So, the details.
- On the right: two at 16, one at 12, one 11mm
- On the left :15, 13, two below 10
- E2 has climbed to 1623 (442 American), LH 0.4
So althought the follicles are still pretty measly, they are growing, and the E2 has climbed substantially - I assume this is a good thing, even though the follicles are small?
The doctor I spoke to (it was the South African from Friday) was incredibly brusque, tried to get me off the phone with "Come in on Wednesday, thanks, bye." and got quite stroppy when I asked for more information. I became terribly charming, which was a big leap given it was 16:45, they were supposed to call me by 14:30, I'd been trying to get through to them since 15:30, and they turn the phones off at 17:00. He relented a little and gave me the data above.
Instructions are to come in again on Wednesday for blood and scan, when there should be three larger than 17, which is their cut off point for trigger. Don't you think it's interesting that in August the cut off point for fertility was only 14mm, leading to our cancelled IUI? I'll have to ask why there is a different scale for IUI than IVF. I think it's probably the British clinics' absolute paranoia about multiples. Because if the cutoff point had been 17, we could have done the bloody IUI in the summer. Bastards. Not that it would have worked, of course, but at least we'd have had some treatment that might actually result in a pregnancy, rather than messing around which results in them treating us for no good reason.
I tried to ask him about what would happen on Wednesday and he wasn't playing. He said he could not say if they'd go ahead or not based on only having three at 17mm. Please send lots of blossoming thoughts to the 12, 13 and even those little ones to see if they can catch up. Having five would be a lot better than three.
I really hate this. I hate the uncertainty. I hate having work hanging over my head. I hate the fact that my body is screwing me over.
I've written another note to Dr Candour who is due back from holiday today. I hope he replies, I need succour right now.
