14 follicles growing steadily. A calmer Chance.

Lining measures 9-10. There's a bigger pocket of fluid, but we've been assured that it's due to my high estrogen level and that it will dry up rather quickly once I start progesterone. A calmer Moxie.

A mountain of old fashioned vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, caramel sauce, and fresh sliced peaches in a sweet and flaky pastry bowl shared between the two of us?
