It's a lovely day in Vegas

Does not compute.

In my long and far from illustrious IVF career, monitoring ultrasounds have been a cause of stress. What with the poor response, uneven follicle development and runaway follicle growth I often get, I am typically left coming out of an ultrasound telling myself to suck it up, that life's a bitch, and I just have to deal with what I have. Which is often fairly shit, let's be honest.

But today it appears that I have 9 viable follicles out of a total of 14. Nine! I gained a couple. They range in size from 16mm to 21mm, so they're nice and evenly sized still. None of them decided to sprint ahead, and the bigger ones kept themselves from going crazy so the smaller ones could catch up. And everybody's a happy chappy.

Like I said, does not compute. These are my ovaries???

Trigger will be tonight. They will call me early this afternoon with the time, and then ER will be on Friday. I am, I have to say, quite nicely mellow about the whole thing.

Wow. this is such wonderful news. I've only had one bad IVF, but my resopnse was similar to your prior one. This is giving me hope that with a new protocol I may have a chance. Good luck!
