Hi Hope_faith. Seems like you are progressing satisfactorily, so that's good to hear. You're aiming at your leading follicle to be 17mm or more and your womb lining 8mm or bit more, so looks like you are well on course! You know I wish you HUGE luck and for a positive outcome. Diane

Hi hun on my first scan I had about 17 follicles on each ovary measuring between 7-11mm I was also on 150 and was told to stay the same. They collected 31 eggs. I did have to abandon my fresh cycle with high risk of ohss but I didn't get it. I ended up with 11 day 6 blastocyst frozen and just got my bfp yesterday on my 2nd natural fet so your measurements sound just like mine good luck with everything xx
