Okay. Just in case (and I so hope not) I have to do another ivf cycle, I want to sort of take some notes on what's happening with this cycle.
I started doing Lupron shots a month ago (10). Went down to 5. Got my period. Stayed at five. Did 2 Delestrogen butt shots. Started Menapur (3 vials and estradiol suppositories or "vagina burgers") 2 and a half weeks ago. On Sat. they had just started to grow with a 14 lead... (I'd switched from stomach shots to top of thigh shots to aid absorption). Today I have about 19 eggs; an 18, five 17s, eight 16s, three 15s, two 14s... it looks good. My lining has been good this whole time and it's now a 12. Doc thinks the estrogen primer (delestrogen) slowed my response/helped my lining. I'm set for retrieval either Thurs. or Friday. It looks... GOOD. I'm hopeful, excited. Will feel better after tomorrow's appt when I hopefully get the ok to trigger, will feel better when I wake up from ER to hear that they actually got eggs... and so on and so on til I bring home a healthy baby.
