Not Tonight

Here's the report from today's appointment, which is also Day 12 of stims.
     Lining: 16 mm ~ Whoa... it grew 4 mms overnight!
     Right ovary: 15.5, 14.5, 14.5, 14, 13, 13, 12, 12, 10
     Left ovary: 18.5, 17.5, 17, 17, 16, 14, 14, 14, 13, 10, 10
     Total: 20

As of this morning, I have 6 mature follicles and 7 that are really close.  Looks like leftie has really caught up and is leading in this race!  When I left the clinic this morning, they wouldn't even give me any instructions on what to expect, except to wait for the phone call this afternoon.
I just got the phone call.  No trigger tonight.  I am to take only 1 vial of Meno.pur this afternoon (which I just did), and then 200 IUs of Follis.tim again tonight.  Then only the 5 units of Lu.pron in the morning.  I will wait for more instructions at the appointment tomorrow morning.

More waiting.  I'm actually quite OK with waiting, I am not that anxious to trigger.  I'm more than happy to wait another day if that helps me get more mature follicles.  I just hope that taking my Meno.pur today at 3 pm instead of 9 am is not too late.

Please follicles, please grow!

Looking at my IVF calendar, as of tomorrow, I would have been at the RE's clinic 7 out of the last 10 days for ultrasound and blood work appointments.  I hope tomorrow will be my last trip before my retrieval.


  1. Reading your IVF story is like reading my own...you are on the same protocol I did. The thing that seemed to work for us in getting prego twice on IVF, was assisted hatching. Have you thought about doing that? Also, my last IVF cycle they pushed me far and my ovaries felt like water balloons with the growing follies. Sometimes that feeling doesn't go away for a while, even after ER. I wish you the best of luck and lots of sticky vibes soon! Nan xo

  2. Hang in there! You are really close. It will all be worth it very soon :)

  3. You are getting so close. The next couple of days are going to be crazy!! I'm praying for lots of mature eggs! Good luck!

  4. Hang in there. You are so close!! I hope your eggs continue to grow!! Good luck with everything!

  5. Another day, a little bit bigger!! Hoping trigger is tomorrow and lovely juicy lining too!!

  6. Come on today be THE day!! Your numbers sound great and I think that waiting a few extra days pays off (it worked for me!!)!! I am keeping everything crossed for you! You are handling this like a pro.. so proud of you!!

  7. I'm getting sooooo anxious for you! I agree with Nan....we did assisted hatching as well. Ever discuss that with your doc?
