Follicle Growth - Advice?

So y'days day 7 scan - 6 maybe 7 follicles which nurse said was good improvement on baseline (struggled to find 2), but that they were still very small!! She was encouraged the Gonal F was stim them though and said I might just take longer to stim!! Cancelled Wed scan and back Fri instead!! I'm such a worrier tho....how many days can you stimm for?! Any advice on encouraging follicle growth ladies? 🙏 xx

Hello, try not to worry you're in the best possible hands - I found acupuncture helped me with getting more follicles. Good luck and try to relax x

I was told to drink 2-3L of water a day and as much milk as possible as is apparently really good for folicle development! Never had to pee so much in my life though! 😬

Good luck with the stims I did 12 days of Gonal F and had 8 folicles xx

I'm with you Leo. I had my day 7 scan yesterday and I have 9 follicles but she said they were small. I need them to grow by tomorrow's scan.

Yesterday I put a warm hot water bottle on my belly to help.

Praying for healthy follies for the two of us! 🙏🏻 grow follies!!!! 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

It's so hard not to be anxious isn't it!! On one hand delighted she's found some on the other now desp for them to grow!!

I was due to have scan 2moro but we have a 3 & a half hour drive to clinic so as I'm stimm slowly told to hold off until Fri app'mnt!!

Water, someone said eat lots of protein? & ive heard the hot water bottle one as well...I'll get on to that!!

Praying for some good strong follies for us both!! 🙏 🤞🏻 🍀 Hope tomorrow goes well!! xx
