Holy Estradiol, Batman! (CD5)

Soooo.... I got my e2 results back. To recap:

11/22 Tuesday: e2 of 55, suppressed ovaries with 25+ follicles on each
11/23 Wednesday: 150 units Follistim am, 2 vials Menopur pm
11/24 Thursday: 150 units Follistim am, 2 vials Menopur pm
11/25 Friday: 150 units Follistim am, 2 vials Menopur pm
11/26 Saturday:  150 units Follistim am

The e2 today? 892. Holy effing ess. Holy. Effing. Ess.

It's funny, as soon as they called, I was all "Wow... I sure feel a lot of pressure near the oves." I'm terrified that I'm stimming too fast and I'm going to get all immature eggs. Terrified. Or, I'm going to end up hyperstimmed.

Needless to say, Dr S decided to cut my doses in half. We started tonight, and cut the pm Menopur down to 1 vial. Tomorrow morning with be 75 units of Follistim. I go in Monday morning for another blood draw and my first U/S.

Also, I went on what I think will be my last run until I feel safe while pregnant tonight. My dad, brother, and Dr Boy all went through the greenbelt in town, and it felt awesome. I'm really glad I got that in before things get going *too* much, and I'm glad my family got to enjoy that part of the town we live in too.

But the rest of it?



  1. You's making some babehs up in there! And try not to worry about those things yet (I said try!) With cutting your dosage in half, it might just be a great start to hundreds of follies!

  2. Holy crap! That is a pretty impressive E2 for just a few days in- hopefully things will level out a bit with the decreased dose! I have my first ultrasound on Monday morning too- I am already feeling it, so hopefully there will be some thing to see. I can't wait to hear what you're ultrasound shows-- maybe an ER by the weekend?!?!

  3. Hi from ICLW! I am crossing my fingers for you and hope you get to retrieve lots of eggies! Good luck!

  4. I am sooooo glad everything is getting started for you! So exciting!!

  5. Wow! That is a high e2. Hopefully by cutting the dose it will go up slower. Every time I took Follistim, my levels sky rocketed. But when I took Bravelle, they rose slower...same drug but somehow different? Good Luck!


You know you want to tell me how ridiculous I am...
