2nd progress scan, follies not that good :(

Hi all,

Had our 2nd progress scan today and as per the title our follies haven't grown that much. We have 2 at 12mm and the other 9 are about 8mm - 11mm. My lining is now 9.5mm which has gone up from 7mm so I had a blood test to check my levels (will be back this afternoon) and then will be told later if I need to up menopur or not. Nurse said our EC will probably be pushed back a couple of days to let them grow but this will be confirmed on Friday.

Keep your fingers crossed for me, hoping my follies keep growing like they should. They don't want to over do it because they are worried about OHSS. I am drinking lots, eating lots of protein and keeping nice a relaxed. Just hope my follies keep growing and lining gets even thicker by Friday. The days really do seem long, and is it silly they I want to feel bloated and uncomfortable so I know they are growing?

Anyone else had this? xxx

That happened to me as well. They doubled my meds and it did the trick. Things are going in the right direction though, it obviously just needs tweaking. It's easier said than done because I did the same but try not to have dates fixed in your mind(for EC etc) because you will get there in the end and you will be glad you waited those extra couple of days if it gives you the best chance of fulfilling your dream xxx

Hi LauraGU, yeah im happy they are going in right direction, slow and steady wins the race I guess!! I think the hardest part of this process is work haha, I feel bad on work not knowing when I will need off but my manager is so supportive which is really helpful. Thanks for your reply, settled my mind that things will be okay :) xxx

Hello TTCs, my oestrogen levels are a little low so they are upping my medication for tonight then back to normal. Hopefully this will kick start my little follies to grow a bit more. So encouraging that this happened to you and all is well!! Good luck for your EC xx

Hi oharal. That's a shame, but hopefully an increase in Menopur should do the trick, as they're not that far behind. Good luck! Diane
