IVF#2: After 3 Days of Stims

Things have been busy over here at the mamaetmaman household. My in-laws visited for the weekend, which is normally very nice, but I was feeling kind of hormonal (literally), and would’ve preferred some time alone with my wife. It’s weird, I have been feeling this internal restlessness, which has been making me yearn to travel more than I already do. It feels like a passion burning inside of me. Except that I’m kind of in the middle of an IVF stimulation cycle, and the only things even remotely interesting inside of me are these ovaries, which I am starting to feel.

Today’s Stats: (after 3 days of 225 units of Gonal-F)

Uterine lining: 6 mm
Follicles: 5 on L, 6 on R, all very small

They’re bumping up my meds tonight to 250 units of Gonal-F, and I go in on Wednesday for more monitoring. Tomorrow, I have an intralipid infusion. Fun times.

Grow grow grow little follicles!
