So tonight we start our treatments! (I say 'we' as if Berilac is actually doing something other than cringing as I give myself a shot! Actually, he offered to "help" by giving me the shot, but I'm such a control freak - there's no way I will be someone else's pin cushion!)
So tonight I take my first shot.
We went into the doctor today for our day 3 baseline ultrasound and she found more than 12 antral follicles (in one of my older posts I lamented about my lack of antral follicles - that count of 8 pointed toward diminished ovarian reserve) Well, the RE was so encouraged this month to see an AFC of more than 10. She even stopped counting she saw so many. AND she didn't investigate deeply, hunting/scouring for these - she saw them from a distance and stopped counting! She was really optimistic & excited.
So positive about the results that she lowered my initial injects dose! Which I am grateful for. As I mentioned earlier, we are trying to be conservative in this stimulation - so I am on 150iu of Follistim each day. I go in for a follow up on Saturday morning to see how the drugs are affecting my developing follies!
Lord, we pray for good quality eggs!!
In a Nutshell.
