Why Won't My Ovaries Cooperate?!

I had my CD 11 monitoring appointment today.  The cycle we did in April, I had one on each ovary and it resulted in our pregnancy with blackberry.  We stimmed for longer, but had to up the follistim a couple of different times.  Last cycle, I had one dominant follicle on my right side at my CD 11 monitoring appointment and the one on my left was only 12.  They had upped my follistim a little bit in the hopes that I'd have one dominant follicle on each ovary this cycle.  However, I only have one 20mm follicle on the left and all the others (one other on my left and 2 on the right)are less than 15!  What is the deal?!  I can't help but think that if 2 eggs resulted in one baby, my odds with only 1 seem less than great.  I know, I know, "it only takes one!"  But, still, I'm tired of this whole thing. 

Anyway, Nick and I have to be to the RE at 8am on Saturday for the IUI.  They said we should bring something to do, since it takes 1 1/2-2 hours after giving the sample for them to process it before we can do the actual procedure.  Seriously?  They better be infusing it with gold or something for it to take that long!  Then, we get the joy of having to transport it to the clinic for the actual IUI.  Fun will surely be had by all.  Asher will be staying the night at my mom's tomorrow night since we will need to leave at 6am on Saturday to get there.  ugh

I hate the whole process of IUI's - so weird! It only takes one - just keep telling yourself that. I think I'll also be having an IUI on Saturday, but my RE has back-to-backs, so I'll also have one on Sunday. Will be thinking of you!!! Maybe we can get through the wait together...
