More Good News

This morning I went back in for my monitoring appointment. I was unusually relaxed. As I sat there waiting for the nurse manager to come in to do my ultrasound, I was trying to figure out what cycle day I was on. Like I said in a previous post, if this was any other cycle I would know without any hesitation as every ounce of my being would be dedicated to my cycle, in other words, I would be obsessed. This cycle is completely different though. I finally figured out the today is CD20. I should have had my procedure by now and should be in my TWW, but I'm not and I am okay with that. This cycle is not controlling my life. No more! The nurse manager finally came in and started my ultrasound. Since this has been what I have coined "the cycle from hell" my expectations are really low and I am just kinda going with the flow. She always starts with my lining as that is  my our biggest source of frustration. She was hovering over it and I could tell right away that it looked different. It still had that glowing triple stripe but it looked different. I watched as she measured it...6.62mm! I know that this doesn't seem like much but for my previous IVF cycles my lining never made it above 6.5 on day of trigger and now I am already over that! Even with my IUIs my lining maxed out at 7.2. Am I going to make it to a 7 this time? God, that would be great! She then continues on and measures each ovary. As she is doing this I can see all of the follicles. There are a bunch of them. She started measuring each individual follicle and stopped measuring at 12. I have at least 12 follicles ranging from 12mm to 14.5mm. My E2 also more than tripled from 176 to 543. I go back Monday morning to check things again. I am continuing with 600 of Follistim and 250 of Ganirelix until then. I couldn't be happier!
