I could set this post up by saying that I started getting nervous last night. I started to prepare myself for the possibility that everything could all be over at today’s ultrasound. I could be cancelled. It could all be over. It’s happened before.
But I won’t do that. Instead I will cut to the chase and let you know the results of today’s CD9 ultrasound.
Holy Crap. I’ve never seen so many follicles before. My left ovary had three measurable follicles with three or four to hopefully catch up. My right ovary (always the overachiever) had seven or eight measurable follicles.
I can’t believe it.
I’ve learned the hard way that with IVF you have to take it one day at a time. Each milestone passed is just another hurdle crossed and no indication of future success. I’ve read that sometimes ladies get more follicles with HGH, but the quality is still not improved. Quantity means nothing without quality.
But all that being said, this is the best response I’ve had at this point in the game so I can’t help but feel somewhat optimistic.
If anything, it beats being cancelled.
