Today was another day for dual monitoring appointments.
I went into mine a tad nervous, it was at this point in the last cycle that they discovered the fluid and although it had resolved it's self - I was still worried. Well, I got a great update - NO FLUID and a nice lining of 12.3 mm with a triple stripe pattern (8+ is ideal). My estrogen levels look good too (238). So, my meds stay as is to keep me in a holding pattern till IM's retrieval.
K also went in today - she's on day 5 of stims and has had a couple of acupuncture appointments so far. Her E2 levels are high in comparison to previous cycles - estrogen levels are an indicator of follicle growth - so hopefully these numbers prove to show a nice number of maturing follies over the next few days. At today's appointment there were 9 follicles present measuring 8-10mm with a few additional smaller ones. She'll continue to be watched every couple of days and once these reach 18-20mm K will trigger for retrieval, likely sometime the middle of next week. The transfer will then be 3-5 days later.
We are getting close and things are looking good - positive vibes appreciated!
