It feels like some sort of rite of passage.
What happened was that DH forgot that I was going to the RE this morning. Was not even on his radar. "Yes, DH, once again, I am going to get stuck with a needle, violated by a dildo cam, and probably told that my follies are still the same size they've been all week. But glad you're not letting it occupy you much."
Then, we met for lunch, and he forgot again that I had gone to the RE, and didn't even ask me about it!
So I proceeded to:
- Accuse him of living in his own little world
- Accuse him of not supporting me
- Accuse him of not caring whether or not we ever have children
Anyway, we made up eventually. Or at least I calmed down enough that he considers that we made up. Whatever.
Okay, on to follie news.
FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, GROW, FOLLIES, GROW!
What is it with my follicles this cycle? My biggest is 15.43 today. Wednesday it was 14.29, Monday 13.73, Friday 11.63. It's growing 1mm every 48 hrs. WTF? And after that one follie, there's not much else. Everything else has decided that 11m is some sort of follie paradise that they don't want to leave behind. If this cycle gives me just one follie, which by the way I can produce perfectly well on my own without 14 days of injectable fertility drugs, I might have to strangle my RE (Kidding! I'm just kidding. Mostly, that is. Okay, I'm not kidding at all. He'd better watch out.).
Last cycle, at double this dosage, I had 5 follicles between 15 and 16mm at CD9... It boggles the mind.
But, they've finally upped my gonal-f to 112.5iu/day now, and my lining has decided 9mm is just fine, thank you very much, and that's fine with me and my RE, too, so I'm stopping the estrogen patch tomorrow.
My estrogen went up to 277 (from 169) on Wednesday. But today it only went up a little more, to 295. Can't figure that one out, either.
And I go back Monday. For my 6th u/s this cycle.
