This morning I was back at my normal office for my blood work and ultrasound. My poor arms are already bruised. I had my favorite U/S technician and she measured 11 follicles – 14.6, 14.5, 14.5, 13.8, 13.7, 12.6, 12.2, 11.6, 11.3, 10.3, and 10.0. They are so close to each other in size and last IVF they were so far apart that the smaller ones could never catch up. The technician asked me how many were retrieved last time and I told her four. She said this time there will be more. Of course you never know until the doctor goes in the get them, how many they will actually be able to retrieve.
My estrogen on Saturday was 369 and today it’s 803. Nice, huh?
Historical – day 8:
- IVF #1 – 92.5
- IVF #2 – 369, 5 measured
- IVF #3 – 803, 11 measured
When my nurse called she said I could trigger either Thursday, Friday or maybe Saturday. I hope I have enough to do a day 5 or 6, which means we can see which ones make it to the blastocyst stage.
I’m on daily monitoring now so I head back tomorrow morning. I hope to know more tomorrow afternoon, which trigger date it could be.
Fingers and toes crossed for me!! 🙂
