So I emailed the Dr about the blip and also about the fact she had planned to prescribe pessaries over crinone gel because of my shite LP. She returned the email promptly saying she would amend my history to reflect ETx2 and will write the prog script at OPU. Wonderful!!!

Also, antag needles HURT. They are thicker than the FSH ones, not fine and painless, oh no! These were needing quite the shove to pierce the skin. Caused tears in the eyes, was glad J was doing it and not me. I'd have hesitated and freaked and muffed it.

Wonder how many of the follicles will grow all the way and not be empty? My goal for this EPU is 6-10 eggs. Fingers crossed. And also, quality - better quality PLEEEEEASE. Trigger tomorrow, not sure what time or where yet, will find out tomorrow when nurses call.

Good luck for some top quality eggs.

Q. Do you think that pessaries work better than the gel?

Sending many good thoughts for quality and quantity.

I hope this is it for you! (A little ice goes a long way for me with those thicker needles).

I second the call for using ice. Someone had tipped me off on it before I started this cycle, and I honestly thought the shots didn't hurt until the day The Boy missed the iced-down area.

Good luck with your retrieval! I hope you get scads of mature eggs.

It seems to be that most of the tie 1/2 of the follies that you get (on the scans) are empty/not mature. Also, the E2 levels are pretty good indicators of how many mature eggs you have. Each mature egg produces 250 units of E2...so you can do the math and get a pretty good guess as to how many you might have. Good luck & keep us posted!!
