I went in this morning for my monitoring appointment and everything is looking good. Unfortunately, I have two leads on the right and three on the left and a gang of additional follicles that have not caught up. My E2 (estrogen) level is just under 1000. My nurse conferred with Dr. Grossman and Dr. Kiltz and I have to stay on meds another night or two. I am sooooo glad I did not sell off all of my additional meds or donate them ! I kept two boxes of Menopur and some of the Gonal -F and of course I still have some Lupron left in the vial I have been using. I am completely out of Omnitrope, but I am not flipping out about it. I took in three vials over the past 9 days. The HGH/Omnitrope was an added medication to help with egg quality and maturation.
I was all packed and ready for my 7 am departure tomorrow, and am kinda disappointed that I will not be leaving until this weekend. Not that I want to rush anything, I am hoping my follicles grow like gang busters overnight so that I will do my retrieval on Saturday and my transfer on Monday or Tuesday. I am pretty sure my mom has her next chemo therapy treatment on Wednesday, which means she has to come back on Tuesday. I just hope I am done by Tuesday so that we can head back to DC for her treatment. Again, I am not going to stress about it. It is what it is. My mom can just hop on the train back to DC if need be and I will just come the day after. Her chemo treatments are now 5 hours long so I do not stay with her anyway. I was just hoping she would be at the clinic when I put her grandbabies back in 🙂
Here is a picture from the monitoring screen today:
Time to go mix my meds and inject them ! More tomorrow after my monitoring appointment.
Patience is never my strong suit. I’m really hoping the extra time brings the other follies in line and you get a very robust crop at ER. Sending up more prayers in the meantime!
