My Follies are Growing... fa la la la la...

Follicle report: 17, 13, 12, 11, 11, 11, 10, 7, 6, 5. 

Estrogen 266
Progesterone 0.207

Started Ganirelix, actually Cetrotide, to prevent ovulation.  Continuing 10 units of low dose HCG and 300iu of Gonal-F every evening through Wednesday.  I had to order one more Gonal-F pen... I was one dose short.

Next monitoring appointment will be Thursday morning.  My retrieval will be this weekend, probably Saturday.  I cheered when I heard it would be over the weekend - I wont have to be out of work until the transfer.  If the embies will make it, a 5-day transfer will be Thursday.  I couldn't be more pleased about the timing (from a work impact perspective), it will make my lack of explanation for my time off easier to pull off!

And the Christmas Tree went up yesterday!


  1. 10 follies? Sounds great to me! Hoping and praying!!! I love the tree and the dogs in front of it.

  2. Great numbers! The tree looks gorgeous!

  3. So glad it works out with your work. Moving schedules around is always such a hassle. Sounds promising!

  4. Yay!! Grow follies, grow.. Everything looks great, including the tree.

  5. That's awesome - you're an egg-producing machine! And the sizes look good too :D I wouldn't mind snuggling up with those two pups in front of that tree. And I bet my cats wouldn't mind drinking the tree water!

  6. Awesome follie count!! Timing sounds perfect too.

    Beautiful tree!

  7. Such great news!! (your follies AND the saturday retrieval!)
    Love the tree and your dogs are adorable :)

  8. Beautiful numbers! And beautiful tree! AND yay for a weekend ER!!!! Let me know if you need anything while you're on bedrest - I deliver! :)

  9. Hooray for growing follies! Thinking about you friend!
