Day six scan

Wow, I'm already on day six! I've been so busy with work that I didn't post much at all in the last couple of days, but I'll catch up today for sure.

I love you my friends, thanks for stopping by, your support is worth gold at this stage.

So this morning I went in for my second scan. Things look good I'm told. I've about 6-7 follicles per ovary varying in size from 14mm to 8mm. They are checking my E2 also, but if I don't hear anything I'll be staying on my current Puregon dose of 150uL and I have started the antagonist today too. So whatever I have done with that injection on day 2 didn't matter too much! Thank you for reassuring me nonetheless! Next appointment is for Friday, the nurse said I am on schedule and ER should be on the 3rd of February. Lining also look good at 7.2 mm and already trilaminar! Go lining go!

Also I reminded her about the possibility of doing the transfer with a smaller volume (I have read that ectopic pregnancies with IVF could correlate with the volume of medium used to transfer the embryos). Well, I got a call from the chief embryologist, lovely Scottish guy, always very helpful and understanding. He said he was going to make sure no more than the minimum volume was going to be used for my transfer. Let's get there first!

Overall I feel well, a bit tired, but that's normal, I'm really working hard these days. I'm going to yoga again this evening and I can't wait! Meditation should start soon too!!

  2. It sounds like good news all around. Keep growing follies, and be mature enough to make it to transfer day, please.

    Yoga and meditation are awesome things to do right now. I'm glad you are doing something that will not only help relax you and your body, but also prepare you for ER and transfer.

    Thinking of you!

  3. Yeah. I'm so excited everything is going well.
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
    I do well at yoga but the meditation is harder for me for some reason.

  9. That's good news about your follies growing nice and steadily. And your lining seems to be gearing up to the challenge, too. Have a relaxing time at yoga class!

  11. I've been following your blog for awhile and just wanted to say that I'm crossing everything for you. You're nearly there and it sounds like you're responding really well to the Puregon. Will be thinking very, very good thoughts on the 3rd!

  13. Great follie growth! Yay! And your lining is nearly there too. ER next week already?! Awesome. I think the yoga and meditation will help you through the 2ww (although I promise I'll be over here giddy with excitement and anxiety for you!).
