Transfer Update

Mar 18, 2008 - 7 comments

Had only one good  blastocyst to transfer.  I also transferred 2 that did not make it to blastocysts but are decent looking morulas (sp?)  Anyway, thanks for your well wishes and thoughts, girls.  I really appreciate it.   I am in bed until tomorrow 1:00PM AND AM LOOKING FORWARD TO A WARM SHOWER! My BETA is not until 3/28.  I hope it worked!  DH wants me off the computer.  8-)

Hope everyone is doing well!

Back from ER

Mar 12, 2008 - 10 comments

I am having minimal discomfort and hanging in there.
My preliminary results; I had 6 mature eggs, 7 intermediate and 3 under mature.  We are hoping that some of the 7 will mature by this afternoon.  We are wanting for the embryologist to call us.  Not bad.  8-)

follicles



Well, ultrasound #2 (on stims) was today.  I have 3 follies on the left that were 15, 14, 14 and 3 on the right that were 15, 13, 12.  The others are not over 10 yet and she didn't count them all today.    

Tonight I also start growth hormone injections.  I started Ganarelix this morning too.
Well, if this doesn't work towards a pregnancy perhaps I will be stronger and taller?

I keep forgetting to ask about my lining.  I am wondering how it is looking at this time, but I guess it doesn't really matter just yet.

stimulation



Today was my first ultrasound after starting stims.  I have 6 follies on the right and 7 on the left.  I asked what happened to my 10 and 10 and the RE said they still can grow with continuation of stims.  The largest one on the left is 10 and the largest on the right is a 7.   I have about 5 days left of stims.  I am also using a growth hormone beginning on Sat. until my ER date. I should start Ganorellix soon as well. Probably Sat.  Ugh!  That's 4 shots a day! Plus blood draws!

I definitely responded better to the stims in cycle #1.  I don't know what to think of all this.
