Day 11 & 12 – Acupuncture, Bloodwork, Ultrasound, Lupron, Menopur, Follistim & Dexamethasone

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

I had my ultrasound today and the five follicles I have that are responding to meds are growing. I have two on the left side at 18.8m and 12m.  On the right side I have three at 16.5m, 15.5m & 13m

Tonight was my last night for stimulating injections. The egg retrieval is scheduled for sometime on Friday morning.  The time is not yet confirmed. I have an ultrasound and bloodwork again tomorrow. We will know the scheduled time afterwards.

I am still feeling pretty crappy and spoke to Dr Burger about my symptoms. She thought maybe my estradiol levels were higher than the last two rounds of IVF. She looked at my chart and the highest level was at 1,500%. The estradiol levels for today came back at 1,520%

I am having a more positive feeling than I have had in weeks. All I know is that I am doing everything possible to make this work. I am even taking it easy at work so I do not get too stressed out.

Time will tell
