I got an email yesterday with a report on our donor's first monitoring appointment.

They're tracking 18 follicles between 9-11mm.


I've never had more than 10 to track, and I've never had more than 2-3 within a 2 mm range.

So it feels like a great number.

I just know how the math goes... How many have mature eggs, how many fertilize, how many get to Day 3, how many get to Day 5, how many are genetically normal...

But it's great news at this point, and all I can do is take it one day at a time.

P.S. I had a big blood draw this morning to check my hormone levels and my immunology activity. Hormone results will be back today, immunology later in the week - that will determine if I need an Intralipid infusion before next week's transfer.


  1. It certainly sounds like a great start!!! Don't play 'what if' statistics... - easier said than done!

  2. Great step at a time!!

  3. That's great news and an awesome number of follies.
