We’re officially back from our vacation in paradise and back to work. Tonight is my 6th night of stims and I feel good! I’m a little crampy and slightly bloated, but far better than I expected.
Today I had an ultrasound and our doctor counted 16 developing follicles that are all around 14mm in size. He thinks I’ll have two more days of stims (including tonight)–possibly three. I’m a little bummed my count went down so much since my last ultrasound when he counted 26. Our doc seemed happy with my progress, so I guess I shouldn’t stress.
Chris has his MESA procedure tomorrow morning. He’s nervous about having a scalpel near his manhood. We also got an email from our clinic saying they didn’t factor freezing Chris’s sperm into our IVF costs. So we’re going to be charged $900 to freeze it and store it. This process feels like a money pit. Thankfully, the end is in sight.
