I'm Feeling.....

1- Frustrated because my follies are growing slowly.
2-Full because they are taking up space in there. I'm bloated/swollen/ uncomfortable.
3-Irritated. Just because.
4-Upset cause its messing with my (non-existing) social life. I have to stay in so I don't miss my injection time.
5-Sleepy. If I could sleep 22 hours a day, I would.
6-Tired of my dildo cam lover. I need some space.
7-Bruised from all the injections.
8-Annoyed that I have to do all this in the first place
9-Sad that this is taking a little longer then planned. I know its still normal and expected but I want to get it over with NOW.
10-Bitchy, see all of the above. My excitement has left me for now :(

Details:
After 9 days of stims, this morning my dear dildo cam told me I have: 2- 15mm, 4- 12mm, 5- 11mm, 4- 10mm and many small follies. My estrogen levels are low enough for me to continue stimming.

  6. Ashley,
    They are supposed to be at least 18mm before trigger, which is usually around day 10 of stims. That's just the average, I happen to be a slow responder. I have the two 15mm but I need the other ones to catch up so I that I can up my chances with extra follies. So far it seems that I'll only have 6 for retrieval, kinda on the low side. And before I freak you out for when your time comes, people have stimmed up to 18 days and have gotten their BFP. Same goes for small number of follicles.

  8. I'm thinking about you, and hoping your follies grow! I know how frustrating it is to have a bunch of puny follies. I started with Follistim this month on CD3. I've only had 2 injections but I'm already worried that the 50IUs that they have me doing isn't enough for my follies or my estrogen. Last month everything was cancelled because my estrogen was less than 20....What is up with that? Ugh.

  15. My entire family hated me while I was on those drugs. They suck. Just remember, you need good quality eggs...if they stim you too fast then they may not be mature! I hope you get to feeling better soon. Keep your chin up:)It will all be worth it in a few weeks!!!
