No wheels on my wagon...

I have not been able to post as Blogger is fucking about, as per usual.

Monday, we were down to 5 follicles over 10mm.

Today, we are down to 3 or 4 follicles over 10mm.

Friday, final check as I will have stimmed for 14 days at that point. I think it will be pretty moot that retrieval won't be happening as clinic limit is 3 follicles at least for retrieval. The way mine are taking a dive, I don't think we will have 3 by then.

There is already a lot of talk about "next time". Different dosage, different protocol, different strokes for different folks.

The only thing is that protocol demands a 3 month break between IVF cycles so there are going to be a lot more gardening posts again.

Oh, my dear, I am so sorry that this protocol doesn't seem to be working well for you. The three month break--of which I'm at the beginning right now--seems like an eternity, but at least we can get through it together if this cycle doesn't do the trick for you.

I am refusing to give up hope for you, and will be willing those 3-4 follicles to keep chugging along.

Much love,

Fuck! Why couldn't they fit a protocol to you better from the beginning of this?

Damn doctors, I don't think they should be giving the next time speech until the cycle is over, they should be working as hard as possible to make it this cycle.

I'm also going to keep hoping you get those three or four follicles you need.

Hoping those three hang in there.

As hunky Chris Martin might say.... everything's not lost... keep us updated. I am thinking about you.

Bollocks! Hoping that Friday brings the right amount of follicles for you.

I'm so sorry. I know how frustrating it feels when protocols go badly. I still have hope for you that this will turn around.

Well, crap. I'm so sorry. I sure wish this shit didn't suck so badly.

So sorry to hear this. I'm still hoping they will turn around.

Damn, I am so sorry. I hope you get some good news at your next appointment.

Thinking of you.

Oh no, that's bad news. But I'll hope that somehow the follies catch up and there will be more follies on Friday!!

But there is always the next time.
