Lazy Lefty- Day 7 Stats

Had my Day 7 ultrasound this morning. Righty is going strong! About 18 follicles, all measuring mature! Unfortunately, Lefty is slacking. About 11 follicles, but most are small-ish. A couple are mature, but not many. Waiting on E2 and dose changes.

I am really bummed by this news! I should be grateful to have so many on the right side, but I am feeling like we have less "chances" since Lefty is under performing. It also is making me wonder, is something wrong with that ovary? The doctor doing my u/s said, "Sometimes that ovary gets less blood flow, but that might just be this cycle." That began the freak out: what if I have to do this again? What if there aren't enough and we have to do another fresh cycle?

I know so many people have done more than one cycle, and you are my heroes. Since I am tubeless, and this is our only option, I am sort of in it until it works, but I hope with all my heart it will be this time.

God, hormones make me even more of a worry wort!


  1. If it makes you feel any better, I was in a similar situation when I was stimming. I had one ovary with several, nicely sized follicles and one with mostly puny follicles. I wrote off the puny ones, thinking that ovary wouldn't produce anything useful. I was wrong -- somehow, I ended up getting several eggs from that side, and most of them fertilized nicely. Here's hoping the same thing happens to you!

  2. Hi Carrie - Thanks for visiting me on my blog. :) It sounds like this cycle is going really well for you. I really think that you are going to have plenty of mature eggs for your egg retrieval. I hope that this cycle is successful for you. Good Luck!

  3. Good luck with everything! Your numbers sound really good. I will keep my fingers crossed!

  4. Come on left ovary...get a move on...we're waiting here.

    Yay for all the nice follies on the right!

  5. I'd take heart in what Paranoid said in her comment--lefty might be more of a contender than you think. Sounds like you have some really nice follicle growth going on in there! Sending lots of good vibes in your direction~
