Antral Follicle count is 16 (they only count follicles that are over a certain size, so this is a good number!)
And our donors BMI has increased since she last donated. She's a bit on the short side, so it doesn't take much for it to get high. They said they could see her ovaries easily, but that it might take a bit more medication to stimulate her.
I was a bit worried, but now I'm back to being calm. The coordinator reassured me that the reason they like to have the BMI lower is that that sometimes they can't see the ovaries. I know that some clinics say it affects egg production, there have been plenty of women who've done IVF with their own eggs who had high BMI's and made lots of eggs and got pregnant, so I'm not going to sweat it.
She had her genetic screening done, and the results should be back next week, then she'll start her period around the 24th of April, and start lupron with that cycle! SO COOL!
I'm going to take a pill break next week. The choice was to not take a break and go straight from pills to lupron, but I'm worried about being over suppressed and not getting a good lining for the fresh transfer, so a break from the 19th to the 23rd, and that will likely get us all nice and coordinated!
I'm just going to let myself assume that her other two clinics did fragile X and Cystic Fibrosis screening and she passed and that the rest of 94 chromosomes are going to be OK. Our sperm donor passed the expanded Jewish panel with flying colors (that's over and above the 96), so hopefully there are no weird undiscovered outliers. Amen.
I'm in my usual kind of productive in-between-cycles hibernation. I'm reading, and commenting,and so grateful that you are all still following this long drawn out saga. Oy.
