Follie Scan #2

My second follie scan was this morning (after 5 nights of stims) and I made sure to ask for more details this time. Not that it means a whole lot to me right now (and I won't have my E2 results until later) but I just needed some reassurance that something was happening in there - and that I didn't shut down the factory with my mishap on Saturday night. To be honest, so far I feel exactly like I do every cycle. I wonder if the pain I always feel is really related to my endo or if I just have strong ovulation pain. Who knows?

Anyway, here are the results of my scan:

Right Side: 14.8, 12.7,12.6,10.3,9.5,8.9,8.5
Left Side: 10.6, 10.3, 9.4, 9.1, 8.1, 7.8, 6.6, 6.3, 6.0, 6.0
Lining: 7.2 mm (up from 3.4 and then 6.0)

So that's 17 measurable follicles. I guess I'm okay with that. More would be great, but I know that it could be much worse too. The nurse said that I will most likely stay on the same dose of my meds to allow all of those 12's, 10's, and 9's try to catch up to the lead follicle. I had to buy more Gonal-F, but at least that's the one I get at 50% off. The nurse also guessed that we would trigger on Thursday or Friday night for a weekend retrieval. That would be nice since I wouldn't have to take and I'd have plenty of time to rest.

In typical roller coaster fashion, last night's injection went totally fine. It's ridiculous how I can be so crazy one night and so completely relaxed the next. Hopefully tonight will go okay. I can't believe that I probably have less than a week left of injections. Even though I'm nervous about the next stage, I am so ready for this part to be over!

  1. Sounds really promising Ana! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that the rest of your follies will get larger and all will go well!
