Today I was reminded of the story of the Hare and the Tortoise, you know the one where the hare is like the mouse that shouts “aireeba aireeba” but it too overconfident and eager and falls asleep and ends up losing the race to the tortoise who ran the race at a slow and steady pace?
Why you ask? Because my follies have decided that slow and steady wins the race… Todays scan was ok – good actually considering that I am only on CD 11 of this IVF cycle… Lining was measuring at a nice healthy 9.5mm and I have two leading follies on the left measuring 12mm and two leading follies on the right as well also measuring 12mm…
…But I was kinda hoping for more? Were my expectations too high? It was just that after such a great response to the clomid (without the monster making an appearanc nogall) I was riding the high wave. Only to be dunked by today’s scan… Lovely Doctor is happy cos as he so rightly said it is still early days yet.
So scan diagnosis is good… we’ll stick with good.
Had another 2 amps of menopur this morning, and have steadily aching ovaries so hopefully the other follies will be late bloomers and catch up. Back bright and early tomorrow for another scan to check out the progress, if the leading follies are at 14mm, I start with cetrotide as well as the menopur until trigger for ER.
Just another day of slow and steady, cos this is one race I definitly want to win and will be doing my best not to muck it up by being too much of an eager beaver.
