A quick update. Things are moving along. Slowly. I had to order more follistim and my retrieval will likely be pushed out a few days. But my little follies are growing. I'm just happy that we're seeing daily progress.
Day 6 stim check
left: 6mm, 4mm, 3.2mm
right: 11mm, 9mm, 8mm, 7mm, 6mm
Day 8 stim check
left: 7.5mm, 4mm
right: 15mm, 11mm, 11mm, 10mm, 8.5mm, 7mm
Just to give you context, CCRM wants to see my follicles measuring between 18-24mm at the time of egg retrieval. The goal is to get as many eggs as possible at the same maturity. So we want these follies to grow at essentially the same rate.
That 15mm may be growing too fast and the 4mm on the left is growing way too slow. So we probably won't be able to get those. But there are about 5 that are within the right range.
In the meantime, I've just been enjoying disconnecting from the world and focusing on my body. Yesterday, I took an hour long walk in Breckenridge. It was beautiful. I focused on talking to my follicles, breathing in the fresh mountain air, feeling the breeze and listening to the sound of the running water. It was so peaceful.
