First Monitoring Scan today!

Morning Ladies, hope you’re well! Just wanted to say I’ve been overwhelmed recently by the amount of people I’m not so close to that have reached out and wished me well on my journey! This was following the bbc news interview with Hannah Vaughan that I shared and commented on - it’s so important that we can be as open about our journey as it encourages people to talk! I had a work colleague text me and say that she had just done their first cycle and are now 13 weeks pregnant!!! Anyway that wasn’t the main reason for posting today! I am getting ready to go to the clinic for our first monitoring scan! Feeling excited and nervous at the same time! I’ll let you know how I get on!! Xx

So ladies just finished, not sure how I’m feeling, although I’ve been told I’m doing brilliantly. Didn’t really like the nurse today, she wasn’t very empathetic to my emotions of feeling nervous about what the scan would show! So I have 13 follicles on each ovary, no idea if that’s a good amount?! The right has grown more than the left with my biggest being 15 and then the smallest on the left being 9.5 she said she was wanting them to be above 10, I had 3 below that. I have another scan Monday and I’ve been told to carry on with same dose. She said they need to be measuring at 18 before I have collection. Is this good ladies I just don’t feel ‘brilliant’ based on what the nurse told me! Xx

That is definitely a good thing, they want a nice thick lining for the embies to nest in!xx

I reckon this is fab news and a good number! There is still time for them to grow. Dont focus too much on what the nurse said, it wont matter if they are a bit small just now, they will just continue to scan and adjust your meds when/if necessary....you've got follicles and at the moment that is the main thing!xx

I had 11 on my right and 3 on my left, ended up with 9 eggs good enough for ICSI and had my transfer on Tuesday. Your numbers sound good to me - I reckon you’ll be going for egg collection on Weds/Thurs next week....
