CD 11 (Increasing meds)

Here are the updates from this mornings appointment:
I am now up to 12 follicles. On the right the largest are 17x11 and 10x6. On the left the largest are 13x8, 10x8 and 10x6. My estradiol level has risen to 172.5, but is still considered low. My RE upped my dose of Gonal-F to 112.5 and I go back on Wednesday.

I actually asked the ultrasound tech today how she is able to keep track of all of the follicles and she said that they all look different to her. I joked as she then measured another and said, "I think you already measured that one."

I headed off to work and went to a preschool to see some kids. In one of the classes they were working on something and the little girl I see wanted to stay to finish before I pulled her out. She was making a "numbers book" and on each page it had a number and the child had to recognize the number and then draw that many cycles. As she was drawing her circles all I could think was how much it looked like my ovaries. All different sizes and shapes, but all circles.

I really thought we were going to trigger tonight and was a little disappointed that wasn't the case. On to Wednesday to see how things are progressing. Does the waiting ever end??


  1. Nope the waiting never ends :) Sounds like you have several good potential eggies there. Good luck!

  2. what a funny analogy! :) good luck this cycle! grow, follies, grow!
