I’m losing it

on March 3, 2014

Emotionally, I’m a mess. Ultrasound showed just 7 follicles and only one that is the appropriate size. We stim tonight and then we’re out of meds. My nurse tells me she can only get me one of the two if we need to stim longer. I’m concerned they are just going to cancel this cycle and all this will be for nothing.

Comically, I’ve got my legs up against the side of the couch and a warm blanket over my belly in hopes the crazy wives tales work and these lazy ass follies grow miraculously over night.

  1. Oh no!! I’ll say a prayer that they grow! Thinking about you… so frustrating.

    I’m thinking of you and hoping you get some good news!

  5. Sometimes a diversion in the plan is what’s needed so we don’t lose our mind (said like a true ”currently on a break” infertile). I’m hoping that’s not the case for you. Good luck tomorrow!

    Oh no, I really hope they don’t cancel. It’s so, so frustrating when a cycle doesn’t go like it should. Do you know how many eggs/follicles they were expecting? My clinic told me that mine would probably be cancelled and gave me 2 more days of drugs and 3 big follicles just appeared seemingly outta nowhere. Sending you lots of luck for tomorrow x

    Ugh!! I hate, hate those monitoring ultrasounds! I had poor responding follies too, but they did all shape up in the last few days prior to my retrievals. I only every had 9 follies at the most, but managed to get 5 fertilized eggs off the first retrieval and 6 from teh second, so the majority did catch up. What happened afterward was a whole other story, but the reason I mention it is because a lot can change in a few days. Praying that’s the case for you! And I love the mental image of you with a warm blanket with your legs up. I totally did the same thing! šŸ™‚ Hang in there hon!

  11. I don’t understand why the can’t order your meds?? We do that all the time & have them the next day (from across the country, by the way)… What’s up with that?! I’d be pissed!
    Hoping your follies are growing, growing, growing!!!
