Day 4 Monitoring
I just had my first montitoring appointment for this mini ivf cycle. I got the woman who is always very thorough with her scans and can usually find both of my ovaries even when they are hiding. I kinda felt like it was a shame that I got her so early in my cycle. I want to make sure I get her when I really need her to find my ovaries like towards the end of the cycle or something. Oh well.
Since I started the follistim really early this cycle on day 1 and it is only day 4 there wasn’t that much to see. You don’t think that anything bad will happen because I started on day 1 instead of day 3 or 4 like most people normally do? They did check my blood and scan me on day one so I figure it’s fine. Anyawys, she had a hard time finding my ovaries, but she is thorough so she kept looking and it felt like it took forever. She moved it all around and pushed down on my abdomen. In the end my lining was up to 3 something (still really thin) and I have a few small follicles on my right side. She couldn’t find my left. She said that it’s still really early in my cycle so I might not even see follicles yet. The ones she did find were like 6 and 7mm so not much of anything yet. She said that they will check my blood and call me back later this afternoon, but that I will probably get the weekend off and come back early next week. I really hope they see more the next time I get scanned. It should be at least day 8 or 9 by then.
