Steady progress

Things are coming along.

So before I headed out to Colorado I was being monitored locally, they measured 15 follicles. Then on Saturday at my first CCRM appt the count was 13. Today the tech didn't want to get my hopes up - and they measured 11 follies from ~1.0 to 1.8.

My original schedule showed a Friday retrieval, but since they started my antagonist 2 days early, we thought maybe my retrieval would be 2 days early. Well, I didn't get instructed to trigger tonight so it's at least Thursday or later ...

I'm not sure how many to expect, but if quantity isn't going to happen, I will surely be praying for quality!

Berilac and I are nudging our way closer and closer to deciding to do a fresh cycle. Please continue praying for us - for peace and of course for the blessing of children.

  2. I will be praying for you guys too! I hope there is some great quality growing in there. A fresh transfer is just so much more fun...so much more hope right away!(Not expressing a preference but purely from a fun and a 'why am I doing this?' perspective!).

  5. Dear Polly, this is a belated response to a comment you left on my blog. Am I going to test?

    I am scared of buying a HPT. I am scared it would jinx me.

    I am only flirting with the possibilities, scared of the reality when it eventually happens!

    Can't say anything though...can't predict anything though!

    All the very best for everything!

  8. Thanks for the update. Sounds like things are going well and I will send you all my good thoughts. The decision to go with a fresh cycle is one only you and Berilac can decide, taking into account your doctor's advice. It seems like the testing will ensure that you start out with healthy eggs, but I understand there are risks associated with this process but there are also risks with the fresh cycle. Nothing is easy is it! I'm sure you will decide what is best for you and Berilac.
