Follicle scan today showed 25 follicles
most measuring 14mm to 17mm
Another ultrasound a lab is set for tomorrow
and it is looking like our retrieval will be
Thursday July 16th 2015!
So far (knock on wood) I've felt pretty good!
around day 5 I started using a heating pad which seems
to be helping quite a bit.
I would describe the full ovary pain like a runners cramp
just a constant pain in your side.
I read somewhere yesterday that
when your follicles are around 18mm they
are the size of green grapes...
So all I can picture now are a bunch of grapes
hanging out in my pelvis.
My right side is still the leader with 16 follies!
I feel good about these numbers.
I know this is a banking / freeze all cycle
and I'm doing a pretty good job of not obsessing
over everything, like how many I have
how big they are, what the averages are,
how big their supposed to be..ect..
I'm just kind of "going with the flow"
Day 9 I started to feel a little like I could cry on command.
or at something as stupid as a tide commercial.
but I feel like those emotions come and go.
I definitely don't feel crazy like I did that one time
I took 250mg of clomid in one month %-O
I'm planning to take Wednesday off work to relax
Then Thursday Scott and I will go in together
and about an hour later my mom will meet us there.
The procedure should take about 15-20 minutes
and then an hour plus in recovery.
After that I will be going to my parents to sleep
while Scott heads back to work.
I also took Friday off to just chill and make sure
my body is fully recovered.
I will also be taking a medication to prevent OHSS
Dr. G said before he started using this med,
he would have 2 or more cases of OHSS a month
now that he has it on bored he hasn't had a case in 2 years!
Science is pretty freaking cool.
I'll try and update tomorrow too and then
I'll be back on Thursday or Friday to let you know
how many eggs were retrieved! :)
