Yesterday morning I had a follow-up ulstrasound appointment. My previous appointment was Wednesday, at which I had an 11mm follie on my right and an 8mm follie on my left.
Luckily on the weekends, hardly anyone is working at my doctor's office. This includes residents or whatever you call doctors-in-training. So no Oaf wanding for me! Yay!
So yesterday I had a 9 and 10 on the right, and an 8 and 13.6 on the left.
Yes, you are reading that correctly. The 11 that was previously residing on my right ovary decided to A) pack up and head out, B) shrivel up a bit or C) migrate to the left. Ok, I realize A and C are silly options. So I guess it shrunk. If that doesn't make you feel like you are getting old, I don't know what will!
My RE said something about the 13.6 "winning the race". I didn't ask, but I really hope he doesn't think I will only ovulate one mature egg this time! I am REALLY hoping I get all 4 mature. Does that make me sound greedy? Or irresponsible? I hope not. We've just NEVER had a positive result with one egg, and our only cycle with two was not positive either. I want as much of a chance as I can get!
I am continuing on the vial-and-a-half of Bravelle for another couple of days, and I will return to the RE on Tuesday morning.
For some light reading yesterday, I was browsing through the big informational booklet(?) thing that came with my Bravelle. I sort of knew this in the back of my head, but did you know that FSH is derived from the urine of post-menopausal women? Yep! Thanks for the pee, grannies! So weird....
Also, in that booklet, there were tables and charts of studies they've done with Bravelle. There was one study conducted on 72 women that resulted in several multiple pregnancies, but one of them was sextuplets!!! Yikes! But in those studies, they give a really high dose of Bravelle initially (like 3 or 4 times what I'm using). Interesting nonetheless!
Today's musical selection is by The Decemberists, and entitled "The Wanting Comes in Waves / Repaid". Enjoy! :)
