Overall, I have been very pleased with how this cycle has gone. I am thankful that I had two great looking follicles, in lieu of the FOUR I had last cycle. I have felt a lot better (minus the stomach flu that seams to have done a number on my intestines. I am still not fully recovered from that). When I got the trigger shot, I didn’t feel like I was dying the next day. I felt functional. I did not experience OHSS this time (woohoo).
I got my P4 results last night: 27.
If you’re not familiar with how a P4 works, it’s your progesterone level at 7 days past ovulation. It needs to be 15 or higher on a medicated cycle. Some doctors prefer it to be over 20. In other words, my level is perfect.
I am so happy with how this cycle has gone. To me, it’s picture perfect. Two great follicles that weren’t giant over-mature monsters, they were perfectly round and perfectly sized. I had one on each ovary so I was balanced out. Last cycle, when my P4 was a 66.99, I felt horrible. That much progesterone pumping through your veins is pretty miserable.
At this point, I’m a little numb to hope though, I have to admit. I’m just in autopilot right now, rolling with the punches, waiting for our miracle, trying to figure out the next chapter in my life. However, I do have some exciting news that I will share soon that is going to open some opportunities in the future. I promise, it’s coming soon. 🙂
