I don't have much to write just yet until nurse Dawn calls with the results, but from my untrained eye my follicles looked a lot bigger today than they did on Monday. I swear I even feel little twinges in the ovaries lately too. This is all good! I will update this post when I get the call with where we go from here!
Update: My e2 (estradiol) level after 6 days of
stimming is 248. Slow and steady wins
the race! My follistim dose will stay at 225 a day for
tonight and tomorrow. I’ll be rechecked
(sono and blood work) on Saturday in Cleveland at the actual clinic (I do most
of my monitoring locally in Erie at my OB).
My lead follicle is on the right measuring 13mm. Ol’ righty also has a 12mm and four less than
10mm. I’m not sure what happened to two
of them on the right as I had 8 on Monday.
Ol’ lefty has two at 11mm’s and six less than 10mm. They will most likely have me trigger once
the lead one gets to 18 to 20mm. I am
not sure how many more days that will take.
Google says they grow 1 to 2 mm
a day. So that would have me triggering
Tuesday at the latest and Saturday or Sunday trigger at the earliest.

- After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
