Ok so my donor had her first follie check today. She started stims on 12/1, so technically, had only taken 3 doses by the time of her u/s this morning...today is day 4. She had 12 small follies, which is totally normal. Her e2 is only 84, and they want it 100-200 by this point, so they are upping her Gonal F dose to 450 from 300.
I am nervous. I knew this donor would likely not be the donor to produce 20+ eggs, based on her antral follie count (14) but now her e2 isn't rising properly??? This is JUST MY LUCK. the nurse said that it's still sooo early and that med adjustments are totally common, but still. I feel like i should practically start looking for a new donor for next cycle now. I know you will all say I am crazy, but I'm just nervous...why can't this every be easy?
We'll know more on MOnday....
Curious- how many eggs have you all retrieved in donor cycles before and if you remember, what were her counts leading up to ER??
AMBER- I TOLD you I wouldn't not be able to find out details!!!!!!!!!
