  • @hanshotfirst77 thanks. Nurse said it was fine. And I got extra good news this morning. They saw 12 follicles on the ultrasound!!! There were happy tears this time. That's a long way from the 1 they said I had a few weeks ago, and that it was unlikely there were more than 1-2 more hiding. So I'm over the moon right now. Now just hoping for good eggs and embryos!  :)

  • @hanshotfirst77 - I see you got your PGS results back. That was pretty fast! Congrats! Do you know the genders or did you all decide not to do that?
  • @31magnolia Thanks yes it was fast. Took about a week. My doctor has the sex info but I’ve decided to just have them put the best graded one first and not know the sex ahead of time. One embryo is graded much higher than the other. But I will try them both one at a time and hopefully get a healthy PG out of it. *TW* I’ve had 2 miscarriages so far this year from IUIs. And so far there has been no reason for the losses. The last was actually genetically normal. So IVF with PGS was what my RE recommended as my best chance. So here’s hoping it works!

  • @hanshotfirst77 that’s a great idea to not know the sex. As you said the most important thing is to have a healthy pregnancy. Also, with IVF they can get your body in it’s most optimal state before the transfer. In hoping that’s the case for me as well. I’m sending lots of good thoughts and prayers! 

    AFM, I’m on my 3rd day of stims. I have my first monitor appointment tomorrow morning. 

    What kind of restrictions and antibiotics were you given? No swimming/bathing, sex, etc
    for how long? and what point did you start taking the antibiotics and for how long? 
    I’m realizing that each clinic is so different. 
  • @31magnolia Thank you!

    I was out on doxycycline starting the night of the egg retrieval and for 5 more days after. None during actual stims though.  The only restriction I was told about was no exercising. I tried to stay pretty low key through out stims too, so I didn't over exert myself or anything. I was worried about OHSS but turns out I didn't respond the way we thought I would to the meds so it wasn't really an issue anyway. 

    Fx for your appt tomorrow!

  • @hanshotfirst77 Thanks! I was worried after my appointment. My SO said he saw the tech type in 19. I thought I had a follicle growing way too fast! But turns out he either has bad eyesight or she was typing something else! Anyway, nothing over 10mm just yet. I did gain a follicle, so now I have a total of 13, 12 on the right and 1 on the left. The range is 7-8mm, so at least they are all pretty even. They are keeping my protocol the same for now. And my next appointment is Saturday at 7:30. Bummed I'll have to go to that by myself. It's an hour away, but my SO has commitment. The nurse said at the second appointment they like to see follicles reaching 10mm. 

    As for restrictions, I'm starting to realize my clinic is very strict. No bending or twisting (normal), don't get heart rate of 140 bpm during stims, no bathing/swimming/spa from stims to pregnancy test, no sex until after transfer. And 7 days of antibiotics but no clear instructions as to when to take them. I'm just going to do it starting the night before the egg retrieval as that makes the most sense to me and is consistent to what I've seen on boards. My SO also had antibiotics but she was clear that they wanted his to start right away (before collection). 
  • @31magnolia You're doing great! Keep growing follies!

    I have my saline sonogram tomorrow so hopefully I'll get cleared to start FET meds!

  • @hanshotfirst77 wishing you the best tomorrow!!!
  • @hanshotfirst77 How did your appointment go? what's the next step?

    AFM: I had my 2nd monitoring appointment. Finally got some follies over 10mm, so the nurse was happy about that. They are keeping the follistim and menopur dosage the same but want me to start ganirelex/cetrocide tomorrow evening. Next appt isn't until Tuesday. So far the three that are over 10 are all around the same size, so no lead follicle, which is good. 


  • @31magnolia It went really well thanks! My uterus is all clear for transfer! Starting my FET prep today. 

    Those follies sound great! You're getting close!
