March 11th Appointment

Today's Appointment

E2 = 1601

Lining = 13 mm with triple stripe

Right = 15, 20, 12, 13, 14, 14, 18, 14, 15, 12, 17, 16, 17, 14, 15, 13, 12, 10, and 7 less than 10 (total over 10 is 18)

Left = 13, 13, 16, 13, 11, 14, 15, 14, 12, 16, 10, 10, and 7 less than 10 (total over 10 is 12)

Grand Total = 30 +++ little guys, which at this point we don't want growing anymore.

Size wise things are ready to go, but the E2 (Estrogen) should be higher, the slower moving E2 more than likely has to do with the trial drug and how fast things moved along last week.

The number isn't awful it just isn't as high as they thought it would be. The E2 usually indicates the # of mature eggs. Think of it this way.... for each mature egg the E2 should be about 150, since I have 30 + eggs and my E2 is 1601 it could indicate that only about 10 of them are mature at this point. So of course we strive to have most of them mature. With the 75 units of Gonal-F last night my E2 more then doubled. Tonight I am on 150 units of Gonal-F, so if we can get the E2 to double again we would be at 3200, which would mean that about 20 eggs are mature, which is a MUCH better #. It is all a timing game now, if we go too long some of the larger eggs will die, if we go too soon some won't be mature.

So my last stimulation shot is tonight. Tomorrow night will be the HCG trigger shot and then egg retrieval on Friday morning!!!! Yahooooooo!! We decided to get a hotel room closer to the hospital, as Friday's TIMING is VERY important and we can't take any risks with being late.

Another step closer!
