Follie Check #2...

Everything is moving right along! This morning we had 10 measurable follicles!!! 5 on each ovary...very exciting! I know some of you may be thinking that 10 seems like a lot where others probably think 10 doesn't sound like very many. For our last IVF, we only had 6 retrieved (4 mature) and this time we are going for 10! My doctor is pretty conservative and doesn't want to risk OHSS (Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome). We know it only takes one, but having 10 gives us a good chance of a 5-day transfer and really seeing what these embryos are doing! My E2 or Estradiol is at 1,002! I'm going back on Saturday morning at 7am for more bloodwork and ultrasound, and then we'll see what the plan is. Sounds like retrieval will be either Monday or Tuesday!!
