I know you said you were going to start getting frequent ultrasounds. How is the cycle going now? Hope everything is progressing well.
Ok I think, thanks for asking

I had my first follicle check yesterday after 7 days of stim and the report showed:
Right ovary: 14x11mm, 13x8mm and (5+) between 5-11mm
Left ovary: 14x12mm and (5+) between 5-11mm
E2: 444 (it was 211 on Tues)
Lining: 4.5mm multilayered
So looks like I am progressing pretty well but still in the early stages. My next check is tomorrow. I tried to find out what that (5+) 5-11mm really means... but the nurse said that they don't report them until they are over 12mm. So that could mean all these little guys could be at 5mm OR they could be closer to 11mm. Just trying to stay cool and not get too caught up in the details, but it's hard!! BTW... on my CD2 US the report said (2-4) 5-11mm on right and (2-4) 5-11mm on the left, so I am thrilled some more popped up.
So glad to hear this!

Wow!! That is a great response!! I think you might end up with follicles in the double digits. That's awesome. Keep us posted on how everything is going!
One more question....
|April 15 2011, 2:08 PM |
I posted under your comment but had a question:
Are you on high stims? I think you said you were on 300 menopur and 300 gonal-f...is that correct? So excited for you!!
|April 15 2011, 2:26 PM |
300iu Gonal F and 300 menapur, I added ganirelix back into the mix this am. When do you plan to start your cycle?
|April 15 2011, 2:56 PM |
I'm starting my next IVF cycle next month. Doing the EPP antagonist.
|April 15 2011, 3:32 PM |
I hope it's the magic protocol for both of us!
|April 16 2011, 10:18 AM |
I hope this is the cycle for you!!
|April 15 2011, 1:16 PM |
That's a reason to celebrate! Good luck as the cycle progresses.
Thanks to my cheerleaders! :-)

Good luck today

That was quite a report!!! It looks like you are making great progress and have some great potentials that have popped up. GL with your follow-up today!!
Thanks... things are looking good!

E2 was up to 925 and I now have 11 over 12mm!
|April 16 2011, 1:28 PM |
This at the new RE, right? Sounds fantastic, so exciting!
Yes, new RE
|April 16 2011, 2:47 PM |
sorry sent that too soon
|April 16 2011, 2:54 PM |
Yes, my new RE... haven't talked with her once since starting but I am still naming her as the mastermind behind this cycle. Trying to just stay cool and not get too excited... nothing worse than a let down.
Hope you are enjoying motherhood!!! So very happy for you!!!
Woot!! Is this a different protocol?
|April 16 2011, 1:47 PM |
Yeah!!! That is fantastic!! Is this amount of follies normal for you? If not...is this a new protocol for you?
Slightly different protocol
|April 16 2011, 2:52 PM |
My last RE had me do mega doses of Gonal F ... I think 625 and then 150 of repronex, now I'm doing 300 menapur, 300 gonal F. My last cycle I had an awesome AFC of 16, but after the same amt of time I only had 4 measurable and an E2 of 257.... I ended up with 8 over 12mm with an E2 of 1169 after 14 days/trigger. They got 7 eggs and I ended up with a BFP but early m/c. I'm pretty excited about my response but trying to stay cool.
