Today is our fifth day in the stimulation stage of things, and I am beginning to really notice the full feeling in my abdomen. I have a feeling I am going to be ready to get these eggies OUT by the time retrieval gets here! This morning I had my second monitoring ultrasound and it looks like there are about 25 follies growing away in there. The largest have grown about 2 mm since Monday, and are measuring in at 10.5 mm as of this morning.
Once my blood work comes back we'll see what happens to the doses of medications I am taking. My doctor said that if my E2 was normal we would increase my foll.istim dose a little to see if we can get the smallest follies to catch up, and then start tapering off. I have another ultrasound and blood work on Friday. Hopefully at that point we will have a better idea of when the retrieval might be.
Today I'm thankful for a nice uneventful cycle! So far everything is going according to plan and it makes the stress level very low- love it!
