I had my day 8 ultrasound appointment this am and I was number 2! Woohooo moving up in the world. 😉
Good news! The party is still on the right but the left has bought the keg and is selling tickets at the door. My follicles are responding to the medication which I am more than thrilled about. It makes it easier to get nightly injections when you know they are doing what they are meant to do!
Day 8 measurements:
9 on the Right Ovary: 16,16,16,15,15,14,13,13,11
8 on the Left Ovary: 13, 11, 11, 11, 10, 10, 10, 10
Next step is to continue tonight and tomorrow night taking the same dose of meds as I have been taking. We will go to the doctor on Saturday and Sunday morning to give more blood and get an ultrasound. However we will bring my meds both days and I may possibly get shots in the morning as well as the evening. Based on what they see they will give us instructions, but it looks like our retrieval day will be either Monday or Tuesday. 🙂
How many days in: 8
Shots given and amount: Gonal-F 75IU (first) Menopur 75IU (second) AND Ganirelix 250 mcg (third)

Sleep: Didn’t sleep well, was really hot. Doesn’t help that our building refuses to turn on the air conditioning until May 15th. Thanks.
