Ultrasound today showed 17-18 follies, with about 13 ready to go, so we were told trigger would likely be tonight. The ultrasound tech who measured my lining today could only get a 6 out of it, but it was a different tech with a different machine, so they are treating it as a 7. Great. Nothing like giving me more confidence here.
My E2 level is now at 5,833, even after a day of coasting it went up by over 2,000. We are not triggering tonight. The doc wants me to stop taking the es.trace and go back in tomorrow to see what my "true" estrogen level is without the es.trace. I really don't believe that taking one tiny little es.trace vaginally could be skewing my E2 level by THAT much. I also don't believe giving me another day off stims will cause my E2 to drop. Just speaking from past experience with my own body here, but what do I know?
I am so frustrated. I don't understand why my body is doing this and not reacting the way it should. Why didn't we start at the lowest possible dose of stims and build up if needed?
I had my mind set on triggering tonight with retrieval Wednesday and both B and I had told our bosses already (serves us right).
I think part of what is upsetting me right now is the thought of yet another day of the vi.agra. Have I mentioned how much I hate this stuff and how much of a freak I feel while on it (things just don't feel right in there)? I'm also worried about the fact that Nancy's doctor told her not to take the es.trace and vi.agra at the same time and mine didn't mention a word about that (I've been taking my es.trace at the same time as my 4th dose of vi.agra each night). I know each patient is different and each doctor has a different theory, but it's just one more thing for me to worry about.
Fuck. (sorry, Mom)
