Four. That's all I have.
My right ovary decided to go on vacation. I had 6 antrals on that side, but not 1 decided to join the party. Left side had a better response with 4 out of 5 growing, but still... of 11 possibles all I have are 4 at this point.
Sizes: 13, 11, 10 and 9. The 5th is hanging around 6 and COULD still show up for me, but it will be a ways behind the others and probably not mature. On the right side all 6 are between 4 and 5 and highly unlikely to show up.
Game plan for this weekend is to work on my stress levels, do my fertility yoga for blood flow, guzzle protein shakes and Mr R's big plan is to focus all the shots on my right side... I've explained that this won't make a difference, but I will let him focus on what he thinks will help at this point.
Next monitoring appointment is Saturday, possible trigger on Sunday night, but she says it's likely that we'll wait till Monday to trigger and push the retrieval back a day to Wed 7/9.
Okay, so let's focus on the positives? Last cycle I had 3 follies, 2 on the right which measured 20.52 and 14.87 at retrieval and 1 on the left measuring 14.07 at retrieval. Only one was mature (obvs the 20.52) and while the other two matured over night, they failed to fertilize and arrested on Day 2. This cycle they are closer in size and it's likely that I will have more than 1 over 18mm at retrieval which means a higher likelihood of 4 MATURE eggs and hopefully then 4 fertilized eggs.
Premature question of the day?
IF we have 4 embryos,
1) Do we risk going to day 5 and losing some?
2) And if we have 4 do we still put 3 back? Or do we transfer 2 and save 2?
I need to quit thinking about this.... Meh.
