In 9 months or so... but first, an update:
Eggsellent appointment! Get it? Eggs... I'm terrible.
Rt ovary: 10, 10, 10, 11, 12, 12, 10, 11, 10
Lt ovary: 10, 11, 10, 10
Plus about five to six follicles under 10mm. Dr. S said we might get around 15 eggs! We'll see though. Even better news is, he was giving high fives for my 9.5 lining and NO fluid!
So as of now we're still on track for a Saturday trigger and Monday retrieval.
As for the TV thing, Dr. S said that he pushed doctors to test patients for AMH levels during the workups and he got some backlashfor it but I'm apparently a prime example of the AMH level being a predictor of the female's response to stimming, follicle production and growth in IVF. My 1.7 AMH predicted a slow response...which was correct. My Follistim is hoped to 200 IU in both morning and evening doses with the Repronex now doubled at 150 IU at night. That should do the job. I figure my Estradiol will be over 1,000 pg/ml tomorrow. So if I get pregnant after all the med increases, etc., Dr. S said he'd have me go on tv with him to show how AMH testing can predict IVF response.
What I'm wondering is, should I dress like professional poker players do, but instead of Full Tilt hats and shirts, I'll have a BlogHer shirt, some IF pins, RPL ribbons, Clearblue hpt logos, Google hat...you know, represent the infertiles?
I'll post more pics later with more info on how to shoot up fertility Meds in a McDonald's bathroom.
On the road again...
