We've done three days of GonalF at 375iu. I didn't know quite what to expect, but it wasn't this. Only four follicles: 6mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm (two on each ovary). Even the nurse had a hard time disguising her lack of enthusiasm for this level of response to stims. When the blood work came back, my estrogen levels had actually dropped.
Next three nights' shots will be 225 GonalF plus 225 Menopur. Second monitoring appointment on Friday morning. Please let there be a few more follicles brewing, all at nice even sizes!
And while I was having my pity party, a whole boatload of my Twitter girls were enduring heartbreak and loss beyond reason. Please do whatever it is you do (pray, meditate, wish on a star) and send some love out to @LeLeIsMe, @MaternalTurtle, @BroodyIVFMummy and @MyCheapViolin.
