Not so Happy Friday

My appointment today did not go well.  I have more follicles this time - 4 on the right that are about 8mm and 4 on the left that are 8mm and 1 that's 11mm.  He said that he was going to up my meds and when I asked him when he thought the retrieval would be, he said it would be Wed. or Thurs.  I mentioned that I wasn't responding well and he said that he didn't think things were going that badly.  But, when I went in to talk to the nurse, she told me that they don't want to see me back until Monday and that if my follicles hadn't grown any, Dr.  P would more than likely cancel my cycle.  So, I was kind of blown over because the doctor was all optimistic and the nurse was all doom and gloom.  And frankly it freaked me out.  I have been very upset all day.  I am just not sure what to think.  All I know is that I need to not worry about it.  I know that God is in control and His will will be done.  I know that.  But, it's still hard not to worry. 


  1. Oh, no! I hope you don't get canceled! But don't listen to the nurse. I hear stories like this all the time and the pessimistic nurse is almost never right.

    And remember, no matter what happens with this cycle, it is worthwhile. Everything you learn in this cycle about what works for you and what doesn't is a part of the bigger puzzle that will help you and your doctors figure out what the perfect combination for you will be in the end.

  2. don't let that nasty nurse get you down! the RE knows his stuff! he's the one that went to medical school longer! you are still 100% in the game. you have 9 or more follies and they're growing like they should! good luck tomorrow. i have a feeling tomorrow will bring good news for both of us!
