Miracle Grow Please??

Dear Ovaries,

I am asking pleading & begging you to please cooperate with me...PLEASE PLEASE sprinkle some love & miracle grow on my follicles! We need them to grow BIG so that we can take them out and fertilize them so a little baby Pifer can be placed back in my tummy---I would appreciate this muchly!

Thanks--Tiff

My follicles----they 'are' growing, just very slow---very very very slow! My follicles should be measuring about 16mm today; my right side is averaging 9mm and my left side is averaging 12mm...defiantly not where they should be...BUT they are growing. So although my Dr. is annoyed with my little ovaries he still has hope because they are growing, just not at the speed in which he would like...

My lining on the other hand is 'AUH-MAZING' it's a little over a 10 (they like for it to be an 8 or higher) so this is great, he was very pleased... and my estradial level came back at 1436 (they said it supposed to be around 1000 today) so they again are pleased with this...due to my lining and my estradial being exactly where they want them to be they will 'not' be upping my meds...

What does this mean you ask??

It means that our retrieval that was supposed to be this Thursday will NOT be this Thursday...

I have another appointment on Wednesday at 9am; he is hoping & praying that I will be ready for a Friday retrieval; but he did mention with my slow growth I could possibly go over the weekend or even on Monday--I'll know more Wednesday.
I asked him if the thought of canceling my cycle has entered his mind--he said 'NO' (whew-Thank God) He said that as long as I GROW even if it's slow it's ok, I just have to GROW! However, he did say his concern is that slow developers can stop growing all together and that is why Dr's don't quite like to see this happen.

Can someone please tell me where I can get some miracle grow for my follicles???

Here is a little reassurance...I had to stim for a whole month!!! I was in the exact same boat as you are right now. Well, after a month of shots they did the egg retrieval...and needless to say I have twin girlies!! Do not cancel the cycle...it may just take you longer like it took me!

I feel like all I have to tell you is from my experience, and I'm sorry for that, but hopefully it can be comforting? I'm a slow grower too!! My last retrieval went 4 days past the projected date. But like your dr, cancelling never crossed his mind. He just wanted to make sure we got the eggs at their absolute best. I'm soo sorry it means more injections for you, just think of it as perfecting Baby Pifer? In my prayers!

My follicles took an extra day to grow, too. My retrieval was postponed a day. Your uterine lining and estradiol level are great. I think it's good the follies are slow-growing! I think it's better to be a little on the slow side than too fast. :)
