I received the call from my nurse yesterday afternoon (of course she called right when a meeting was starting) and she gave me some surprising news. I actually have 11 follicles but only the 7 were measurable. It disappointed me a bit that they were sitting there and not growing along with their buddies, but then I went back to being grateful that I have 7. My E2 had risen to 1,196 and as I thought, they did not change my medication and said to come back this morning. I was hoping for a little higher E2 but I guess that's ok. I'll have to google what the range should be.
I had my scan this morning and there wasn't a lot of change from yesterday which I think is a good thing. I don't want to go too fast. My largest follicle is measuring 19 and my smallest was 14 (I think). She also found another one on my left ovary that grew from yesterday to measure in at 10...so now I have 8 measurable follicles. I don't have any real expectations for that little one to catch up to the others so I'm still happy with my 7. I'm still seeing gobs of EWCM and my boobs are beginning to hurt more and more. I'm going to take those as good signs also. I'm just afraid of empty follicles...I had one last time.
Of course I'm getting ready to google what my E2 should be so we will see how my positive attitude handles that. :-)
I'm actually starting to get a bit nervous now that we are getting close and that I know that the ER will happen this weekend at some point. I'm rooting myself on and trying to stay calm at the same time. It's not easy. Especially when I'm so tired I feel like I can barely function at work properly. I'm dreaming so much that I don't feel rested in the mornings. I'm getting up about 15 minutes earlier than usual to give myself time for my injections and head to the clinic. It takes about 50 minutes to get there. And then I drive another hour to get to work (in traffic) and then I have to drive all the way home in the afternoon. It's definitely taking a toll on me.
Thank you all for your words of encouragement and for being my cheerleaders! I really appreciate it and it makes this process a little easier to deal with.
