Two on the right and four on the left. My husband is optimistic and is relieved that there are more than three and therefore enough to go ahead with the cycle. I’m pretty disappointed. For some reason, perhaps I was in denial about my DOR diagnosis, I was hoping for more. How many of those six will be retrieved? How many will fertilize? The chances seem slim and my optimism is fading.
The doctor really battled to find my left ovary… Apparently it was hiding behind my bowel… After much pushing on my stomach and moving of the magic wand he finally found it… Thank goodness, as it is outperforming Mis Righty and so offered a glimmer of hope. Back on Monday for another scan after a weekend of menopur. Hopefully Miss Lefty will reveal herself in all her splendor.
*update*. We met with the nurse who did a lot to reassure me that 6 follicles is ok and at the moment my lining is growing and that all is good. She was very sweet and encouraging and whether or not she’s right, I’ll take it. I realized that although I really am fine if we move onto donor eggs, it is very hard to go through all the expense and effort of an ivf cycle and to feel early on that there is no hope. So, I’m over my disappointment and am trying to send lots of positive juju and vibes to those six little follicles… Grow babies grow!
