Well, the appointment on Monday went well. E2 at 1068 (291 American), follicles at 14, 12, 12, 10, and 5<10 on the right, and 10 and 4<10 on the left - growth of 2-3mm on average since the previous day. This put me about 3 days ahead of where I was on the cycle we did in August/Sept 06 - the last fresh cycle we did. They told me to start the antagonist and come back today, day 8 of stimms, for another scan.
Today's still looks ok, but everything has slowed down somewhat
- Right: 16, 15, 14, 10, 5<10
- Left: 12, 12, 11, 11, 3<10
- Lining: 9.9mm
So it's ok, but not as encouraging. These results would make me just 1 day(ish) ahead of where we were on cycle #3. The doc (another new one) said he thought we might only get three eggs - the three large ones on the right. If we keep on stimming at this new rate, I think we might get more - it's a similar number, and similar size follicles to IVF#3, where we eventually got 14 eggs, although retrieval was on day 16 and we didn't get pregnant, so it's not exactly the cycle I want to emulate in every detail. In any case, I have to return on Friday and we'll see what's happening then. At the earliest, retrieval will be Monday. I kind of hope it is Monday as that will make next week a lot easier with work, but we'll cope with whatever we get.
Oh, and I'm on 300mIU of Puregon, I forgot to mention that previously I think. I'm thinking about self-medicating and upping the dose, maybe to 375 - given this slow-down - what do you all think?
