monitoring update

several times i have mentioned, here and IRL, how large my file is getting at dr. d's office. i have told the nurses it's starting to get to phone book status.... way too big. they always insist there are much bigger files.... i haven't seen one though...i am always looking.
so this morning as nurse k was drawing my blood. my file fell of the wall. it pulled one of those file holder things straight off the wall!!!
it was CRAZY! i mean seriously... it's time to move on... it's time for my baby. my file is to big to hang on the damn wall!

finally... after 3 ivf's i got my hubs to write things down as they do the ultrasound during monitoring!!!! yay for hubs!!
(this is more for my records than anything....but read on if you are interested)

left side: 13, 13, 13, 12
right side: 14, 13, 12, 8
i didn't see the ultrasound screen so maybe there were some more little ones.... but yay!!! both sides are working!! great job ladies!

as i suspected.... my lining left a little to be desired at 3... maybe 4.
i was kind of upset until i went back through my blog and saw last time the lining was slow go but ended up just fine before retrieval. so, i am not going to stress about it at all.

E2 came back at 384. nurse k said things were good.

and i started gan.ire.lix today after the follow up phone call.

trigger will be friday night or saturday night..... i am thinking probably saturday night for a monday morning retrieval.....


  1. So glad both sides are growing! Wow this weekend for a retrieval? Very exciting! Wishing you tons of luck!

  2. Yeah follies!!!! Am so excited for your weekend!

  3. Well and here is my answer, all I needed to do was read your blog! Great news! And do NOT worry about your lining, I am certain it will catch up, mine always was slow to grow but by the time transfer rolled around it was fine.
    That is pretty funny about your file. It IS time for the take home baby!!

  4. Sending big follie vibes your way!!!!

  5. Yeah!!! Grow, follies, grow! Good hubby for taking down your stats. What a guy! :-)

  6. Looking good with those numbers. Good luck!

  7. Thinking of you and praying for lots and lots of growth! xoxo

  8. Your follies are growing and the numbers look good. Crossing fingers and sending positive vibes your way!

  9. Gosh, those little guys are growing up so fast! Hurray for you and how swimmingly this is going.
