    My update... (TTC ment)

    First of all... the laptop... dead. Not entirely but its barely functional so we've been without for a while.

    I'm currently at the Library in Spokane fighting off a bunch of old ladies for internet access!

    Anyhoo...

    for some reason my E2 isn't rising as it should. Its not as high as its been in the past and is rising very slowly. Its rising but painfully slowly.

    We can see a multitude of follies growing like mad in there but without the E2 to back it up... Don't know.

    So I'm still on stims and hoping : for a trigger tonight or tomorrow. Guess if we have to do this again, I'll insist that I go back to my old protocol of Lupron first, then stims. Needless to say, its making me a tad nervous. I know I only need one good embie but its always nice to have a bit of a back up, KWIM?

    In the meantime, we're having a ball taking Genevieve to the carousel, going for walks, visiting places we used to frequent when we lived in this area... and today, my big highlight is going to be laundry!

    Can you stand my excitement?

    Thanks for your unending support, Ladies!

    Much love and to all of you!



    I'll try to get back to the library tomorrow if I can.

    Had to smile at the thought of you battling the little old ladies for the computer... "Hey, outta my way, I have to tell my on line buddies my E2, you ole bats. Yeah, and I'm on fertility meds, too, so don't mess with me."

    Hope that E2 rises sharply for you!

    Thanks for the update Annette. All these numbers can drive you crazy, can't they? On my IVF cycle my e2 was also low (and now I can't even remember what it was!) for the number of follies but it correlated with the number of eggs retrieved. I am not sure if that's a comfort since you didn't say how many follies and whatnot but I hope it helps. You know we are all in your corner!! Go e2 go!!!!

    Annette.

    Sorry your e2 level is causing you to worry. It's so hard when you've got other cycles to compare it to. Hopefully you'll still end up with some fabulous eggs and some super sticky embies!!!!
