It Was Not Great.

Not much else to say, and honestly, too discouraged to really write too much anyway.

I had 3 follicles on one side, 4 on the other.  They averaged 8-10 mm, mostly on the 8 mm side and who knows if they'll keep going?


My estrogen was 101.

It should have been that 4 days ago.

They upped my medicine to as high as it can go for both the Bravelle and the Menopur.  Want to keep watching and seeing...they feel somewhat optimistic that 4 more follicles popped up and are hoping that  this could happen still, but I know...

The big(gest) guns are out.

They won't consider canceling until Monday to see how tomorrow and Monday morning are.

I just keep thinking back to this post...and praying that though this is even more drastic than I thought that was, Day 8 will strike again.

But really, it's not great.  Today was not great.  I cannot, cannot, cannot believe my estrogen.  That Lupron sure did do a great job of suppression.

Stupid Lupron.


  1. I'm here ... listening ... praying and waiting on what I am called to do for you. If you tell me to mail you a refridgerator size box of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory treats ... your will be done. Love you. Still hopeful.

  2. Praying for you to have a great Day 8. And for peace with no regrets. Praying Psalm 37:3-7a over and over again for you. And hoping...

  3. Praying and remaining hopeful. I'm reading..."listening"...I know I don't always comment, but you never leave my heart. Here beside you....

  4. Praying for you so much & so Hopeful <3

  5. Praying for you my dear friend! I am a low responder, so what you are experiencing was my typical response. I know it is discouraging, but I am believing for good news for you! Much love!!!

  6. Praying today for you. So frustrating when we want something so bad to go without a hitch and these major bumps in the plan occur. I really hope the big guns produce over the next two days.

  7. I don't understand very much about IVF. But, I do understand being angry and hurt when your body doesn't do what it's supposed, even when we're using science to help it along. I'm so hopeful for you, Lori, and I wish I could do something with that hope, make something happen for you. Life is so cruel sometimes and I just don't understand it. :( Sending all my love, hugs, and hope.

  8. I hated Lupron. That is seriously the worst medication I have ever taken in my life! Praying for you.

  9. Sending you lots and lots and lots of good thoughts and prayers!!

  10. Oh no saw this after your other post. So sorry Lori
