Day 5 Stats

Thanks to everyone who is cheering me on, encouraging and making me laugh! For those of you who understand IVF speak, here we go.

Day 5 of Antagonist protocol

11 Follicles on left ovary, average 8 mm.
18 (!!) on right ovary, average 11 mm!

Lining, 9.6 mm and waiting for E2 blood work.

They told me to start Cetrotide immediately so I don't ovulate, and to wait on my stim dose. It sounds like everything is going just how they want, and that I will probably have my retrieval earlier than thought- maybe Sunday or Monday. I also have to go in Thursday and Friday for monitoring and possibly tomorrow.

I can't believe how fast this is happening... I am so thankful to be responding well, and so hopeful that this will work for us!


  1. Wow, that's a lot of follicles! I hope they all hang in there.

  2. Such great news! Hopefully you're still feeling OK.

  3. Wow! Big #s you have there! I did antagonist protocol last cycle and it was no great shakes for me - I'm jealous! Wishing you luck!


  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I wish you luck at your retrieval! I can't believe how many follicles you have already!

  5. Yay for your ovaries! :) great follies!!

    Good luck with the cycle!
