Ultrasound Update #1

I had my first monitoring u/s (ie., appointment with the ever-so-fun dildo-cam) this morning for this cycle. I was so happy that my favorite nurse was there to do it. Not only is she really nice, but she is so quick and efficient. When you are growing all of these follies it gets really painful so the quicker they can get in there and 'git r done', the better. Here are the stats:

Lining: 7.9B
Follies: 23

I had the nurse look at my previous two fresh IVF cycles and here were the stats at the same time in those cycles:

Lining: 6.0A

For those reading this, I'll translate in really simple, non-super technical terms. My clinic likes to see the lining at a minimum of 8.0C. The number (8.0) stands for the thickness of the endometrial lining and the letter (C) is for "triple stripe", which tells you when your lining is ready for transfer.

Also it looks like my ER will be on Thursday, May 7, instead of Wednesday, May 6. I go back to the clinic on Saturday morning for another u/s.

23 follies sounds really promising:-) Also your lining is nice and thick already. Seriously, so far so good. I think you should start getting excited.
