I had my appt this morning at CCRM. It was an u/s, b/w and the IVF physical. First, let me say, weighing you during all of this is just plain cruel! Um, ouch. Lets just say I gained just short of 5 lbs for EACH IVF I've been through and kept it all on (yes, that is close to 30 lbs)! But that is all okay, not going to freak out while I am still stimming. Instead I will eat healthy, take care of my excessivly bloated self and then diet and exercise during my 2MW (the 2 month weight now because of the CGH testing). I am actually really really looking forward to exercising without worrying about egg quality and weight. I miss it. I also miss Ashtanga yoga and heated rooms....
Onto better things...She counted and measured 12 follicles that range in size from 10-14. One of those was already at 16, so they are probably going to let that one over-mature and worry about the others. There were at least another 8 or so follicles but they were smaller, so some of them will likely catch up, but many of them may not. Last time at my first CCRM check I had 10 measured follies and ended up with 19 eggs, 17 of which were mature. So, I'm going to pray that we get about that much this time....but 12 of good size sounds good to me right now! Oh, and she did say that the Saizen often does make the follies grow faster in the beginning (I usually stim a little slower, so this is a change for me).
I am super- happy to have stopped with the Saizen yesterday. For some reason, just that one extra shot was completely throwing me off. Not to mention, I am more "off" than I usually am during stims, so I think this might be the culprit. I can't explain it. Tired but can't sleep, cranky, fly off the handle, and have increased tension. I'm guessing it is the Saizen but I am, of course, not sure.
Oh - and I forgot to say - I did have to do the menopur and the Saizen on the flight IN THE SEAT. I am so shy about this sort of thing, but we took off at 8:30 AM and the shots were supposed to be at 9, and they hadn't taken off the seat belt light and didn't seem likely too and it was already 9:05, so I mixed it right there on the tray (with a full row, mind you) and then turned to the window and shot myself up. I was so nervous. But I had a really pleasant older Jamaican couple next to me who minded their own business (probably as soon as they noticed that it was medicine and not heroine or something). Extremely awkward, but it got done. I am surprised I lived through it, lol.
