Hello blogland! I thought I'd pop on and give you guys an update since I've had 2 scans/blood work appointments in the last 3 days and another tomorrow. Friday's appointment went well. They called and said that my estrogen was at 491 and I had 7 measurable follicles so they kept me on the current doses of the meds I am on and told me to come back Monday (today).
I got up at my usual time today and made the 2 hour drive back down to Springfield in the heavy fog this morning and had another good appointment. I ended up with around 15 measurable follices (ps. measurable is anything over 10mm) all measuring between 10-22mm. They said they would call me this afternoon with instructions and I was really hoping for the phone call that said we could trigger, but instead they want me back down again tomorrow with one more night of stims. My estrogen basically quadrupled and is at a whopping 2128, still within range, but certainly rising quickly. The range is anywhere between 1000-4000 during an IVF cycle so we are sitting pretty as far as that number is concerned and we are right where he wanted me as far as follicle count goes so all looks really really good for this round.
She said we should expect retrieval to be either Thursday or Friday this week and I should find out more tomorrow! I really cannot believe we are at this point. The time is flying and everything is going so well. Although I have had to travel to Springfield multiple times in a row, I am glad they are watching so closely. It's quite the difference from my last cycle where they only monitored me one day. I have really high hopes for this cycle! I'll keep you guys posted as I find out more!
