It's not over yet

I went in today to the doc expecting to have the plan laid out and expecting that we would do the IUI or ER on Wednesday. I've already been giving myself the shots for 9 days and frankly, I'm ready for them to be done. But that's not to be.

I have 7 good sized follies - mostly around 12 and 13mm. They want me to stim for 2 more days and then go back on Wednesday. On Wed, the final decision will be made. Everyone seemed optimistic. They said that 7 was great for my age and that we'll know for sure on Wednesday if we should go for egg retrieval. I guess that goal of having 10 or more follies was not set in stone.

I left happy. I was pretty certain that they were going to recommend IUI but the door is still open for IVF. They all agreed (2 RE's and 1 PA) that this is my best cycle yet.

So, it's not over yet. Wish good thoughts for me!

That is great news! I'm glad you are feeling better about your follie performance.

I've only commented once before, but I read regularly. I'm so happy that you have 7! That's a great #, and not just because it's lucky. Anyway, I'm rooting for you!

I'm so happy for you...IVF is very doable with 7 good follies...I've seen girls go to ER with 3 or 5. Best of luck the next couple days - I hope you get good news on Wednesday!

HI .. I am in the exact same situation on this very day. I went in this morning and have only 7 follicles. I'm doing IVF and will trigger tomorrow (most likely). My clinic doesn't seem too concerned. I'm hoping for both of us. Good Luck.
