So my first follicle check this morning was some good some bad – but mostly bad.
Let me start off by telling you what we would have seen in a perfect world:
8mm lining, two 18mm follicles with a few smaller ones.
Now let me tell you what we saw:
8.5mm lining (that was the “some good” part) and multiple small follicles on either side.
The Estrace is doing its job. RE said my lining was wonderful. Although (forgive my paranoia here) I listen very carefully to what he tells the nurse to write down and I know most women can’t decode the verbiage but I can! He said it was 8.5 grade C. The 8.5 is GREAT. The grade C? Not so much. Optimal is grade A. I am hoping that the uterine grade corresponds with follicle growth and how close to O you are and that it will be grade A by Thursday and hopefully be accompanied by a follicle or two.
The lack of follicles really concerns me. Not because I am worried that they are growing to slow because it really doesn’t matter if it takes them three weeks to grow as long as you have mature follicles when you trigger so if it takes them until the end of the week, so be it. I am okay with that. What concerns me is that I am not going to respond to the meds at all and that they won’t grow at all. Then we’d have to cancel this cycle all together.
This has never happened to me before. I always have at least one!
So now three more nights of injections at $65 per night and another follicle check on Thursday ($300 more dollars). I thought I’d be having an IUI on Thursday and now I’ll be lucky to have an IUI at all. :(
