Not positive, not exactly negative either

I went to the RE this morning. After five days of meds, I have 3 follicles at 11, and 3 that are "too small to know how they'll turn out." I think I heard the doctor say one of those too small ones was at 10. This office requires you to have at least 3 follicles to continue your IVF cycle, so that part's good news. I figure there's not that much difference between 10 and 11, so there's hope for that one (let's not discuss the actual numeric comparison, ie if you're talking about mm, the difference between 10 and 11 is sizable). I'm going to eat lots of protein this week. I don't know if that'll help, but I'm going to imagine that it will, since friends of ours (Hi S.!) told us that her acupuncturist recommended lots of meat and full-fat dairy.

I'll be eating a burger with avocado and following that up with peanut butter ice cream. Doctor's orders. If not now, when? Right?


  1. At my first stim ultrasound, i had 6 in the 10-12mm range (my doctor counted 10's) and then some tiny ones … ended up with 19 eggs retrieved. So 3 in the 11 range could turn into so many more come retrieval day... thinking of you and looking forward to the next update.

  2. I agree with defining family. and there are always those that hide from the ultrasound.
    Lots of ice cream and steak dinners this week :)
