I don't know what normal is. I was trying to read through some of the IVF threads to see if my appt sounded normal but lost patience and decided to just post.

So I think I am doing good. I think I had six follicles on one side and 7 on the other. I should have written this down. I am not good at remembering things. I think he said they were all small around 7 mm (do they measure in mm?).

I did the bloodwork this morning so I don't know how long it takes to get that done. I am to continue taking 300 iu of Gonal F today, tomorrow, and Wednesday. Then I go back for another ultrasound on Thursday.

So does this sound normal? It's still early and I don't know what to expect.

That sounds pretty good to me, Patty! The size sounds about right, too...my RE didn't want anything over 10mm at that first scan. Wahoo for a good start to youf cycle!!

I always had my appointments at 8:30, and they called with the bloodwork results around 1:00. Let us know when you get the call!

Soudns good to me. I didn't go in to get measured until a little later into my cycle, so my first scan my eggs were at 13mm. Also, each scan he found more eggs, so that may grow too. Keep us posted.

Okay they just called and want me to increase my Gonal-F to 375. My estrogen level was 70 (I made sure to ask her). Is this bad?

Mine was only 98 at the first check, so I don't think yours is awful. I bet is will make a big jump the next time you go back!

That sounds like a good number of follies. Yes, they do measure in mm. 7mm sounds about right after 2 days of injections. Your E2 level is better then mine was. Mine was 56 after 2 or 3 days of injections. I don't remember. That is the number to watch to make sure it does not get to high or not go high enough.

All in all I think your right on track. CONGRATS

Yay, Brynn! I was hoping that you'd chime in, because I was thinking that you had a bit of a slow start as well. I'd say things are looking good, Patty!!
