Had another check-in with the doctor today. All is still looking good. My lining is up to 10.8 (which is good) and I had 10 good size follicles with a few more that were too small to merit measuring. My estrogen level is up to 773. By the time we get to retrieval, the doctor uses estrogen as a proxy for mature follicles with an estimated 150 in estrogen for each mature follicle.
I am in a bit more pain today than I have been. By a bit, I actually mean a lot. Sharp sharp pains around where my ovaries are. Poor little ovaries are struggling to make room for all of these follicles!
Because I am on such high dosages of medication to ensure I get enough follicles to go forward, I am almost out of medications. They ordered more for me on Tuesday and it should arrive tomorrow. Today I realized which medication it is we are reordering. It is the most expensive one I am taking. This procedure just got a bit more expensive
