Thanks so much for wishing me luck tommorrow...i'll let you know how things go.
: thanks for the advice about not drinking too much...i think the procedure itself is a minor one, but emotionally for us, it's a much bigger deal. I wouldn't get too concerned about a low E2 on your first check...things really progress fast and i'm sure your next number will be higher...mine only went to 1200, and they stopped my stims. I know some people have gotten around 3-4K...I think the higher, the more chances of OHSS.
: i agree with you, we are paying top dollar for these services, and if something doesn't make sense, i think we should ask...i've had to call my RNs a lot to confirm things to make sure i'm not screwing it up...i'm sure they're used to it. I didn't really know what to ask either until I came to this forum - E2 is estradiol, it goes up with FSH (gonadotropins - gonal F, follistim) as the follies are made.
: welcome! 7 follies are great for day 3...i think i have 7 mature ones at the end of stims, but hopefully more will pop up tomm. it also depends of their maturity...after stims, the goal is usu 4-5 mature ones (18-20 mm)..good luck stimming!
: sounds like your doing great, girl! grow follies grow..
: i only had about 7 days of stims, since this was my first, i guess i responded quickly to the meds. Sometimes, i wonder whether being really off my natural cycle hurts, but i'm trying not to think of that. I went out and got some powerade, and applesauce today
, thanks for the advice! will take vicodan as needed...
: i like ur username btw! i'm also hoping4 two, since i don't have any yet. things can really change after day 3 - its just the beginning. One of my ovaries did not even respond by day 3. So, hang in there! For the constipation, eat lots of fruits..esp papaya helps.
: nice to read ur posts too..good luck with day 3 tomm.
: where r u from pa...i used to live in philly. good luck with stims
: thanks for the well wishes..can't wait to hear about ur apt tomm!
If i missed anyone, sorry. Have a great nite
