CD 13 - Stim Day 12 - Still going.....

Lining: 9.4mm
Right: 16,16,15,14,11
Left: 16,16,16,15,14,13,13,13,12,10
E2: 4300

Well when I spoke to my nurse yesterday she said that they would push me to Wednesday for a Friday retrieval. When she called today I asked her if we were still good to go for a Friday retrieval. This is how the conversation went:

Nurse N: Girly you need to give your ovaries a pep talk to catch up with your E2.
Me: What is it today?
Nurse N: 4300. Things are still looking good we just need your eggs to grow some more. So drop your meds again to 100 tonight and 75 in the morning.
Me: Are we still good for transfer on Friday?
Nurse N: I don't know.
Me: What do you mean?
Nurse N: Depends on your body?
Me: What is Dr. M trying to get my follie size to? 18?
Nurse N: Yes, 18 would be good but we would like 20?
Me: Why 20 before trigger when the follies will continue to grow even after trigger?
Nurse N: Well at least 18.
Me: Um..... okay. (hanging up phone with a confused look on my face)

So I have no idea what point they are trying to push me to as anything over the size of 15 has the potential to be mature. And today I have 7 at that point already and 6 that are close to it. All I know is, they better trigger me tomorrow, or doc and I need to have a conversation to let me know what in the world she is thinking! Tomorrow will make 12 days that I 've been stimming and I didn't want to stim as long as I did last time. Last time I stimmed for 13 days, but I stayed on a high amount of 300 per day. So I guess its better as I'm not pushing as much drugs into my eggs as I did last time.

Well.......I pray this all works.

My clinic always wanted ones over 18 - but they really liked them over 20.

The cycle I got pregnant, it was only 17 - so don't let them pressure you to do something you aren't comfortable with. If you want to trigger and have the retrieval, be your own advocate.
