Different scanners? *updated*
I went back in this morning to have another monitoring visit. I’m glad my follicles are finally growing, but sheesh I wish I would get to the point where I get to try already. This cycle is becoming way long. I read on the internet somewhere that late ovulaters have less of a chance because their eggs/follicles are older. I asked about that and my nurse said that it isn’t true. She said they are mature when they are mature.
My title for this entry is different scanners because I had a new lady that I don’t think I’ve had before. I was kind of disappointed she didn’t say, “Hi, my name is __” when she came in. Anyways, she did my scan and wasn’t giving me much detail until I asked. She measured my left ovary follicles and found a big circle on the screen and measured it at 14 something I believe. She also measured a smaller one that I don’t remember the measurement. I was like what happened to my big follicle? She asked the lady in the room and she said yea I had a bigger one last time. So she measured it again and then she was like yea, this is 17 by something. I was like phew. But then I started thinking, if I hadn’t said anything she would have just left the measurement as smaller. I am pretty confident in my last scan since my actual RE did it. So my question is have you guys had different results from different scanners? Maybe it was just a hard view to measure, but I left wondering what else she might have measured wrong. She also didn’t seem to look around as much. So I dunno. All I can do now is wait for my blood work to come back. She said that they are looking for my estrogen to be 200 and for my follicle to be 18×18. That might be a bit longer still since I don’t think my big follicle grew more than 2mm or so. More waiting.
Just got my estrogen results and they are 195!!!!! Sweet. That is a big jump from tuesday which was only at 91. They want to see me tomorrow morning. I’m almost at the trying point. That made me feel better 😀
