I always update in the IVF subforum, but I figured I'd throw it out here too!

I had another u/s and b/w this morning. My RE had to be present during this u/s because (and no one told me this before), my right ovary is hidden a little bit behind my uterus. They needed him to see how things were progressing and get his opinion on whether or not he'd be able to get to the follies on that side during retrieval. Luckily, he is pretty confident he will.

After ordering 2 more 300iu Gonal-F pens (I've taken 300iu for the last 6 days), I'm told today that we need to slow things down and I am dropping to only 100iu of it tonight finally (so boo for expensive meds that may not be used). My E2 numbers went up.. a LOT, and I was told this wasn't a bad thing (I'm a worrier). I go in tomorrow morning for only bloodwork. I will continue my Cetrotide and we're hoping some smaller follies start to catch up.

My E2 today was 1,442.. My follie measurements:

1 have two 15's, one 13, four 12's, five 11's, two 10's, and 9 smaller ones... Praying that some of the smaller ones bump up while we're coasting with the lower Gonal-F...

Things should be getting close if those bigger ones bulk up a little and bring a few smaller ones with them!

Have you ever had difficulty seeing that hidden ovary? That might explain a few things if you have!

I totally get that need for some follies to start growing. I wish there was magical dust that really did exist that you could just sprinkle in your tea to make them grow instead of taking stupid shots and medications.

No, we've never had an issues with the right ovary before. I think it's because a majority of the 20+ follies that are growing are actually on that right side that it became a potential issue.

I wish there was magical dust, too.

Thanks, ladies! Hopefully the E2 numbers will make my RE happy tomorrow. I think today's jump threw him off a bit. Fingers crossed. I'd LOVE to be triggering Monday or so.... but I have no idea if that's going to be even possible yet!
