The Ovarian Report

02/03/2012

Doing a little egg dance!

Sorry for the complete lack of posts this week. I have been driving all over the state conducting interviews and shooting photos. Next week will be even more insane. I expect to cover about 2,000 miles total. The only good thing about this is the FAT mileage check at the end of it!

And now for the Ovarian Report!

As of this morning, after 4 days of stims, I had 20 follicles visible on ultrasound all measuring right on target at around 10 to 12.

20!

The doctor was really pleased with how the ultrasound looked, and said we’ll know a lot more this afternoon after my blood work comes back. I add in Ganirelix tomorrow to keep ovulation from happening and then go back on Monday for another scan.

Y’all, this is the first time in a long while that I have felt a glimmer of hope. I know there is still a LONG way to go, but seeing those follicles reassured me that we are FINALLY heading in the right direction. I’ll spend my weekend resting, sewing, and doing egg dances to encourage these follies to keep going. Now, sadly, I have to go back to work. I will catch up on y’alls blogs this weekend and post more soon!

    Yay for 20 follicles! That’s a great number! And I’m so happy that working with RE has been going so well. I know that wasn’t an easy decision to make, so I’m glad that it’s paying off. Thinking of you and fingers are crossed!
