I have been on stims for 5 nights now & honestly I haven't felt any symptoms other than the awful bloat & the lovely bruising on my tummy. But this morning when I woke up my ovaries were making themselves known & I felt the "heaviness" feeling in my abdomen as I crawled out of bed. Finally I feel like I am "making some eggs" in there.
Today I had my 1st follie scan & I was extremely nervous going into my appointment. I was worried the pain in my abdomen might be a cyst(s) rather than plump, full ovaries & I was preparing myself to hear the words "we are going to have to cancel your cycle".
So imagine my surprise when I was getting my scan & the NP kept clicking & measuring & clicking some more & on my right ovary alone she measured 13 follies! Then she went to my left ovary & I was even more shocked when she discovered 8 more follies! That is a grand total of 21 follicles all measuring between 9-13mm. I can't tell you how relieved I was to hear that - no wonder I am starting to "feel" things down there! My uterine lining measured 7mm, my Estradiol came back at 654 & the NP said that was all really good & she is very pleased with everything thus far.
The plan is to keep all the med doses the same through Saturday night, then for Sunday night decrease Menopur & Gonal F to 150 iu & on Monday morning have one more follie scan & check labs. If that all looks ok then I will trigger Monday night with ER on Wed.
Finally we are making some progress...
