First Ultrasound Results ...

My computer is having connection issues - so I'm posting quickly from Berilac's computer ... and it doesn't have my protocol blog document on it ... so you'll have to wait for that.

One important piece of information for you regarding this IVF cycle: we are not doing an embryo transfer this cycle - so ironically we are not trying to get pregnant this cycle - more to come on this front.


Ultrasound update: Went in yesterday for a CD7 ultrasound and we found 13 follicles developing - from 7 to 15mm in size. I'll be soaking my feet tonight ;-) My E2 came back at almost 6000 - not sure how it can be so high given that I don't have a lot of follicles - perhaps it means that I'll have a lot more come Monday? Anyhow, I asked my doctor about it, he said that he's not concerned - he said that during pregnancy your estrogen levels get in excess of 80,000. And given that I don't have a lot of follicles - he's not too worried about OHSS.

I go in for my next ultrasound tomorrow at 11A - I'll keep you posted.


  1. Sounds like you are responding really well and your doc sounds happy with everything.

    I can't wait to hear how everything looks tomorrow and to also here more about your protocol.

    Hope you are feeling great. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way!

  2. I can't wait to see hear your protocol and way to go on the follies!! I hope you get tons of really good ones!

  3. Great update! Hope you have continued success with the follicle growth. How many is your RE hoping for?

  4. Hey Polly, good to hear that you're all determined and finding the strength to fight the fight.

    I've decided to stop blogging for a while. It's gone too painful... so, if you'd still like to keep in contact, i can be contacted at

    But I'll keep popping in to check in on you.
