After my post yesterday I went out for dinner with a friend. Went to the bathroom around 9pm, and discovered I was spotting. I managed to get home before having a total freak out at my husband about whether I had already ovulated and we would have to cancel the cycle.
Luckily, I my appointment was scheduled for 7.45 so I didn't have the whole morning to dwell on it. While waiting for my ultrasound I was praying 'please don't let me have ovulated. Please measure something!' I was so happy when she started measuring. Not so happy that she only seemed to have measured 5 follicles. I know 5 is better than none, but I'm still disappointed.
According to Dr K I am responding slower than he thought I would. Why this is a surprise to him I don't know. I have responded slowly in every cycle we have done. My biggest follicle was at 1.7 this morning, with most being 1.4.
We also confirmed my blood type. Definitely O negative. Again, they didn't seem too concerned about it, so I'm not worried.
So I have to go back tomorrow morning. This is a bugger as I have class at 10am. So I'm going to be rushing from the clinic to class. At least it's a Sunday so there won't be any traffic. Luckily I have prepared my Sunday classes already in case I had my egg retrieval on Sunday and someone had to sub for me.
One more Gonal F shot today which was kind of cool because instead of giving me a new pen they drew the left over meds out of the pens with a syringe (I'm easily pleased!) Also bloods, and finally the cetrotide to prevent premature ovulation. I'm relieved to have had it after that scare last night, though it itches like crazy! I now have a huge welt on my stomach that looks like my reaction to mosquito bites.
