Monitoring Report

Ah, Tuesday at last!!! Halle-frickin-lujah! Last night I was just on pins and needles all night long, could not sleep, when I finally did pass out had a dream I went in for monitoring and my follies were huge and I had to trigger immediately. They were worried they didn't have enough time to develop, so yah...pretty much my worst nightmare. So much for not worrying about that!! Anywhoo, monitoring turned out to be great...my follies are just right, not too big or small! Here's the current count:

Right Ovary: 12.5, 11, 10.5, 9.5, 8.5
Left Ovary: 12, 11.5, 10, 8
Lining: 9.5

Estradiol: 649

The ultrasound lady said there were 5 more on each side that were too small to measure, but could definitely pop by my next ultrasound. And my follies were "nicely spaced" meaning we want bundles of grapes...all similar in size! My RE said the goal was 10-15 follies, so I think I will definitely be within that range. I'm just Soooooo relieved. I just felt like once I had this first monitoring appt under my belt, it would give me some insight to how at least the follie growing portion of the program was gonna go. And tonight I actually reduce my folli.stim from 225 iu's to 150 iu's, but adding in 75 iu's of Men.apur. And I'm still on the 10 iu's of Lu.pron. Hubby came with today, so he got his Men.apur mixing lesson (there are two viles with a powder and liquid that have to be mixed, similar to a trigger shot), so tonight we're onto 3 shots a night! And I go back in on Thursday morning for monitoring part 2!

So today I'm feeling great!! I have been suffering a little from some Lu.pron induced headaches, which my acupuncturists have been all over, and am starting to feel a bit bloated. But really, so far so good. Except my poor tummy...which is starting to get a little sore, more from hubby trying to get a good pinch each time than the shot itself. My new estimate for trigger is Saturday, 4/10 and ER on Monday. So we'll see, stay tuned!

Yay! So glad the first monitoring appointment went well. The night before my first monitoring I was a wreck too! I dreamed all night that I missed my appointment and then they had to reschedule the whole ivf because I missed it. I woke up about 4 times that night, fell back asleep, and dreamt the SAME THING! haha. :) So glad everything is looking great! Keep us up to date. :)
