A little update; Yesterday I went to my D6 US after being on Gonal-F 225 IU for 3 nights (BTW I do my injections kinda late @ 10:30 PM, I keep forgetting to tell my RE!) Anyway, I had 4 nice follies growing @ 15x13, 14x14, 14x12 & 13x12 They're all almost perfectly round, the RE (she's not mine) said that was good;) Didn't think to ask her "why is round good ....I ALWAYS ask questions! LOL
My lining still needs to thicken up it was @ a 6 but I'm sure it will by the time I O, they need to see it @ an 8 when they trigger you.
My E2 came back @ 284, &I spoke to my RE & he said that it was perfect;o) I told him I'm going to acupuncture & doing acupressure on myself through out the day, & he said "well, whatever you're doing is working, so keep doing it" ;o) So, he kept me on 225IU's for last night & tonight, & I go back tomorrow for another US & b/w!
I'm "visualizing" that they are going to be all 4CM's bigger ;o)
I hope SOOO bad that one (or 2!) healthy eggies sticks ;)
So that's me for now!
Hi! Thanks for the update. Yes, keep doing what you're doing! Always nice when one's doc approves and notes the effectiveness of what we're doing.
Sorry I haven't updated. Af arrived and now I'm CD 4. I also went to the GP just to have some tests and they say they're all normal (FSH, EP, day 2??) I have progesterone test on CD21 and then I might visit a specialist just to see what they say. Of course I hope I'll be pregnant this month anyway.
I feel great but got a bit down in the week before af as I was pretty sure I wasn't pregnant.
I also have to be 100% honest and say recent events at the 35+ board kind of freaked me out a bit.
what happened on the 35 plus board?
also a question for you other ladies regarding bbts. How high does your temp increase after ovulation? my temps were hovering around 97.2, then jumped to 97.6 at ovulation, and now has jumped to 98.1 to 98.4...it did this last month too. I'm about 7 days dpo.
and does anyone have experience with underactive thyroid. from what i'm reading online, my low body temps, low blood pressure, depression, etc could be signs of an underactive thyroid. thanks, catherine
My temps do the exact same things! You should go look @ my chart! VERY similar ;o)
Pum; OMGOSH! I agree w/you! I think it got a bit crazy too! YIKES!
Tree; Thanks hun ;) I feel good about this cycle ;o) Don't want to get my hopes to high, but I DO feel really positive & happy about it ;o)
Can't wait to see my little follies tomorrow LOL I'm a nerd ;)
I think it's just one of the risks of the internet. That it is hard sometimes to know what is real and what isn't. This board is the first time I've been brave enough even to use my real name.
Sorry I do my temps in deg C. They go from 36.2 (97.1) then up to 36.6 (97.9).
Ita: positive and happy is always a good thing.
