Stims Update

Stims are going pretty well so far. I had a little bit of bleeding after my shot on Friday, but Saturday and Sunday nights were perfect. We were doing 375 units of HMG each night. I had my first progress check this morning. Here's what happening so far:

Left ovary: 8, 9, 9, 10
Right ovary: 6, 9, 10, 13 (pretty sure the 13 is a cyst they saw on my baseline)
Lining: 8
E2: 167

Dr. D wants to see more, so she's bumping up my dosage to 450 for tonight, Tuesday, and Wednesday with u/s and b/w on Thursday.

I also downloaded an IVF meditation CD and used it for the first time last night. It was soooooo relaxing. I even felt good this morning. I usually wake up several times during the night, and I think I only woke up once. I'll definitely be using it each night right before bed and taking it with me for transfer and my acupuncture appointments.

Well, I'm off to get poked. That's all for now.


  1. I don't know enough about IVF yet to know what those numbers mean, but it sounds like you have a promising number of follicles growing. Hopefully the extra meds will help out.

  2. I've never heard about an IVF meditation CD. Where do you find that?

  3. Glad to see things are moving along!! and hoping that bumping up your dosage did the trick... can't wait to hear how your u/s go's on Thursday;)
