Appointment #2

This morning went well. I was in and out without any wait. My right ovary has about 8-10 follies and my left ovary has 5 follies. Lining was really good. They called this afternoon with the results of my bloodwork. It turns out the my estrogen level (EL) was pretty high. They changed my dosage of follistim from 225 units to 75 units. I'm not sure what all this means. I have researched with Dr. Goggle. Apparently, if my EL is too high and does not come down they may cancel my cycle. That would absolutely suck. However, I have faith that it will come down. The thing that does piss me off is the fact I told them that I am sensitive to these meds. I overstimulated on the lowest dosage of clomid for pete's sake! Anyways, I am not that concerned. I may be naive but I have hope that this will all work out.

On a good note, I am now on spring break! My university completely shuts down for spring break! I don't have to go to work until March 12th!!! I needed this break... Work has been crazy busy with investgations!

Now, I am charging my nook in preparation of this horrible storm coming thru this evening. I have our tornado shelter all prepped! For those in the path of the storm stay safe! Ben is working tonight so hopefully nothing goes through the city!


  1. Hope you guys are safe after the storms yesterday. Not sure where you're at by looks like parts of KY got hit really hard. We're north of Cincy and were lucky that we were in the clear. Hope you guys were too.

  2. We are all safe and sound! Thank you for asking. We had some minor hail damage but nothing to complain about.

  3. Happy SB! How exciting. Great follie count! I just know your E2 will level out soon...keep us posted.

  4. It's so great to read your story, to see that you had 15 follicles at this appt, then 28 overall and also how many of them made it to fertilization. It's helping me set my expectations. I have my first ultrasound tomorrow (after 5 days of stims). Thanks for sharing.
