The follicles looked good today, ranging in size from 12’s to 17’s. Dr. Le said that essentially he was going to turn the heat up on the eggs for the rest of the week with the Menopur and that we would be looking at a Thursday or Friday retrieval. I’m hoping for a Friday retrieval. I’m one of the co-leaders for my office’s United Way Campaign and wouldn’t you know- the campaign kick off is Thursday, the 8th.

Any tips on dulling the sting of the Menopur? I consider that I’ve been lucky so far as the Follistim was pretty easy on the skin.

Choose someplace fat. Seriously, find your best fatty tissue and make use of it. Other people swear by icing the spot. Also the good news is that the sting seems to lessen as time goes by.

Everything is crossed for you to get lots of top quality eggs then embryos and a BFP!!
