It seems as though my ovaries are being a little bit lazy, or in other words, in no big hurry to get this show on the road. Today's ultrasound and bloodwork showed evenly sized follicles, but still pretty small. They haven't made any great progress, though hormone levels are rising slowly. My current dosages are remaining the same and my doctor was quick to point out that we are still moving forward. He said that some docs start Ganirelix (I have it in my stash, but don't know what on earth it does) automatically on day 6 (which is where I am now) but that he himself prefers to go by follicle size. So, we are going to recheck things on Friday.
I know the game isn't over yet, shoot, it has barely gotten started. However, I'm afraid a little worry is creeping in that my ovaries aren't going to cooperate and that this is going to be the end of the road. I think I've read somewhere that it's better to stim slowly than quickly since the egg quality seems to be better. I'm hoping that is true. I'm hoping that my ovaries get off their lazy duffs and start producing. I know that this is our best shot, but at the same time there is so much riding on this being successful. I don't feel ready to be "done" if things don't work out right.
I'm starting to ramble, so it's time to sign off for now before I really work myself into a tizzy.
