The things we do because of IF

So I feel like a complete nut today but figured it wouldn't sound so bad to you ladies. I went in for CD11 monitoring and saw that I have 2 15mm follicles on my right side and a 10mm one of the left. I have a few others but they are all smaller than 10. Fx that they keep growing.

Now afterwards I made my DH drive me to Ripley's Believe it or Not here in Orlando. They have these African Fertility statues I read about online. Luckily they are in the lobby so you don't have to pay to see them. I basically put my hands on each of them a few times and right before we left put both hands on each of them and said please please work. So hence why I feel like a complete nut.  I've posted the link so if you wanted to see what they were. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

  • You are not alone! On our honeymoon in Germany, there was a statue of a monkey holding a gold coin that you were supposed to rub for fertility.  We did......back in 2012....in Heidelberg, Germany. We were so hoping for a honeymoon baby.  Little did we know....

  • Have any of you heard the tradition of not breaking ribbons on the presents of your bridal shower gifts? Supposedly, for every one you break you have 1 baby....I took it as a challenge and successfully opened all my gifts without breaking a ribbon. I get so mad at myself when I think back on it....I should have torn through all those damn ribbons!
