They're growing!!

The follies are gettin' fatter. Maybe it's the nightly ice cream somehow helping them along? hehe.

My appointment today went well. All I wanted from today's appointment was for some more follicles to pop up and for some of them to be dominant. And I got it! They are progressing along and my lining is thickening up. My est a little more than doubled too. Which I kind of was hoping it would triple or quadruple, but I will just be happy with the fact that it is rising! They are keeping me on the same dose for the weekend and then I go back on Monday to be scanned. The nurse said something about maybe Wednesday for the retrieval, but I have a gut feeling it will be Thursday or Friday. When they would guess my IUI days, it always turned out to be a day or two later. I am just so happy and grateful that we are still chugging along and making some progress....

I feel like there is a long row of hurdles in front of us, and we are barely getting our legs over each one!

But at least we are getting over :)

Good luck to you and lots of good follies! I am also on my first IVF and just had a retrieval on Wednesday! My eggs were actually not measurable on CD5 also but then took off on CD6. I stimmed for total of 10 days and had a trigger on night of CD11 and retrieval on CD13 with CD1 being the first day of stims.
