Seven follicles, just like the last time.
Of course, I wanted more. But at least the follicles are better synchronized than last time... so maybe I'll end up with more embryos?
My FSH is 4, which is amazing. (I credit acupuncture 100%.)
We're doing a different protocol this time. Clomid pills daily, and shots of Bravelle and Menopur every other day.
I'm a fan of this protocol already, for two reasons. One, I don't have to take as many shots. And two, these meds are SO much cheaper than Follistim. My pharmacy bills was something like $650 today-- less than half what it was on the Follistim protocol. Nice!
I go back again in five days to see how my follicles are doing. I keep hoping maybe a couple more will pop up, but that's probably not realistic.
All I know is I'm happy to be DOING, finally, instead of just PREPARING.
And I hope, in a few weeks, what I'm doing is BEING PREGNANT.
