Day 9 Stims Check

We returned to the RE again yesterday morning.

  • e2:  2526
  • p4:  1.5
My follicles looked great and they adjusted my injections.  We only took 75 units of Menopur and 5 units of Lupron last night.

We returned again this morning for yet another ultrasound and labs. Many of my follicles are maturing, and my lining is thick at 0.8 cm!  It should be happening any day now.

I am waiting for Janet to call me and let us know if we are going to "trigger" tonight or tomorrow night.  I'm secretly hoping that we'll "trigger" tonight and have the Egg Retrieval on Wednesday.
When I say "trigger," I'm referring to the hCG injection.  Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is the pregnancy hormone.  In IUI and IVF cycles, the RE instructs you to administer a dose of hCG to trigger the eggs to release.  
Waiting another day does not make much of a difference at this point, but I'm ready to get this show on the road.

My follicles look like they're smiling!

I will update as I know more!
Continue to check my IVF Schedule for updates as well!


  1. Glad everything is going well!! I hope that continues!!

  2. Sounds like everything is going well, and I agree, you follies look like they are smiling!

  3. Holy cow! They do look like they are smiling! SO glad this is going great!

  4. Glad everything looks so great, can't wait to hear another update, hope you're triggering soon!!


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
