My blood work from today's monitoring appointment just came in...my E2 level is at 719!!! This is huge. This is ginormous. This is monumental!! Before this cycle it never got out of the 300s. OMG! (And my progesterone is at .8, which is also good.)
During the ultrasound this morning we saw three really good follies...a clear 16 and two that were close to 16 (for those who don't know, once a follicle gets to 18 it is considered to be mature). There were a few other smaller follies that likely won't mature. So my plan is to do one more night of Follistim and Menopur (even though it is the devil--it is helping!) and go back tomorrow morning for more blood work and another ultrasound.
Of course this puts a kink in The Coach's plans...you see, he was booked on the first flight out on Friday morning to go on a recruiting trip because he thought our IUI would be Thursday. Well now it will be Friday (most likely--definitely not before Friday) so he needs to be around at least for the morning on Friday to give his sample. Meaning he had to change his plans. That's what is so hard about all of this..nothing is ever known ahead of time, everything always changes and you can't count on what happened one cycle to ever happen again.
But The Coach said he'd make it work and my E2 is at 719!!! Woo-hoo!
