Thanks for checking in @Kelly70 - are are you feeling over the weekend. I'm thinking of you for the scan tomorrow.
On paper things went well, but when you break it down, I'm in just going to have to wait and see.
In 2 days, my follies did the following (fingers crossed Kelly70 that in four days yours do similar or even better!)
16mm > 19/20mm, 9mm > 14mm, 8mm > 13mm, 7mm > 12mm, 6mm > 9mm, 6mm > 6mm (yes we have a lazy one), Lining FINALLY improved a whopping 2mm - 30 4.1mm > 6mm
And a few tiny new follies cropped up, but there is NO chance they will catch up. Sharing all this in detail for anyone reading along who is about to start IVF - I wish I'd seen all this kind of detail in the past so hope it is helpful.
On paper it looks good in terms of follicle numbers, but the big issue is the space between the sizes. According to FS the lead follicle is the one nature selects and pushes forward, so it's the one with the best chance of quality. So she is really concerned that we don't lose it. She was all ready to trigger yesterday for EPU tomorrow morning (EEK) but the advantage of Sat morning was she wasn't in a rush so we talk it through really well.
Final results - we are scanning again tomorrow morning but 99% committed to triggering tomorrow night for EPU Wed. As a general rule, my follies don't seem to like letting go of an egg under 20mm, but she doesn't want the lead getting past 25/26mm, so I'm taking a gamble. I could get anything from 0 - 5 and 5 is extremely unlikely.
Next news is that the PGD question was moot as to get the trigger right on follicle size, I've missed the testing dates for this week. So I have the choice of freezing and testing later or just going for it. We've agreed that if I'm lucky enough to get 1 or 2 embryos to day 3 we're going to go for it.
So a lot to be grateful for, but also a lot that can go wrong and so big decisions that I've had to make on my own which was tough. I'm struggling with positive, so I'm just sticking with I'm so grateful to have a shot this cycle at anything and the rest is in the hands of fate. Good luck int the morning - I'm so anxious to hear. Menopur is half and half FSH and LH so I'm hoping the higher dose revved those follies up - it certainly seems to do the trick for me over straight FSH.
