Scan # 1

Today is day 6 of menopur and I look, well, chunky. BUT! This is a good thing, yes? Considering how well I have been eating (protein overload, tons of dairy, dark greens, no caffeine, alcohol, and a LOT of water) you'd think I may have lost a few lbs but my stomach is extremely distended....

Scan today showed three follicles: all @ 10mm - apparently for first scan this is a good result but what do I know? There are also tons of smaller follicles which should grow during the next few days. Lining is 10mm.

So next scan is Wed - hoping for lots more follies!


  1. Glad to hear things are traveling ok :) Do you know how long you are likely to keep stimming? Will be interesting to see what the next scan shows!

  2. I think I'll be stimming another 6 days at least....does that sound normal? If all ok at final scan next Monday, I believe I'll be triggering Mon and EC Wed.
    Really hope tomorrow shows more...the more I read...the more I think the first scan wasn't that great?
    Thank you for comments - always much appreciated!

  3. remember how i explained that non-baby-making-queer-femme-dykes couldn't understand half what you're writing these days? i still can't. but it sounds positive - YAY!
