If you are visiting from ICLW welcome! For first time visitors, I am in the middle of IVF cycle #2, you can read more about me and my past cycles by clicking the tabs above.

Good news - After 14 days on stims I finally get to trigger tonight!
Bad news - I only have 5 follicles that are probably mature, 17mm-21mm. I have 5 others on my left ovary but they stopped growing days ago, they are all 8mm-12mm.

So despite my new protocol I am still going to end up with the same number of eggs. I know it could be worse, at my appointment Friday my doctor wasn't sure if I would get more than 3. This news of course led to a small breakdown and I spent the first 20 minutes at work crying about it. After all this, it just reinforces my decision to use donor eggs if this cycle does not work. I don't think I can go through this again.

I am doing some baking therapy today, saw this recipe on Pinterest and couldn't resist! My coworkers have been wonderfully supportive of me these past few weeks so I thought they deserved a tasty treat.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I truly hope you don't have to use an egg donor and get your baby with this IVF. Egg donation is a great option if you need it. :)

  2. Hi! Here from ICLW. Good luck with your 2nd IVF! Trigger day, Yay!

  3. That looks delicious! Did it come out as well as it looks?

  4. Sorry you've had such a rough cycle. I hope that despite not getting anymore eggs that you'll have a much better end result.

    That recipe looks delicious and I think that making it is a very nice thing for you to do for your coworkers.
