Did the Letrozole work? Are we ready to make a baby? We will find out.
Day 9- OBGYN Ultrasound
I walked into my OBGYN office with confidence that we were going to have plenty of follicles growing and was actually a bit scared we would have too many and Dr. G would advise against us trying this month.
The tech started out measuring the uterine lining, 7.5mm, wahoo! It’d gone up, without any help from the Estrogen patch.
Then the left side- lots of black circles on the screen.
The tech counts 3 follicles, wahoo!
Now we are talking. One of them looked like it was within the string of pearls often associated with PCOS but she counted it anyway.
The largest follicle on that side was 9mm, so still pretty small, but a good start.
On to the right side- 3 follicles, get out! 6 total, wahoo!
Now we have some contenders with the largest on this side being 10mm.
I’m feeling pretty good, although a little surprised they weren’t larger after being on this different medication.
I have the tech fax over the report to CCRM and wait to hear from them.
They didn’t get the results.
I call the office and have them resend.
It takes a few hours for a clear copy to go through.
Lesson learned: take a copy of the report with me to scan and send myself.
Why are dr. offices using fax these days anyway?
It’s now late afternoon and I’m getting impatient. What will the doctor have me do?
I get a phone call, it’s my sweet nurse Gina. She has the kindest voice, so soothing with a bit of chipper on the end. It’s as though she has a smile on her face as she says every word.
Dr. G wants me to do 3 more days of Letrozole, 2 pills each.
Recheck in 4 days, done!
Well… at least there’s some forward movement.
I relax. Everything will be ok.
