Follie Check #3...

Getting up at 5:00am isn't too bad when you get good news, right? We're still moving along as planned. Today, the nurse measured 13 follicles over 10 plus there were 7 others!!! I have measurements today:

Right ovary - 11, 13, 15, 18, 22, 22 (plus 3 smaller)
Left ovary - 12, 14, 14, 15, 15, 15, 20 (plus 4 smaller)
Endo - 16
E2 - 2,200!!!

I'm just taking lupron tonight and tomorrow (no stims) and my Ovidrel shots tomorrow night. Retrieval is scheduled for Tuesday morning in Indy!!!!!! Transfer will be Friday or Sunday...I'm hoping for Sunday!

I have my plan for the time after the transfer, and it's different than before. I'll be doing estrogen tablets and Estrace in addition to the Endometrin with no Ovidrel boosters. Has anyone else done this?

Yay! I am so excited for you!!

Please don't be disappointed if you have a 3 day transfer. Of my 6transfers, I only made it to a 5 day transfer once, and I didn't get pregnant that cycle. Both of my successful cycles were 3 day cycles that I was slightly down about the fact that they weren't 5 day! So don't hold too much weight on that! :)

Congrats! I'm so excited for you. It looks like we're on the exact same schedule--retrieval Tuesday, and hopefully transfer next Sunday. Fingers crossed for both of us!

Sounds like you are on your way to a great retrieval! I find it so interesting how everyone seems to have a different protocol. Good luck!
