Onto my ultrasound. I was really hoping our lullabies had worked and hoped to see that the follies had grown but they were all still between 12-14 mm with one 15mm. Really no change since Monday. Dr. A upped my follistim to 375 tonight and 300 tomorrow night (I had been taking 150 the last two nights) and added a vial of luveris to tonight's protocol. He has pushed our retrieval back to Sunday now which seems so late to me.
Here are the notes from today's appointment:
"lining looks awesome"
L ovary - "A little more action on this side" 12,13,13,13,12,11,14,13,13,13,15
"trigger should be friday with retrieval sunday."
"we're going to crank it up a notch and get it going" (upped follistim, added luveris)
"check one last time to see how things look Friday".
Then the nurse called to say that my E2 level was 113. I don't know much about E2's, apparently this is low and should be roughly 200 per follicle which there were approximately 19 of. Dr. A is hoping this is a fluke, so am I. Tomorrow morning I have to go get my blood drawn again. I am anxious for the results.
For the time being, I am hoping that my high protein diet and water guzzling is yielding at least healthy juicy eggs even though they are lagging a bit. I am way behind on my water consumption for today. I've only had 30 ounces and it's 3:15! Eek! I'm just going to sit at home tonight and drink water and give myself injections. Let the good times roll! Perhaps I will pour my water in a wine glass and remember what good times used to be about...
