Also... I talked to my nurse. I told her I was a little worried that I had an afc of 22 for last ivf and only 15 for this one. She said that number doesn't matter, and she'd rather see 5 strong eggs growing than 10 so-so ones.... So that helped too!
I know ladylove, my DF is so wise he said to me this morning " none of that matters, those numbers don't matter, don't even look at the monitors, the only thing that matters is if in 9months we have a baby"
They upped my dose to 300 follistim and 3 vials of menopur at night, I also start ganirelix tomorrow.
So glad you are feeling a little better!!! This journey is suuuuch a roller coaster ride. I wish I could listen to that advice, and not look at the monitor!! I can't do it. Id drive myself crazy wondering Haha
What is ganirilex for?
Do you go back tomorrow morning for more monitoring? I'm on my second day of Lupron. I'll start stims tomorrow night. Ahhhh
I'll never be able not to look at the monitor LOL I'm still going to look haha
Ganirelix is the same as cetrotide it keeps you from ovulating so the follicles that are legging behind have a chance to catch up. I go back on Monday since its the weekend it's probably better that way
I have 8 follicles but one dominant at 18 and all the others are 8/9/10/11. I'm not responding as well this time around and if my levels get too high he even said he'd convert it to an IUI but to me that means total failure because I have a block tube and he has sperm issues. My only hope is that we can forfeit the dominant follicle and we can wait for the others to grow
