Ok, so we had our 2nd monitoring appt. I am still feeling very “out of service” lately but we got there. New nurse taking my blood (she’s very nice) and Dr T was there, first time I ever saw a dr at the satellite office. WHOA. She was the one who would do my u/s and I was very nervous.
First, the past few days I am not bloated. Not at all. In fact I put a new pair of pants on Wed that I was sure I “shouldn’t” be able to fit into to at this stage and what do you know…zipped right up. Also where I had a lot of Ovary pain at the beginning of the week, nada now. Just little zings once and a while but nothing that has me doubled up in pain or think I might overstim. Not the best way to head into an IVF monitoring appt.
So she comes in, gets the wand ready and then for the next 3 minutes is trying to figure out how to work the u/s machine. Talk about ANXIETY ATTACK. She finally got things all set and here are the stats I remember.
I currently have 15 follicles between 11 and 21. On my right side (the overachiever it is, I mean really NO TUBE but it does all the work) I had 9 follicles ranging in size from 12-21 (only one 21 and 3 15′s I remember the rest is a blur) then on my left side, the side the hurts and zings me every so often….only 6 follicles and what underachievers those lazy bastards are….and followers too…every follicle on my left side was a size 11. No that’s not a typo, they were all 11. Even the Dr didn’t seem to know what to say while giving me the numbers. So I am hoping that 11 is a lucky number for me cause I got it all over the place. Then she tells me my lining is a 12 and seems very happy about that. Yeah, it’s great if I have something to implant there. Geez.
It seems that I might start seeing the dr every day now. I asked her if she was leave my dosage the same or up it tonight, her answer was that until she saw my estrodial she wasn’t sure, but probably Up she said, “we don’t go backwards”. So that’s where I am.
Still rolling the dice. C’mon 11.
