Stimulation Day 9

Today marks stimulation day 9 and I had another scan this morning.  I had 10 follicles on the left, ranging from 10mm to 20mm and 5 on the right ranging from 12mm to 20mm.  Six of the follicles seem to be growing together in the biggest clump and 10 are currently large enough to be considered "mature."  My lining is in good shape at 13.6mm.  My estrogen is at 2,177.

I didn't get a photo of the screen today because the screen can only show 13 follicles.  So when the nurse left the room so I could sneakily photograph the display it was on page 2 and only showing the size for two small follicles.  The rest were on page 1 and I didn't want to touch the fancy computer and risk messing anything up.

Once the largest follicle reaches 21mm it is time to trigger and wait for retrieval so we should be triggering tomorrow and scheduling retrieval for Thursday.  This should give plenty of time for some additional follicles to cross the 13mm "maturity threshold" which is the estimated size a follicle needs to be to contain a mature egg. 

We are moving forward!!!!  I am walking on air today!
