The donor is stimming away. On Wednesday, February 17, she started on 150IU of Gonal F and one 75IU vial of Menopur.
- After five nights of medication...
First BW = 918
Meds reduced to 112IU of medication (not sure of the Gonal/Menopur breakdown)
Re says, "donor is responding very, very well."
- After six nights of medication...
Second BW = 1095
U/S = 6 measurable follicles in the 13-14 range, lots of smaller ones which RE hopes will blossom.
RE is cutting donor's meds again because "slow and steady wins the race."
- Donor's going in for BW and U/S tomorrow.
Updates to come.
I'm trying not to get too emotionally involved. I can't do anything to help or change things, so I'm resigning myself to being a spectator. My donor communicates with me on e-mail, and she's really, really an angel. Win or lose, I need to be grateful that she gave me a shot at motherhood.
