13 nights so far – tonight will make 14, every possibility there’ll be a few more.
Stimming slowly…steadily it would seem, but slowly. My ultrasound tech has used the work “blossomed” in regards to my right ovary following some early sleepiness with said ovary, and it’s now cranking on quite a few follicles. Though left ovary is now only really working on a few follicles, so my how the tables turn.
However, lowering my follistim and progressing slowly has all been on purpose in hopes of having a better result than last time. Quality over quantity seems to be the name of the game…..or at least that’s what I’m telling myself. (It’s all about what we tell ourselves, right?)
Saw The Russian (for any new readers, that’s my RE)…..(because she’s Russian) who did today’s ultrasound and could not find my right ovary which led to alot of shoving, prodding and general discomfort due to the fact that I thought that probe was likely bumping up against my lower lung cavity. NOT COMFORTABLE. Anyway, she wants more time for the growings, so likely another night or two of stim meds. I go back tomorrow morning for another look.
At this point we’re hit the day-to-day portion of our IVF fun. Trigger…..soon. Retrieval…..also soon?
