I triggered last night and my ER is tomorrow!! Woot!! I'm scared and excited at the same time. Scared because what if this cycle is not so good...and excited because..what if it is THE cycle!! I did not post while stimming because frankly all I do is beyotch and moan about how long it takes me to stim and did not want to subject you guys to that
So..the cliff notes version is this. My AFC was low for me on CD 2..it was 7 and I'm used to a much higher AFC. There is a a possibility that some were hiding...but even so...this was low for me. I last did a fresh cycle in February and will be 45 in two months so...although I was not thrilled..I was just happy to have something to work with. My first monitoring appt revealed 8 follies and lo and behold by the time I triggered there were at least 13...likely a few more because my left ovary is always hiding a few. As of two days ago at least 11 of those measured 15 or above so I am PRAYING that they are mature follies and will fertilize properly. Typically Dr. T pulls out a few more than we usually see but it has been my experience that regardless of how many are retrieved, I wind up with the number that were seen via u/s that were sizable. Just as an FYI..I used human growth hormone this cycle and I think it speeded up my stimming. I have always stimmed for 14 days but this time it was 12 days...well..13 because Dr. T made me take another shot 1/2 hour before my trigger last night so BOO to him!! LOL Still..at each step..it was clear to see that I stimmed faster this go-round..not sure if that is good or bad. I also wonder if the HGH helped bring out these additional follies. I do usually come up with follies as I go along but these seemed to come quickly and grew pretty evenly.
So ladies..think happy thoughts for me and my eggies...this is my last cycle with my own eggs. Hoping for a miracle.
