Day 1 of my cycle started yesterday. I wasn’t expecting it until Sunday, but my Doctor said he knew it would come then. Silly of me to question the expert, hey? So tomorrow is Day 3, which means the beginning of injections again. I have to have an internal ultrasound before I pick up my medication to make sure that my ovaries have healed up enough. Have to say I am not looking forward to that. Day 3 and an ultrasound- sounds like something from a horror movie. I'm pretty confident that they will have healed up, my body has felt pretty normal.
The medication you start your cycle on is really the indication of how many
follicles you will get. The medication can be upped during the course of the
process to boost the smaller ones along, but it’s the first medication which
makes them. So I started last cycle on 112.5ui, this cycle will be on 175ui. He
is a little nervous that I'll be unwell, but I've told him I am comfortable
going through with it as I want to get as many follicles as possible this round
as I don’t want to have to cancel again.
I’m hoping for 18 follicles, hubby says 15. Then they will be collected and
hopefully have 6-8 fantastic embryos. If the embryo takes I will be due in
It's funny, when we first started trying for a baby I was very calculated. Didn’t
want to get pregnant in March, because I didn’t want a December baby. I love to
celebrate birthdays, and Christmas and Easter and anniversaries TO THE MAX and
hate the thought of celebrating a birthday so close to Christmas. So I am
really hoping this one takes and that I get a November baby- hopefully not born
on hubbys birthday, cos I am not fond of joint birthdays either hahahah. Fussy
I'll let you know how I go tomorrow!
