IVF underway

Rather than flooding the board with multiple posts about my cycle, considering its not your usual TTCAM, I will just have this thread and update here as needed.

I had my first u/s today. The call-back nurse said to take my last BCP tonight and let AF arrive this weekend (should be brief since she said my lining was expectedly thin). I will start stimming on Monday: 175IU Follistim

Yeah, it was scary to be so "out of it" for so long. I couldn't say what day it was and was really confused. What brought me around was when they wheeled me down for a CT scan. I realized it was radiation and flatly refused it. I said to the Dr "I can't do that. These are $18K eggs. Really?"
I'm on modified bedrest until well after the ET, so about 2 weeks. DH is hovering and helpful.

I got the afternoon call. My estradiol level is 3,400. They're worried about hyperstimulation, but my follies are still not mature yet. I am not to take anymore FSH, gotta cut the menopur in half tonight, and go back in the morning for another scan. The nurse said I'll be going everyday now.

My Estradiol levels always got really high too. Lots and lots of small follicles. Textbook for PCOS. I have been canceled a time or two over E2 levels. I am so sorry about your fall and that this cycle is getting kind of crazy. :(

Oh my gosh, Chouli! I'm glad that DH found you and got you to the ER! No more forgetting protocol!

Well, at this point, my follicles are getting big and my abd is so tender that I am pretty much couch-bound. I went in this morning for my, now daily, follie scan and ED2. He stopped counting and measuring at 23 follies. There're at least 7 between 16 and 17mm, and the rest are between 11 and 15. Still growing. My pants are tight.

Yeah, its a lot. They slowed my stim down. No more follistim and only a half dose of menopur. My DH wants me to be immobile. I had to send him and SS to the gym and errands just to get some alone time! :smileyvery-happy:

When I went for my follie scan this morning the nurse commented on how slowly and gingerly I walked. Then she saw the screen and said, "now I know why you walk like that! Wow!"

I have a pic of my chin stitches, but iVillage isn't letting me attach it.
