I don't know how to think or feel.
I am sure it's the (massive) amounts of hormones racing through my system, but I feel hopeless tonight.
My results were good for me. They are poor-responder good- but that's where I am, so I should feel OK.
My estrogen level on Day 6 (meaning 5 days of stims) was 514.7.
Last cycle (4 eggs Retrieved, 3 Fertilized, 0 at day 5) it was 358.2 1 day later on Day 7 (6 Days of stims- they had me stim for an extra day before bw/us because my Day 4 was so low)
IVF #1 (10R, 4F, 1 at day 5) it was 450.4 on the same day.
This is also the day of IVF when they do the first follicle check. Here is where my heart sank a bit (a lot)
There are three measurable follicles- 11, 12 and 14 with 2-4 non-measurable- all on the right. Lefty has nothing measurable and 2-4 non-measurable. Bottom line: 6-11 follicles.
Again to contrast:
IVF #1: Left: 1 measurable (11) 3-5 non-measurable. Right: 0 measurable, 5-7 non-measurable .
Bottom line: 9-13 follicles
IVF #2: Left: 0 measurable, 2-4 non-measurable. Right: 1 measurable (11) 2-4 non-measurable
Bottom line: 5-9 follicles
So there were more follicles on round one, though this time there are more measurable follicles. My concern- and what happened last time, is that one follicle becomes dominant and we have to trigger before there are more follicles available.
I guess we will know more on Saturday when I go back again.
I hate this.
