IVF update: Stim day 6

I'm home from the Dr and I have DETAILS!!!

Things went really well today. I actually had my Dr do my ultrasound this morning and she was more than willing to give me all the details that I wanted. I didn't even have to get rude with anyone.

As of right now I have 20+ follicles. All ranging in size from 12mm to 15mm (with the exception of a few crazy 24mm runaways)  WOOHOO!!! I am so excited, not only to finally have some specifics, but also because my ovaries are stimming like rock stars. Hummm, does that even make sense to compare my ovaries to rock stars? Probably not, but you get my point. I will be 30 at the end of the month, and just figured my ovaries wouldn't produce as many follicles this time. They are definitely proving me wrong though.

My meds have been reduced again to about 37.5iu of Follistim (yes, I have to divide one 75iu vial in half. Fun fun!) My next appointment is Monday at 8:45am and as of right now it looks like ER will be on Wednesday 2/16.

Remember how I wasn't feeling any pain in my last post? Well apparently my ovaries read that post too because they are now REALLY tender. I can barely even sit down today. My jeans have been retired until after ER because I can't take the pressure on my waistline.  I'm living in yoga pants these days, which if I am being totally honest is not that big of change from my every day life. I love me some yoga pants!

Hopefully only 4 more days until Egg Retrieval!!! WOOHOOO!!

Those are fantastic numbers! WOW! You ARE a rockstar!

I can't wait to find out how many fertilize. And I assume you will freeze some for another baby later?

I wish I had 20 follies!

Whoah! That's a great haul. Make sure you drink plenty of water and avoid hyperstimulation. Good luck with fertilisation and transfer!
