Injections: Day 7 (Wednesday, June 22, 2011)
Physical: The swollen feeling continues, but it's nothing that is changing my life. I can still do most normal things. I'm going to work without a problem. The major difference is no exercise (I normally run and lift weights) and nothing else to physically strenuous. (Today's Test Results: 13 follicles were measured, but 3 of them are kinda dinky, so call it 10 big, estrogen 1057) Emotional: I feel fine. FYI, there was no doctor's appointment yesterday and nothing exciting happened, so I didn't feel the need to post.
The Doctor's Take Today, the doctor joined us (the ultrasound nurse and me) during the ultrasound. She was quick to tell me that I only had 10 decent sized follicles. That is good, but I shouldn't be too confident that I won't have to go through a second cycle of egg freezing in order to get the desired 15+ eggs.
This definitely put a damper on my enthusiasm, but I also chalked it up to her desire to set my expectations low so that I would likely be happy with the outcome of this cycle.
