Dear Follicle

Dear 29 mm Follicle,

You were most glorious sight I've seen in awhile this morning when I saw you on Dr. Boyd's US machine. I have NEVER, even when I have gotten pregnant, had a dominate, large follicle like you! In all my disappointment and despair after clomid did me wrong, Femara has been there for me and made you so nice and pretty. Even Dr. Boyd was excited to see you! Good to know that my ovaries finally decided to be overachievers like I am! Ha!

I am placing 23 months of prayers and heartache on you. No pressure, but I am counting on you to rupture over the next 48 hours and release the best, healthiest egg my uterus has ever seen (which isn't saying much)! I am counting on you to make the egg that will make all of my prayers and dreams come true sometime around the middle of July. I still have hope of making a holiday announcement.

So, please, don't let me down. I am praying for you right now and praying that you are as healthy and strong as you appear.

Love,
Amanda (the owner of your ovary)

This is my friend (I never thought I'd say that!) the US machine. I had a few minutes to kill while I waited, so I took it's picture! Yes, I was REALLY bored!
Then when I got home tonight, at Dr. Boyd's request, I took an ovulation test which looked pretty darn close to positive! I'll take another tomorrow to see if it gets darker, but this looked pretty close!
Thanks girls for all your prayers this cycle! They are working!!!! PLEASE don't stop yet!
