Follie check #1 of "Hail Mary"

I had my first follie check this morning.  I'll go ahead and post the stats.

Left: Nothing
Right: 17, 15, 13, 11
Lining: 8.1 mm
E2: 120

Instructions for Mon and Tues:
Gonal F: 150 IU
Menopur: 75 IU

Wed morning U/S & B/W and further instructions.  My guess is trigger Wed, IUI on Fri.

I'm still emotionally whatever.  To me, it's a long way away from seeing some follicles on a screen and bringing home a baby.  I think I'll end up with two mature follies and one "kinda".  I don't think the 11 will grow enough, but honestly that's fine.  I want "a" baby. I'm not trying for twins or multiples or anything.  I'd like to bring home one healthy, living child.  I'm aware this carries the risk of twins, that's how I got Emma and Chase and I'm okay with that.

Hubby is kinda freaking out over all of this, but I told him if he wants done, then we're done.  I know in his mind he sees like 3 or 4 babies right now, but we all know how unlikely that scene is. Heck, to me, even one is pretty unlikely, but we'll see.  I have no control over this, over anything.  I just have to do what I can and accept the rest.  For me it's just doing what my RE is telling me to.  That's why I stopped fighting about the thyroid, etc.  I just said whatever.  He's the guy who's supposed to help me conceive.

Speaking of thyroid.  The palps have stayed "better", they aren't gone and I can still feel them more times than others.  I did find a thyroid specialist that I feel comfortable checking out and my appt is 7/26.  I'm VERY sure I need a diff med than the one I'm on and hopefully I'll like this doctor.  The location is really good too.

So, that's about it.  Just keep going and see what's what on Wed
