Slow and steady wins the race...

That was hubby's cliche in response to today's scan. Lucky he wasn't there with me or the evil wand the doc was using may have ended up somewhere else!

So...the bad news is that we don't get to trigger today. Which means two more days of injections. Which will bring the total to around 59 injections by Friday morning. Plus 6 blood tests!

The good news...well, my follicles are evening up in size, which is nice! More of a chance of a viable egg in each, rather than one greedy follicle sucking up all the drugs and becoming a very large follicle while the poor starving tiny ones linger behind craving just a taste of Gonal F.

So, here are the stats (last measured Monday, compared with today's measurements)

Follie #1 has grown an amazing 1mm, from 16mm to 17mm
Follie #2 has put in a sterling effort of 2mm, from 13mm to 15mm
Follie #3 is my personal favourite and has grown 4mm from 10mm to 14mm
Follie #4 has done very well, up 3mm from 10mm to 13mm.
And Follie #5 who was too small to be measured on Monday, has leaped into the picture with 12mm!

More news on Friday! Hopefully we will get to trigger that night, I would really really like that! Threw up last night, and the headaches and general low grade fever is taking it's toll...but I know I can make it through another two days...

PS...I wouldn't really have used the wand on DH. Maybe just waved it at him a little!


Today's blood test result was 2681, up from 1850 on Monday. Nice numbers I think (though I have no idea really what they should be, but the doc is pleased with them and that makes it all ok with me!)

Quality, not quantity, blah blah blah. But it does sound like things are progressing well for you and your follies. How much Gonal-F are you taking, if you don't mind sharing? Just curious.

Hopeful mother - thanks for your comment. I am on (and have been on) 412.50 IU of Gonal F per day. Pretty much the highest dose they use over here in NZ...
