Day 9 of stims, and things looked much better at my monitoring appointment this morning. My favorite nurse was doing the ultrasound, which I was initially a little worried about since my RE has done all the other ones. But she went really slowly and showed us everything, which was really nice.
Left ovary is doing great: One at 21.9, one at 18.8, two in the sixteens, and four in the thirteens. There are a few under ten, so there's still a chance that one of them will suddenly catch up.
Right ovary still has the three strong contenders: One at 23.6 andwo in the sixteens. Interestingly, though, today we were able to see about 5 under ten. I am really hoping one or two of those grow and give us an egg, but either way, we are in a much better position than we were earlier this week.
Endometrium is at 8.8, and E2 is 1422.
I go back for another ultrasound tomorrow and think they will have me trigger tomorrow night, which would put retrieval on Tuesday.
My hope for this cycle has returned. A and I even bought a "Cookies for Santa" plate that we found on sale today...maybe the purchase had more to do with it being 75% off, but it's nice to be back in the mindframe of being able to buy things to use when we have kids. Really hoping that "when" is soon!
