The thing I didn't mention last week ** UPDATED **

I didn't mention this last week, nor did I tell dh, because I had this hope that by not mentioning it, it would go away. But today I will know the facts.

When I had my baseline ultrasound last week, the doc thought that I had a cyst on one of my ovaries. She was having trouble seeing it for some reason and keep jamming the probe every which way, which was a bit uncomfortable. I did see something that looked huge but even after 20 months of looking at ultrasound screens, I'm still not an expert.

I told her that I thought birth control pills prevented cysts from coming and she said, "sometimes". Not what I wanted to hear. Anyway, she couldn't get a good view on the ovary so she decided to let it go until today when I have the water test. So, of course, I've been worrying all weekend that they are going to find a $%#^@! cyst and it will delay my egg donor cycle.

I DON'T WANT THAT! I want to get going on this. I have all my drugs sitting on the counter waiting for me to start taking them tonight. I'm ready in every way. So, 4 hours until my appointment and I'm starting to lose it a bit.

Please, don't let there be a cyst........................... Wish me luck.

**UPDATE**

The appointment went great - no cysts on the ovaries and the sonohystogram showed a perfect uterus! I was so relieved!

I paid a whopping amount of money today and now everything is set. I start the lupron tonight and take it for the next two weeks. Estimated ER = July 23 (one month from today) and ET = July 28.

WOO HOO - we're on the way! The official start date of this donor egg cycle is TODAY!! Can you tell I'm excited?
