Yesterday afternoon I went to the new doctor’s office for a follicle scan. I have been doing 150 IU of g.onal F for the past week, and this was my first scan for this cycle. The new doctor is much more laid back than the fancy clinic, and doesn’t do excessive testing. The fancy clinic made me go in almost every day for u/s and bloodwork. I have to admit, after going for a whole week without checking my progress I was nervous that my results would be on either end of the extremes. Either my ovaries would be on the verge of explosion, or I’d find out that I hadn’t responded to the meds at all. Fortunately, I was right in the middle, with about 4-5 good looking follicles. The largest one was 20mm, and the others were in the 15-18 range.
He told me to trigger or on Wednesday morning, and go in for the IUI on Thursday afternoon. The fancy clinic always had me trigger at night, so I’d shoot up and then go to bed and not think about it. But triggering in the morning is totally different. I usually have trouble focusing at work, but today is especially bad. I’m going crazy trying to see if I can feel anything from the trigger shot. I know, it should take at least 24 hours for ovulation, but I’m impatient…and bored at work.
