Hello Blog World...Here I Come!!!

I was searching the web for my fellow soldiers in the infertility war and found so many blogging about their experience. It inspired me to do the same and tell my story.... even if no one reads it...just for my own therapy. So here goes :D

I went to my RE yesterday and found out that I actually ovulated!!! I was in shock. He used the term beautiful corpus luteum...and I was like what does that mean. So of course instead of just asking...cause I was in shock, remember. I came home and googled the heck out of it. I finally found that it was defined as :
Corpus Luteum – After a woman ovulates, the fluid filled sac in which the egg matures (the follicle) becomes the corpus luteum. It continues to produce androgen, estrogen and progesterone, hormones that prepare the uterine lining to accept and nurture the fertilized egg. http://www.sbivf.com/glossary.htm

Okay so now I get it...he didn't actually see the egg, just the corpus luteum and that showed him that I ovulated...I guess I am slow :D

Neways~ Now I am worried...of course, but soooo happy that I finally ovulated!!

I should probably say Welcome to Blogging and YAY for ovulating! PCOS SUCKS sometimes.
