Okay, so I've been on massive doses of hormones this month. This has NOT been fun - just ask my loving, patient husband! :) They started me out on 1 amp per day of Bravelle (follicle stimulating hormone) to help me ovulate. When I didn't get pregnant on that, they upped it to 2 amps per day to try and help me produce 2 eggs. Well, I still only made 1 egg the last time. This time, still 1 egg, so they upped it to 3 amps per day. Still one egg, and it wasn't close to ready. So, they kept me on 3 amps per day. Well, at my ultrasound today, I had 1 egg on the right ovary and 2 on the left ovary that range from 14 mm to 18 mm, meaning that they all might get large enough to be viable. They had me take 1 more amp of the medication today and then I go back for another ultrasound on Wednesday. If everything looks ready then, they will trigger me to ovulate and we will do insemination Friday.
I'm very excited about the possibility of increasing my chances by producing more eggs this month. I've been very discouraged this cycle and not sure that we should continue. Everyone please say a prayer that this works! Oh, and thanks for all the loving support and sweet comments on my last post about all the fertility issues. I appreciate it more than you'll know.
