The one with the numbers:
E2 went to 3140, so at least it didn't double from yesterday.
LH: 2.3 (down a wee bit)
I talked to my nurse about my freak out. Her words were: as long as the E2 goes up and we see some growth we're fine. It doesn't mater how long it takes the follicles to get there as long as they do get there.
My biggest ones are just at 14 mm. Usually I need to see several at over 20 to before trigger to help with maturity. We did that last cycle and still only wound up with 12/20 mature and only one was post-mature. Of course, this time we're adding microdose HCG for maturity and will probably trigger with a whopper HCG dose...so maybe we won't have to get them all to 20? Who the heck knows.
I'm a little calmer. I always stim a long time so really this isn't anything new. Although the E2 is rising, at least it has risen in a more slow, controlled manner and not all crazy high from the beginning. And maybe this slower rise won't "fry" the eggs? Not really sure on that one, but I'm hoping anyway.
I got a haircut today. It was so nice...I love a head massage! I'll take anything calming I can get right now.
Thanks for hanging in.
