this is your ovary

This is your ovary:

See how everything is plump, round and lovely?
Doesn't it look like it's fully of jolly, good natured eggs who would jump at the chance to slide down a fallopian tube into a nice warm uterus? Doesn't it look like they'd greet sperm with an enthusiastic "hidey ho! let's get together!!"

This is my ovary:

See the difference?
Doesn't it look sullen, petulant, uncooperative?
Doesn't it look like it's full of eggs that probably need a crutch/walker/wheelchair and a jolt of RedBull to even begin thinking of venturing towards a fallopian tube?
And if they happened to encounter the sperm, wouldn't the sperm just turn and swim the other way?
This is what I have to work with.

In the next few weeks I'll bombard these little suckers with estrogren, FSH and LH.
I will hope and pray that 4 or 5 of them will actually decide to take the bait.

Ya know, this is the best illustrated explanation I've ever seen! Best of luck to you, Nina.

Not to kill the metaphor or anything, but you know that raisins plump up nicely in the right conditions...

Keeping my fingers crossed for you, Nina.

Mmmm, raisins. Lovely with oatmeal!

You are on the road again.

Love the photos! I'm not a big fan of raisins and really hate them in my baked good (and oatmeal...sorry pamplemousse) but I do think yours will plump up nicely. Thinking good thoughts for you.

Nina, I'm wondering how you are and if you're cycling as planned. Hope everything is ok.
