He said my uterus looked perfect.
He said my hormone levels were always good.
He said my body was absorbing all the meds very well.
He said I'm the PERFECT PATIENT :) Because I follow everything they tell me and I take great notes and I'm very attentive.
My embryos just aren't developing how they should. It could be an egg quality issue but it's not an OBVIOUS egg problem.
He said it's just a statistical issue. He wants to increase my QUANTITY with round 2 so we can have a better chance of getting at least one good quality embryo.
Dr. D spent a good 40 minutes with me and I could tell that he really cared and he really know my chart inside and out. He remembered how my ultrasounds looked, he remembered my treatments from last year. It was so nice to visit with him and ask him ALL the questions I could think of.
This round he's having me take Coenzyme Q-10 vitamins and he's increasing my Gonal F in order to increase my egg quantity.
I felt SO GOOD by the time I left. I just felt so good about the Dr. being commited to getting me to a healthy delivery.
TODAY I went in for baseline ultrasound and bloodwork because I started my period yesterday and I'm going to California tomorrow morning. I met with the IVF Coordinator and she gave me my apopintment schedule and we reviewed my current med inventory so we only order what's necessary. They're shipping my meds to the condo in California that we're staying at, and I'll pick them up tomorrow when we check in. We'll be doing injections every night while we're there, even at Disneyland. I'll go to a Quest Lab in CA on Tuesday for blood work and then an ultrasound and blood work at Dr. D's when we get back on Sunday next week. Egg retrieval scheduled for May 24th.
IVF #2 payment is made. Here we go again...
