doing second ER, on day 7 of stimm, emotional and worried

Postby Meh77 » Sat Sep 27, 2014 3:44 pm

I froze my eggs last year after my bloodwork came back with horribly bad fsh and amh levels. My obgyn said he would recommend it if I wanted to have kids given my bloodwork. I got married last October and we tried naturally for 9 months with no success. I'm 37 and my husband is 45 both with no kids. So after 9 months of trying we unfroze the 9 eggs, 5 fertilized, two made it to blast and only one was genetically normal. So the dr wants to do another ER since we only have one embryo and my reserve of eggs are barely there , before we try to transfer the one embryo. So I'm on day 7 of stimm and he is doing a different protocol this round with plans to stimm me longer in hopes of getting more eggs. I'm on 5 units of lupron, 150 menopur and 450 bravelle. I had my first ultrasound today and have 4 follicles. I don't know if 4 is good or not at this point. This is my first post in any ivf community and I'm just really needing support as I go through this and have questions. My husband doesn't understand the emotional side of what I'm going through or the physical really. He's not an outwardly emotional guy and has a high threshold for pain and discomfort since he has an amputated leg due to ambirth defect. So I'm not getting a lot of comfort from him. Thanks for the support ladies! :)

Went again today and I still have four follicles, two of which are pretty big and might be cysts, all are on my left ovary. There is no activity on the right ovary. Dr is keeping me on the same dose tonight and will evaluate again in the morning after tomorrow's ultrasound. If there is no change he's stopping the stimm, I'll have to wait for another period then start over and they will try another protocol. He said it doesn't make sense for the cost and trouble to move forward with so few and one or two could be cycts. What is the least amount of eggs anyone else has had harvested? I am really sad and my husband is upset but acting it out in anger, frustration and shortness with me. He doesn't know how to show compassion or talk about his feelings so it comes out in ways that are hard for me to deal with. :cry:
