Follistim worked too good for me this time. I went in for blood work and an u/s and on Monday morning. I got a call that afternoon from one of the nurses at Chicago-IVF. She said that my estrogen went thru the roof. She also said that I have 6 mature follicles, so they needed to cancel the cycle. There is too much of a chance of multiples which is dangerous. She said not to have intercourse until my new cycle starts. I thought: 3 weeks?! Really. Bummer. :/

Let's just say that we don't listen well. I got a new Chicago Bears outfit for Bear's Day and Mike actually finds comfy clothing sexy on me. Needless to say halftime was fantastic. LOL

So, I may have 6 babies in 9 months. Ha ha. Actually, I had EWCM on Tuesday/Wednesday. I decided to use an OPK to check ovulation on Thursday and I got a negative. So, I am not really worried about it.

Anyways, now I get to wait to start a new cycle and then start Follistim injections again. Hooray. :/

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Wow! 6 mature follicles already!! It's always hard to listen to Drs when all you want is to get pregnant. Best of luck!! Hoping at least one sticks and there won't be another cycle1 for a while

Bummer. Sorry that your cycle was cancelled but hopefully the drs can figure out the perfect dosage so that you don't over-respond next time!

Sorry that your cycle was cancelled but maybe you'll get that BFP still :) Yay for the comfy clothes!!
