Follie update

I started stims on Saturday and I had my first ultrasound (aka - hoochiecam) today. I have quite a few follicles developing, and 3 that are over 9mm (target size is over 17mm). I go back on Friday for more bloodwork and another U/S.

EDIT: I just got the call back from the clinic and my E2 (estrodiol) level is around 1200! (one calculation I've seen indicates that this means I have around 66 follicles under 14mm - that seems like a huge number, although I easily counted 30 on the monitor. It also indicates that I could be headed for ovarian hyperstimulation again) They've reduced my stims and it now looks like retrieval will be Tuesday or Wednesday. Here's to hoping they can keep me under control and still develop some juicy follicles.
