My CCRM IVF Journey

Our successful journey through IVF #2 at one of the world's top fertility clinics

Getting Close

Posted by auntiem10 on August 20, 2010

This morning at my ultrasound, the lead follicle was 15.9mm. A mature follicle grows to about 20mm before ovulation takes place, so my little lead follicle has a little bit of growing left to do. CCRM wants me to have one last ultrasound + some bloodwork on Sunday morning, at which point the follicle should have grown to about 18-20mm. The plan is to inject Novarel (an HCG trigger shot) that same day. Ovulation will occur about 36 hours later, and AF will arrive about two weeks after that. This process will shorten my normal cycle by 7+ days and will allow us to get restarted on this crazy path to pregnancy. : )

I’m estimating that our new calendar will result in a tentative ER date of 10/14/10. Ten has always been my favorite number for some reason, so an ER during the 10th month of the 10th year (of the 2000s) has to be good luck!
