So far so good...I think....

1st follie check today...on NYC marathon day! Luckily, we escaped from NY without incident. The road closures didn't really affect us. I guess that's the good thing about early morning monitoring hours.

I am CD 8 today. It looks like things are progressing just like last time which was my goal, actually. I am 7 months older (and 5 months away from 40...yikes!) so I told myself if my ovaries could produce a similar result as last time I would be happy. Let's just hope the chromosomes are good!

My E2 was 189 on CD6/Friday. Last time it was 212 on CD6 so we're not that far off. I did one less patch this time so that makes sense. The only reason I know is because I was able to sneak a peek at the computer screen before the RE of the day came in. How sad is it that I am not in the medical field yet I know exactly how to read the information? When I 1st started joining IVF message boards I used to marvel at how some of the women could predict when they might trigger or how many eggs they might get, etc. I now know that practice makes perfect, unfortunately.

Anyway, today I had 3 follies (just under 10 mm) ahead of about 6 smaller ones but they are not trailing by much. 9 follies is pretty good for an old lady. Now, if they can grow at the same rate I will be very happy! The RE said I was doing very well...I am on my way and we just have to wait for them to grow. I must be doing better than expected because they cut my Follistim by 125 units. Time will tell. Back tomorrow for more......

Slow and steady wins the race with this protocol. Pun totally intended.


  1. YAY!! Good job ovaries!! Slow, steady and STRESS free wins the race! Thinking of you. XOXO

  2. so glad your 1st check went well! hope today went just as well!
