Well today will be Day 7 of stims. Day 1-5 was 300 units of Gonal F and yesterday it was upped to 375. First monitoring appt was Tuesday. I waited a long time to be seen and got a nurse practitioner who wasn't very friendly so all I found out was that I had a bunch of follicles and she told me to keep my meds the same. When I got home I checked online and my Estradiol level was 209, LH 1.27, and progesterone .4 also she measured 5 follicles all around 8mms. I emailed the nurse I like and she told me everything looked good so I felt better.
Yesterday I went for another monitoring appt. I am sick of the 2 hour drive already and going up there every other day!! So I requested the nurse I like this time. She measured 7 follicles on the left and 4 on the right that were between 10-12 mms. My Estradiol level was 495, LH 1.44 and Progesterone .5 which is about where she told me I should be. She did up my Gonal F tho. She told me I should be triggering on Monday and retrieval Wed and Transfer Saturday or Monday.
So I figured out how many meds I have left and I will have enough to get me thru Sunday. If I don't trigger Monday and need to still stim I will probably only have 200 to 300 units which might not be enough. This concerns me a lot. It didn't seem to have the nurse worried though. I called freedom fertility and they can send me meds if they get the script by tomorrow morning.
I have monitoring again tomorrow so I have my fingers crossed that they just lower my dose so I have enough. I just REALLY don't want to buy more and definitely if we don't really need it. I hate to waste money!! So hopefully my nurse can have a good idea if its going to be needed Monday or not so I know if to order it tomorrow.
I am trying hard to stay calm but it is not easy for me!!
So I almost forgot the best part of my appt yesterday. She told me my lining was 7...Yes 7!! I am in total shock...the thickest my lining ever got was 6 for my IUIs and this time its already 7!! I hope it continues to get nice and thick!!
