Stim check #5 & 6

Not as I expected...I had to return to for two more days of monitoring. I am finally using the trigger medication tonight and the egg retrieval will be on Wednesday. I can't begin to say how uncomfortable I am. I almost feel sick. I am wondering how bad tomorrow will be!

My estrogen level on Sunday was 1150 and today was 1821. Today I had one 21 mm egg, two 20mm eggs, one 18, one 17, two 16 and one 11. I began stimulation with a cyst on my right I suspect that the size 11mm egg might actually be a cyst.

I really wish that I didn't have to work tomorrow!

Stim Check #4

My estrogen level was at 950 and I have two 18's, one 17, one 16, one 15, two 14's, one 13 and one 12. They would like my estrogen to be a little higher and for the smaller eggs to catch. I might be doing my trigger shot tomorrow....which means that the eggs will be retrieved on Tuesday. Yay.

I started feeling uncomfortable last night. I feel a lot of pressure and achiness. I even drempt that I was in labor!

Stim Check #3 correction

My largest 3 follicles are 13mm....the rest are from 10 to 12mm.

Stim Check #3

My estrogen level doubled again to 452 (which is what they want). I have 9 measureable follicles. The 3 largest are at 16mm, the rest are between 10-12. I was given a new tentative date for egg retrieval: Next Wednesday or Thursday. We are coming along...yay.

Stimulation Check #2

My estrogen level doubled to 160 which is what they wanted. They saw 10 follicles this time (I guess they didn't see them all last time :-) They were all still to small to measure. They have to be at least 10mm to be measureable. I will be staying on the same medication doses and return to the office Thursday at 7am for my stimulation check #3. The nurse felt that they should be measureable by that time. Let's hope.
