Today I had W. W saw the left follicle and it was still about 15mm which is ok. She said they have induced ovulation when follicles were only 14mm and women have gotten pregnant. The right follicle seems to be stalled in growth and W told me sometimes the dominant follicle will cause any other follicle to stop growing.
I was just hoping to have one egg on the left and one on the right so when the sperm are in there, no matter which way they decide to swim, there will be an egg for possible fertilization!
W wasn’t 100% sure what is going on with the right follicle. She told me with different people doing each ultrasound with different ways of doing things, there is room for some discrepancy here. And we are talking millimeters. Tiny millimeters.
I am thankful for that still perfectly shaped left follicle. W, as well as S, said that is a perfect follicle. And I know if this is the appointed time for us to conceive, we will, no matter how many or how big the follicles are.
Tonight at 9:00 P.M. I will receive the hCG shot to induce ovulation. Insemination will be Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1. We have to be at the doctor’s office at 7:30 A.M. for the insemination process. The schedule is the same for Sunday. After washing the sperm, the sperm will go through a “swim test” and the hope is to have at least 20 million healthy, mobile sperm for insemination. W said today that women have gotten pregnant from just putting in 5 million. After all, it only takes one sperm!
