I've been reading a lot of blogs for ICLW and I am amazed that there are so many strong couples out there dealing with infertility. A few of the blogs give me hope that IVF will work for us on the first try and others make me sad and scared that it might not work and we will have to figure out what our plan B is. I am now playing the 'what if' game in my mind. What if there aren't enough eggs for a frozen cycle if the first cycle doesn't work? What if my eggs aren't good quality? I'm so used to failing at pregnancy that I can't help but think the worst. But I'm trying my hardest to be positive...some days are better than others.
I had a blood test this morning (at the lab from hell because the good lab isn't open on Saturdays) and my estradiol level is at 345. The nurse said they thought the level would be higher so they are increasing my injections for the next two days. Monday I have another blood test and our first ultrasound to see how the follicles are doing. I asked when she thought the ER would be and she said she would know better on Monday but thinks it will be Thursday or Friday.
