I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all you lovely ladies who wished me well, sent good vibes, and kept your fingers crossed. It worked!
My scan went great! I didn’t see my RE at my visit as they had a case this morning, so I just met quickly with the ultrasound tech, and had my blood drawn. As soon as she located my right ovary I could see the little bubbles and I let out a huge hypothetical sigh of relief. There were follicles! I could see them! She counted 5 on the right. One was only very slightly larger than the rest, and the other 4 appeared to be growing at the same rate, which she said was good. I can’t remember the size, it was either 8-10, or 10-12 mm. On the left, I had 2 larger ones (about the same size as the ones on the right) and a very small guy in between them. I know that’s not a ton, but it’s better than nothing!
I left feeling much more confident than I had felt all week. Even if they had to cancel the cycle, at least I knew I was somewhat stimulable, even if I’m not quick to respond to the drugs.
Later this afternoon I got the call from one of the IVF nurses with my instructions. CONTINUE current dosages (375 IU Gonal-F) tonight and tomorrow, have blood draw on Saturday morning. YES!
I asked her if things were looking better (obviously). She said “Oh! Dr wanted me to tell you, he is very encouraged by your blood work and the scan.” Super!
Can I just tell you, that was probably the first phone call we’ve ever received from any of these IF docs, that was actual good news. I didn’t know that could happen.
So, on we go. I can’t wait to shoot up in a couple hours, since I know it’s working. Although, I could definitely feel some ovarian action going on the last couple days, more so on the right, so I suspected SOMETHING was happening in there (even though my pesky blood work didn’t seem to reflect it.)
I know a lot of things still need to go right for the rest of the cycle, but for now, I’m feeling good.
