Sneaking a moment from work to say:

E2 2100
LH 7.16
Progesterone 0.82

R: 16.6, 14.9, 13.2, 12.6, 12.4
L: 16.27, 15.75, 12.77
lining good
Dose increases to 375 follistim tonight
same menopur
same mestinon

and now! with added UTI! (Macrobid) Fucking A.

I go back tomorrow morning for a recheck.
Maybe trigger on friday night for sunday (superbowl!) retrieval-- (hope so! it would minimize work impact)

I am very happy with my response and I am worried about all of it. (those two big ones, will they hog the FSH?, what if there are no eggs? what if........)
so, all is as it should be or at least as it always is. I am very happy to have 8 in play at this point so I'll try to shush.
Besides, I have firepee to distract me.

Firepee is bad... your follies look awesome. Try not to worry (coming from the world's best at that!) I know it is hard. Sending all the best wishes for success!!!

Great news!

I think the fact that you are a veteran is tainting your view of your results. Goodness woman you have 8 and that is not even the day of retrieval. This is going to be it.

I don't think there is such a thing as hogging the FSH. And if you look at it you have 4 big follicles not two.

Grow eggies grow!!!

Yay!! Oh - Kate - I have it all crossed and I am hoping with all of my might for you.

Michele said...

A Super Bowl baby! Woo Hoo! I'll be thinking of you and hoping that is the case!

Melissa said...

I'm so excited for you!! I'll send extra special thoughts your way on Sunday.

Jem said...

Those are some good looking stats!

Grow follies, grow!

Eight is great! It's so far removed from zero that it isn't even in the same zip code! Sorry to hear about the firepee... ouch. But everything else sounds perfect. Even an ER on Sunday would be perfect, since traffic will be a lot less stressful and you won't have to worry about missing work. I hope you can tune out the worrisome thoughts and focus on how text-book-ish your response is this time. Way to go ovaries, and way to go Kate for all the shots and ickiness that have gone into this.

I'm sorry about the firepee, so painful! Hope it gets better soon

So glad about the good news! (Except for the firepee.) Hope it all goes well on Sunday.

Eight is fantastic! (Firepee is not, though the description made me laugh ruefully & nod in agreement.) Hoping for a perfect, Superbowl retrieval for you!

Retrieval > Super Bowl

Firepee is no good unless you are in some type of bizarre pokemon style match against an ice monster.

Those eight are looking great! Don't worry about which one gets the whatevah who dee dooo. What you need is a few great eggs that will turn into a fabulous embryo that will turn into a spectacular fetus that will turn into a wonderful kate+darling baby.

Woot woot, you're looking great! That is a fabulous E2 for 8 follies! You want your E2 to be @ 200 per mature follie and yours is blowing that out of the water and I'd bet my handbag that there are a couple more follies in there that that didn't see on u/s. I bet you'll get double-digit eggs at retrieval.

And your biggest follies are definitely not going to bully their way to more FSH. Usually there's a much bigger discrepancy between the biggest 1 or 2 follies than the followers - for example, my biggest was 20mm at trigger, whereas the rest were 13-15mm, but they had no problem retrieving all of them. Yours are so nicely in synch, and with E2 like that, I'm sure they'll all be mature and plump at ER.
