secondary school with old wide wooden benches with the bunsen burner connections at the front. And I realised part way through that pregnant or not, I should have been at a meeting - which was, in fact, the meeting I was supposed to be at yesterday morning. And then I woke up. I'm so sad that my subconscious is apparently not a science geek like me, and thinks that I can get pregnant in some kind of mad immaculate conception kind of way involving no sperm and no eggs.
Well, in fact those twinges seem to be relating to reality - and in my ovaries, not my uterus.

I'm clearly behind where I was on the last cycle at this point, but hopefully things look good enough that we will get at least six or seven eggs. We have to go in for a scan on Sunday, and we'll decide then if it's trigger Sunday night for Tuesday retrieval, or trigger Monday night for Tuesday retrieval. I don't mind in particular, but I'd slightly rather we went earlier rather than later as it gives me longer off work to chill out and let my body do the good stuff. But really I'll trigger whenever they think it gives us the best chance of getting most of those eggs. I'm hoping for seven, although if we can get things going enough I guess that nine might be possible? That would be good.
*Just found out that we're seeing Dr Condescending on Sunday for the scan. If she's wearing the red shoes on a Sunday I'm definitely going to ask about it!
