IVF Update

Okay so I know these numbers don't mean much to you but here they are anyways.

My estradiol today was about 966. (Again they like it around 2000 for IVF). Yesterday was 600 so it jumped considerably. This is probably why it was 2 a.m. before I fell asleep. I did not feel good at all!

Here are how my follicles are looking:
  • 1 size 15
  • 1 size 14.5
  • 4 size 13.5
  • 8 size 13
  • 1 size 12.5
  • 2 size 12
  • 1 size 11.5
So, 18 follicles all around 12-15. Size 20 or so is considered mature. This means that we are getting close. I am taking another 150 units of Gonal tonight and have a blood draw and ultrasound tomorrow. When these follicles get closer to the 18 or 19 range, we will be good-to-go.

I will, of course, keep you posted. It looks like the earliest I will go is Monday right now.

Sounds perfect--the sizes are nice and consistent, too. No lead follicles!

Aaaaaah Tara, spoken by an "infertility sister" at heart. I didn't even bother getting into lead follicles on my blog -- TMI! :)
