I have about 13 follicles according to my ultrasound I had this morning. I was pretty excited to see that many so fast since I just started my superovlation drugs on Saturday. They are up'ing my Gonal F injections so my already sore ovaries will feel even better tomorrow! LOL

Does anyone know if I have the potential to have more follicles by retrieval day? Or what I saw today on the ultrasound is what I have to work with?

Good luck girl! I think it is possible for the number to change. Sometimes they mature at different rates. One cycle I had two follicles and a few small ones. There was one that was dominantly larger than the rest, but when I went back in two days I had two dominant follicles that were the same size.

Sounds like things are going great so far and you are in great hands.

Sounds like things are going pretty well for you!

What day of your cycle are you on?

For me, I started Gonal-F on cycle day 3 and would then go in for a scan somewhere around day 9 or 10. Sometimes I would get additional follicles between the 1st and 2nd scan, but not many more. Mostly they are just growing in size from that point. I had around 15 follies my first fresh cycle (10 of which produced good eggs and 9 fertilized). My second time around I had about 25 follies and got about 13 eggs out of that 9 of which fertilized.

I'm getting excited for you, I really hope you get your BFP? Any idea on transfer date yet? We may end up in the 2ww together.

I am not sure if you checked out my post to you under my "Getting Closer" topic but I did write to you there too. Today I am on CD 4 (kind of.) I started Lupron on the 6th of this month (I am doing the long protocol for injections) and waited 14 days for a period that never showed. Last week on Tuesday I went in for my first ultrasound and bloodwork to confirm my system was shut down. Then, I had to wait for this past Saturday to start my superovulation drugs because of the Thanksgiving holiday. On Saturday and SUnday I had to inject Lupron, Gonal F, and Repronex. The Repronex was taken for only two days. I am still taking the Gonal F and Lupron. I have a third ultrasound on Thursday morning.

What CD are you on and when do you think you might have your retrieval? I think it would be great if we end up having our retrieval close together!

Oopsie! Sorry about that - I can be quite the spazz when it comes to finding responses to my posts!

I'm on CD8 right now. I'm on a frozen cycle though, so no retrieval for me. I have a scan on Thursday to see how my lining is doing and to make sure all is well after my tube removal surgery 2 weeks ago. Only meds for me right now are estrace, aspiring and follic acid. I am guessing my transfer will be somewhere around Dec 4, but I should have a more clear picture of that after my Thursday appointment.

Yours is definitely a different protocal then what I had for my fresh cycles, but it does sound like we should end up with transfers close to the same time - I may be a few days ahead of you.

Good luck and keep me posted!



Okay, I'm officially having a blonde day....

I'm actually on CD10 (good thing I have a ticker lmao). The reason I'm confused this time around is I didn't start my estrace until CD3 and normally I would've started CD1. All I know is you have to have 10 days of the estrace before the first scan which is on Thursday. Hopefully they'll give me an idea of transfer date then, but I still figure it should be around Dec 4.

Oh my gosh! I am so excited for you. Definately let me know how it goes on Thursday and what they say your transfer date may be. I should get more of an idea myself as I have another ultrasound the same day. I know you will be a few days ahead of me but at least we won't be in the 2WW alone!

You crack me up!!!!
