Day 3 and 4 of stims were more painful than Day 2.  I have been feeling a lot ovary pain and dizziness.  Yesterday on the way into work, I had a nausea spell but was able to overcome it with deep breathing and having a snack as soon as I got in the office. As usual I am feeling more discomfort on my right side than my left which makes me think my right ovary is producing more than the left.

Today-2

Contiuning the sock theme and wore my two peas in a pod socks to our ultrasound today.  It turned out I was right about my right ovary.  We had 10 measurable and 8 less than follicles on the right, 4 measurable and 8 less than on the left.  One of the follicles on the right is measuring at 15mm (Dr. wants them to be 18-20 mm), so I have started my Ganirelix this morning to suppress my body from releasing these growing follicles. We will see if my meds get adjusted after blood test results this afternoon.
