Stim check #2 update

My estrogen was 295 today (LH<0.4 and Prog<0.2), so no med changes. On my u/s, my lining has thickened to 8mm. On the left ovary, I have 4 follies measuring: 14, 13, and (2) 11mm as well as 4 smaller follies around 8mm. On the right ovary, I have 6 follies measuring: 13, 12, 11, and (3) 10mm as well as 4 smaller follies around 8mm or so. I was told to come back on Thursday for another stim check.

We were going in regardless on Thursday for my pre-IVF physical, Steve's back-up sample freeze in case there is a problem on the day of retrieval, and our meeting with one of the genetic counselors at CCRM. A very busy morning, indeed!

Had a blast with my Mom. I'm gonna post about that later. I had to take her to the airport early this morning, so I've been kinda lonely today. But, Steve arrives tomorrow night, so my alone time will be short-lived. Yeah!

Hi Jill - the number of follies you have cooking sounds really encouraging - a great number looking to mature at the same time. I have everything crossed for you this week!

Everything sounds like it's going well. I'm very happy for you!

My company has several locations in Denver, so I travel there quite a bit. If you're looking for a good place for dinner, I recommend Simm's Landing or the Keg. And for breakfast, I always enjoyed Le Peep.

Sounds great, all of it! I see that you said you had PCOS, perhaps that is why you are on lower doses. Sounds like the doc is trying to guard against OHSS perhaps?

Kate said...

WOW - what a great report so far. You must be thrilled that this cycle is going so great. I am really happy for you!

I hope you get to enjoy some of Denver even though the convention is there.

Everything sounds great! I've got you in my prayers, Jill. I have to say, I heard "Don't Stop Believin'" the other day, and I totally thought of you :)
