Still on track

CD 11 -- had another monitoring appointment (ultrasound + bloodwork) this morning.

Still tracking 5 follicles. Three in a row are 14.7, 13.5 and 13. Another one on that side is around 10. The other side has a 12. So still pretty close in size, which is good -- the 10 may not keep up, but it could potentially have an egg inside at this point, so we'll keep our fingers crossed. There may be another small one tucked in there, but couldn't tell for sure.

Lining is in good shape at 10.6.

Estradiol is 848, LH is 4.0 and progesterone is 0.2. I took my first Ganirelix this morning and will continue with stims through Monday night. Tuesday morning I go in for another appointment which will determine if I take stims in the morning, but the trigger shot will definitely be Tuesday night, for a Thursday retrieval.

Slept horribly last night. None of my medications are supposed to cause that (and only the Parlodel which treats the elevated prolactin is new to this cycle). So I'm thinking I'll use Tylenol PM tonight to make sure I get some rest.

Definitely feeling somewhat swollen in my abdomen. I can't imagine (and will never know) what it feels like when people have 25-30 follicles growing like this.

Really glad we continue to be on track, and no follicles have disappeared. Makes for a lot of similar blog posts, but I'll take that. :)


  1. Nice progress! I have to agree, I wonder what 25-30 follies feel like. I was so uncomfortable on clomid. I can;t imagine what injectables will feel like. Yikes.

  2. Yea for things growing so evenly and nicely! Sending you lots of luck. I know the first time I was on lupron it messed with my sleep. I think I remember you saying you weren't on that though. Good luck!

  3. Sounds like everything is right where it needs to be - that's great! Will be tracking your progress over the next few days.

  4. Sounds like things are going very well. Sending you positive thoughts that things continue on this boring but great road!
