So I had my first monitoring appointment this morning and I just got the results call. So there were 2 notable follicles that measured about 9 and several that were less than 8. My estrogen was 125 and my progesterone was .427. I will increase my Follistim from 225IU up to 300IU and continue the Menopur at 75IU and the micro-dose Lupron at 10U in the morning and evening. I was told the progesterone is good because they don’t want me ovulating, but nothing else was mentioned.
So honestly I am not sure how I feel about it. I didn’t keep any notes from my first monitoring appointments in the past, so I have nothing to compare it to. I guess I am just praying that we get more eggs this cycle than the last and I know it is still early, but I hope on Wednesday we have more. But the nurse did comment that they all looked very close in size, so that is good because that means that they will mature and be ready at about the same time.
So two more days of stims and back to the RE’s office on Wednesday.
I know I have been pretty positive about this cycle and I am still positive that this one will work for us. But there are those moments (few and far between) where I do have a tiny bit of doubt and wonder what if it doesn’t work. But I try as quickly as possible to get those thoughts out of my head. I hate that I let those negative thoughts in.
Ultimately it is in God’s hands. I know that. But if having a positive attitude can help me cope with all of this along the way then I am going to do that. Afterall, don’t we try to eat better and exercise when TTC. Why not exercise our mind and think positively about this. It can’t hurt! 🙂
Thanks for reading.
