There are too many to hug individually, but I am reading this thread daily and have my
: for all those waiting for follies to mature and for those ladies waiting to test for their big
AFM, I am still doing Bravelle injections daily, as well as going in each morning for ultrasounds and bloodwork to monitor. For the past 3 days, my doctor has believed that I'd trigger "any day now" based on my follicle number and sizes. And each day, I'm told "Let's give it one more day to let them mature more." Which would be fine except that I'm so bloated that I'm in MATERNITY pants for work, because my normal pants don't fit. I am SOOOO
uncomfortable. I am a very petite person to begin with, and have been a size 2 my whole life, so I have no clothes in a larger size except my maternity pants from my previous loss.
: I told my doctor, because I was worried about hyperstim, but he said it's just because I was thin before hand, and my body is doing just fine. In the meantime, I'm feeling a bit like a beached whale.
Ah well, anything in the name of a healthy little one!!
Anyway, as of this morning, I have 12 or so follicles currently growing. There's one follie at 22/23mm, 2-3 at 18/19, a few at 14-17, and a bunch at 10-15. My doc said he'd like to give it at least one more day (
) so that the 18/19 follies can get a bit bigger, but he'd have to check my bloodwork to make sure that I'm not about to ovulate on my own. So I guess, at this point, if my bloodwork comes back showing that my hormones are about to trigger ovulation naturally, I'll trigger tonight and have IUI on Thursday. If not (which my doc is hoping for) we'll do more Bravelle tomorrow, and possibly the day after, and then IUI on Friday or Saturday.
While I'm uncomfortable 24-7 from the bloat, I would
like to wait to trigger until more eggs are larger, so I guess I have my
: that I stay in pain for another day or so!!
That's my update. I am keeping my eye on everyone and can't wait to hear about all the
