(Or: Still Overachieving.)
(Or: Cycle Update.)
Had my day 6 wanding and bloodwork at my clinic this morning.
It’s the first ultrasound of the cycle, so I was interested to see what was going on.
I can FEEL my ovaries, though it’s not uncomfortable yet – so I sort of knew that things were happening in there.
Turns out my ovaries are totally young at heart.
I have approximately 15 measurable follicles and scores others which are not quite measurable yet.
The ultrasound tech told me: You know, when I see someone’s age on their flow sheet, I have a bit of an expectation of what I’ll see. You totally surprised me, given your age. Your ovaries are MUCH younger than 35.
So yeah. Ovaries are doing well.
The biggest follicle is only 15mm, though, so I have a few days left yet.
But it probably means my E2 has risen significantly as well. I’m thinking it’s between 1200-1500 right now, but given how many follicles I had? Maybe higher.
I’m half expecting a call today telling me to scale back my dosage today.
Wouldn’t it be funny, at 35, to be cancelled for overstimulation?
I’ll keep you all posted when I hear from my clinic.
Eeek – time got away from me. My clinic called at lunch, everything looks “great.” E2 today was 866.
I’m to keep doing what I’m doing and go back in on Sunday.
When I asked about overstimulation, my nurse said No worries on that yet. Eat more protein and keep hydrated.
So as of right now, things are looking pretty good.
