We are on stim day 4 and just had our first ultrasound to see how the follicles are doing...needless to say, it didn't go as we had hoped. My right ovary looked pretty useless. There was one big follicle (16 x 12 mm), and then 2-3 little ones (less than 10 mm). My left ovary looked a little better. There was one around 11 mm, then maybe five more that were under 10 mm. Right now, the doctor thinks we might have around 10 eggs at retrieval...but that seemed like a hopeful estimate, and he could definitely tell I was disappointed and didn't want to upset me further.
The current plan is to start on Ganirelix on Wednesday to keep the big guys from getting too big. We have another ultrasound on Thursday to see if things are progressing.
I feel so defeated. I can't even stim correctly. I am so worried that we will not have enough to make it to retrieval, and that even if we do, no embryos will make it to transfer. I feel so stupid...a few weeks ago I was worried about what we would do with the "extra," and now I may not even make it to retrieval. The plan we paid for includes a fresh and frozen cycle so you have some peace of mind knowing that if the fresh doesn't work you have already paid for the frozen, but at this rate it's unlikely we would have any frozen embryos.
Hoping for much better results on Thursday.
