Had my first scan yesterday, went really really well. Super chuffed, Dr V did my scan, says I’m stimulating like a 30 years old, rechecked my hormone profile and he reckons for an almost 37 year old I’m doing well. I knew it was going to be good because I’ve had a fair amount of discomfort since Friday afternoon. So I have 5 follicles on the left ovary and 6 on the right, all jostling for space, my lining was 6.7mm.

I’ve had an Eostrogen check which is right on track and at today’s scan my follicles are all measuring between 14 & 15mm and my lining has increased to 10mm so we’re on track for ER to be on Thursday or Friday.

Cetrotide has been added to the mix since yesterday, so I’m no injecting with 3 amps of Menopur and then 1 amp of Cetrotide for three days. I don’t like the Cetrotide, it burns like hell and then makes a massive red ring where its injected which itches for ages afterwards. Fortunately, I suspect that tomorrow will be my last day of stims, I scan again on Tuesday and I think I’ll probably trigger on Tuesday evening.

And that’s when the scarey stuff really starts!
