Follicle Watch 2012 update:
As of this morning I have 10 follicles on the right measuring between 5 and 7.5, and 2 on the left (she came out!) measuring 3.5 and 5.
This is after 3 days of stims.*
Lining was 3.9**
Starting tonight I’m decreasing my dose of Gonal-F to 112.5 (leaving the Menopur the same). Next scan is Monday morning.
And how am I feeling, you ask? (OK, you didn’t ask, but here it is anyhow.) The shots are not too bad; much better than I had feared. I was somehow taken by surprise that they drew blood today — how did it escape my knowledge that this was part of it? And how did I think they were going to measure my estrogen? I’m having some baseless anxiety, which I’m used to but which doesn’t get any easier.
* Gonal-F at 150 and Menopur at 75. And what the hell is an IU anyway?
