I’m in the thick of IVF round 2 – I’ve had injections for the last week and a half, and had my second ultrasound this morning.
Everything’s looking great so far, I have 13 follicles all ready to go, so I’ll be taking a trigger shot tonight, ready for egg retrieval on Wednesday morning!
I forgot how fast everything moves with IVF – two weeks of chaos followed by two weeks of agonising waiting.
I’m really hoping we get a better result in regards to eggs retrieved – last time we had 15 follicles, but only 7 eggs. Only 5 of those fertilised, so it was a pretty steep drop off. My fertility specialist has said that this time around the sizes are much better – all 13 are between 17-22mm, whereas last time I only had 8 at that size.
We shall see, last injections tonight (thank god, I’m very much over being stabbed in the stomach twice a night).
I’ll update you as soon as I know how it’s gone, be prepared for a woozy post on Wednesday afternoon!
