Day 6-shots, scans and elephants

Well, peeps, I am a little better today....my labwork was "ok" and my scan showed another follicle trying to get in the race, so keep your fingers crossed....we need all of the contenders we can get....my follicles continue to grow...my lead follicle is almost 18mm..yikes!! it needs to slow down just a tiny bit...Gene's 21 hour flight doesn't leave until tomorrow...he will be here thursday 8:15pm delhi time....but the tricky part is i have to have a trigger shot 36 hours prior to egg retrieval to induce ovulation...so, what happens if i trigger and his flight is canceled or delayed??? OMG...I don't want to even think about it...we were not anticipating me responding so well this time..or so fast...geez....i guess it is true what they say, every cycle is different....anyway, after dropping off my meds at the hotel, Bec and I headed to yet another market (we asked Rahul to walk with us as this one made us a bit nervous...we did not stay long)..we then headed to a temple but en route rahul asked us if we would like to ride an elephant...of course we both said yes, heavy ovaries, bloated bellies and all....let me tell you; it is a wee bit more frightening than it looks! all I could imagine was the "saddle seat" that was tied on with a rope; getting loose and us being upside down under its belly!  Then a pack of dogs started following us and I got worried about a stampeded, but that was all in vain as we had an uneventful trip overall...that is until we paid the man...apparently he thought his elephant ride was worth more that usual...so, we followed Rahul's lead and made a run for the car!!! We finally made it to the temple and it was gorgeous!!! Marble intricately carved everywhere, statues encrusted with gold....beautiful, simply beautiful.....of course I don't know how to spell the name of it and they didn't allow any pictures inside the gates...but, mind you, they do not play around at that temple...they have seperate lines for the ladies and the men...and let me put it this way, they do a very thorough job of frisking you before you enter the temple....and that is all i'm going to say about that....I did want to add a thank you to everyone that has been kind enough to post on my blog, especially yesterday when I was down...for some reason I can't post a comment on my own blog...i must not have the settings right, lol...anyway, i appreciate your thoughts and prayers; you don't know how much your comments mean to me....they do lift me up; please keep them coming!!!  take care, need to rest now...my follies have a big show tomorrow so they need their rest....rene'

Nice elephant!!

Woo hoo! Here we go!!!!


  1. Rahul is taking good care of you girls!! Follicle woes...keep the faith!! Tell hubby to be ready for his very best performance :)

  2. Duane is going to be SO jealous when he reads this! I promised him an elephant ride next time!

  3. Hey Rene,

    So envious of your elephant ride! Elephants are lucky--hope some of that luck rubs off on those follies! I hope everything works out timing-wise, and that you get some spectacular eggs! Glad you are feeling a bit better, and that you loved Akshardham! It is stunning, and also has plenty of elephants (carved ones, but still lucky!) Keep us posted!

  4. That's so cool!!! What awesome pictures you have from your trip! Try to keep a calm mind in regards to the follicles and flights; worry (as we all know) won't do anything to help or change circumstances. Best wishes!
