I just had my second scan today (after 6 stim shots) and holy crap, now I know why I've been so uncomfortable lately! I'm to the point where sitting up is extremely uncomfortable -- I've been laying down, reclining, and standing up -- luckily I work at home, so I have that flexibility! Also, none of my pants fit anymore -- my only choices are sweatpants and skirts. I took pictures after 2 days of stims -- I'll take pics at the end and post them, so you can check out my enormous pooch.

So onto the details -- I learned that my clinic only measures the top 5 follies in each ovary -- I was wondering about that.

Right: 12,12,11,11,10 --- Total 14!!!
Left: 14,14,13,11,11 --- Total 16!!!

Lining --- 8mm. After my last u/s, my acupuncturist wanted me to come in again to work on my lining, since she felt it was too thin for the first u/s -- she did electrostim on my lower back, cupping on my lower back, heat treatments on my abdomen, and all the normal needle points. Apparently it worked a bit. I have another appointment this afternoon....woopee!

I'm still to continue the normal 300iu of Follistim, but will be starting Ganirelix and Menopur tomorrow. Looks like trigger will either be Monday or Tuesday next week!! Oh, and my E2 from last time was 236 -- I won't know what today's is until my appointment on Monday.

WOW! Very impressive bunch of follies you got there! I remember all too well that uncomfortable feeling. I better enjoy the bikinis this month b/c I have a feeling we will be doing a stim cycle next month. Congrats sweetie!

Holy crap!! That's some serious follie action you've got going on there. You're the dream IVF patient!! I think the most I ever had was my 2nd fresh cycle and there were about 25. I remember that super bloated feeling very well!

Since I guessed right on Sandy's trigger date, I might as well put my official guess in now for you. This one is borderline for me, but I'm going to put my prediction in as Monday night trigger with retrieval on Monday.

Woohoo it's getting exciting now! Keep us updated on the next scan...

What an egg-cellent scan I can't believe they are adding Menopur without dropping your Follistim - you're going to be popping a baseball team of follies Monday! I am saying trigger Monday night

Holy crap is right, Gillian! That's a lot of folly action there! Sounds like you'll have plenty to choose from.

I"m looking forward to hearing how all this works out for you!
