I have follicles! — The Bump
Secondary IF

I have follicles!

ok this may not mean much, but I HAVE FOLLICLES! I have no idea what that means in regards to if this IVF thing is going to work, but I have 6 follicles, all between 11 and 16mm. Again, not a clue what that means, but let's just go with it ok? :) 

It was a long shot that I would even respond to the stims because I guess women with diminished ovarian reserve not always respond well, but yay!

So cheers...here's to having good U/S results, and not knowing what they mean :)

  • Well I think this is a predictor of how many eggs you will have, it could be more or could be less, but that is a rough estimate of how many they might retrieve.  When did you have that ultrasound done?  What day of your cycle?  I think I will go tomorrow. 
    I think 6 is a great number.  I have been crossing my fingers for that many, because I have DOR too!
