Yesterday I had my first post-stim blood work to see how things are going. The RE called me in the afternoon and said that we need to up my dose of Gonal-F from 225 IU to 300 IU. He said other than that, everything else looks fine. But what does that mean? He didn’t give me any specifics. Ugh. I know this is probably not a huge deal, but it feeds into my general panic.
Ever since I heard my AMH level was on the lower side (1.13) I’ve been worried about how I’ll respond to the drugs. I’m paranoid my ovaries won’t function properly, or that I have low ovarian reserve.
Tomorrow I have blood work again. Later this week I’m assuming my ultrasounds will start.
I’d love to get some good news one of these days.
(PS- I think the general miserable tone in this post can be attributed to my nonstop RAGING headache I’ve had all day. I don’t know if I’m to blame the Gonal-F or the fact that I’ve had absolutely no caffeine today, for the first time in forever. I’m thinking it’s the decaf coffee.)
