Now I'm Out of Order

Ahhhh, this isn't going well...again.

I just had my first scan since starting the stims, and it's not good. Only 3 follicles are making their presence known. I was hoping for at least 5. I have one on my right and two on my left.

I'm to start taking Ganirelix in the mornings and keep up my 450 Follistim and 2 vials of Menopur. I go back in two days for another scan. I'm hoping to speak to NY RE and get his take on the situation Monday.

It goes without saying that I'm very disapointed, I'm torn between writing off this IVF (and all hopes of getting pregnant with my own eggs) and maintaining hope. I guess there's still some sort of chance that things could work out. M is working with the glass half full theory, I'm trying to join him. :)

Later, I'm off to spend my gorgeous Saturday in Central Park with friends.

I hope that those ovaries perk up. Hang in there, sweets.

Maybe you're just slower to respond? Are you talking 3 antrals or 3 >10? I'm in the midst of IVF#1, and after 3 days of stims still only had antral follicles and a barely-there E2. My E2 is still concerning, but more follicles have popped up since then (am on day 10 of stims and have another 3-4 to go).
I hope things are looking better today!
