Day 4 Results

So I just got my results back from my first “stim-check” baseline blood/ultrasound. My numbers are as follows:

Estradiol -421. LH-1.61.

Right Ovary-12 antral follicles. Left Ovary-13  antral follicles.

Apparently these numbers are good, but a little bit too good. They are dropping me down from 225 units of Gonal-F to 112 units. I guess this is a good sign that things are happening. I am also extremely relieved that I will be taking a lower dosage of meds. Although I have been feeling fine so far, I’ve been worried that eventually I would turn into a monster and wouldn’t be able to function. I even canceled plans we had for this Saturday night because I assumed that I would be in a such a tired, emotional and bitchy mood that I wouldn’t be that much fun to be around. Wow. Is it possible that I will be able to survive this process without losing my mind? Have I already lost it but just arent aware of it because I’m  insane?  I must be insane because I decided to take a 24 hour Real Estate licensure course this weekend (12 hours each day!). Meanwhile, my car is in the shop and my husband’s passenger side window is broken and wont close. Just picture me getting driven to and from class in my husband’s truck, riding around in a freezing snowstorm with a scarf around my head because my window is wide open. I am a glutton for punishment that is for sure.

This week will be fairly uneventful, but NEXT week is when the fun really starts. Im guessing I will trigger this Sunday- Yikes!

Ok, Im ready. Let’s get this motherfucker started.

  1. Wow! Nice stim results girl!! Look at you and your over-achieving ovaries!!! Awesome!!!

    (I think it’s a very good idea to drop that Gonal F dosage, btw!) Are your follies still under 10mm? Did they give you sizes?

    Keeping it all crossed for you!

  2. Sounds really good!!

  3. wow you lucky girl! you have so many antra-follicles to work with! that’s amazing! my fingers are crossed for you!

  4. I am so glad that your numbers are looking good! Even if they reduce your dosage, it is excellent that you’re having such a good response!! Hang in there!

  5. Hi – I’ve just started following your blog recently, but it’s been such a great help to me. I’m literally about six days behind you. First of all – my “journey” looks very similar to yours – I had 3 failed IUI’s before starting my IVF journey. I started Lupron on the 28th of December, and just started my Bravelle and Menopur last night. My next appt is on Friday morning. It’s nice to know that so many other people are going through this at the same time as me.

    THank you for your posts!

  6. Hello!

    My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss “veteran”. You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my (not very updated) blog: . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

    I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

    Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at . I have included the criteria for participation below.

    Best of luck to you!

  7. Your numbers look great! Just take it one step at a time. Today things look good! Good luck!
