brief update

I called.

E2 was 457 yesterday
I have 5 follicles on the left (all under 10), they did not image the right ovary (I told the tech it can be very posterior during the scan, and did not realize she did not get to it).
But the E2 is good enough so I know I have follicles happening and that is what matters most in this crazy game... of what? hide and seek? pin the tail on the donkey? dungeons and dragons?

I just got noodle girl's affirming comment about needing to ask for information at this clinic, so I will continue to do so. I am used to being one of few, it is really odd to be one of so many.

Good for you for calling - those numbers sound pretty darned good to me, so I'm hoping that Right Ovary is working away in there, matching Lefty, and generally making beuatiful follicles.

Shall continue to stalk...

Wow, this clinic sounds way more like mine with the non-information (just the facts, ma'am). They just call and rattle off my new protocol and that's it! Argh - glad you were proactive and got more info, I'm finally getting savvy enough to do that too! Good luck!

So glad you called - it is sounding good.

E2 sounds good, I am glad that you are asking them for the info, so many clinics operate in the need to know, and they think we don't need to know....wishing you good progress at the next scan

I'm so suprised at the lack of information they share with you at this clinic. Not sure if that is the same everywhere, but I must say I would go insane. I have to know everything. Luckily my clinic is awesome and tells you right there at the scan how may follicles. But even better...my RE doesn't believe in doing all the E2 bloodwork...he says the u/s tells you all you need to know and the bloodwork is kind of redundant. Don't I juse LOVE him for that too...less needle pricks overall is always good for me.

Anyway...I am thrilled at your numbers and I'm sure right ovary is doing her thing for you. As for the bruises...I found I bruised hardly at all if I iced for 5 minutes before each shot and injected very slowly. I am praying for a great cycle for you.

So proud that you asserted yourself and called up. I was spoiled because my clinic had an online login site where you could see all of your results. It really helped me in my overinformationgeekitude. I think that E2 is excellent and am hoping for more good news in the days to come.

Good news and probably more good news that you didn't get. I hate that we are all experts and have to remind the staff at the clinics that we are in fact, experts and that they need to do a better job of feeding us the requisite info!! *snort* Thinking of you....and hoping that holding that person's baby is truly good luck. :)
