First appointment went well!

So I know this will be above most of your heads, but I'll give it a try anyway.

Berilac and I are so excited, the net of it is: I am responding to the meds better than the doctors had hoped!

As I mentioned in a previous post, we are aiming to release 3-4 eggs this cycle in an attempt to find the "golden egg". Our doctor has been candid in communicating to us that we would most likely NOT respond well to the meds and we might not get more than 1 egg this cycle. Imagine our surprise when we did an ultrasound and found that my body is gearing up to release 5-6 eggs this cycle!!! This is wonderful news b/c we got more than 1, this is also great news b/c we can always slow down the meds to not actually release 5-6 eggs (so we're not worried about too many ... just yet!)

The RE was so excited about our response she LOWERED my dosage (rare for someone with my diagnoses!) So now I don't have to give myself as much of a shot each day, just 2/3 of what I was doing. I go back in on Monday morning for a check-in.

Things are looking good. We are just continuing to pray that we trust God in all that He's doing in our family. That we would recognize that this is all about Him and whether it's not becoming pregnant at all this cycle or conceiving septuplets (please Lord, NO!) that we would be obedient to Him and trust that He is in control.

This whole experience is such a rollercoaster - It's so nice to be enjoying the ride ... even if it's just for awhile.


  1. Great news! Glad to hear things are moving along well. I'm confused by all the medicalness of this whole process, but suffice it to say, I'm happy that your spirits are high and you are hopeful!
