2nd Follicle Check

I had my second follicle check on Saturday.  I had a 26mm follicle.  I'm not sure if it was the same one from Tuesday because it was on a different ovary (supposedly).

They gave me a 5000iu HCG trigger shot and told me to go home and get busy!  So we did just that!  We're not horn-balls at my house, so 3 days in a row 'bout killed me and my DH.  HAHAHAH!

I've read conflicting information on 26mm follicles.  Some say that is "too ripe" and some say it could be a cyst. What does NaPro say about that size?  I've e-mailed my NaPro doctor during this process but haven't heard from her.  I'm wondering what NaPro people do in this situation.  Do they receive progesterone support?  I have orders for a P+7 blood draw, should I do that?

My RE said not to do anything and take a pregnancy test on May 20th.  I'm supposed to POAS whether or not I'm bleeding.  If I go back to how my cycles were before HCG LP support, I will probably start on the 16th.

This is going to be the worst TWW ever!!!


  1. I can only comment that Dr. H loves his peak plus 7 draws and they are useful whether or not you are pregnant, so I would do it. Three day in a row would be quite the special occasion at our house, lol. Praying!

  2. I think it would be prudent for you to go for an ultrasound tomorrow... but the problem is, most REs won't do that after the trigger. They don't "believe" in LUFs.

    26mm isn't too ripe. But it depends on what it looked like. I've seen them get to that size and rupture normally. It would have been good to see it yesterday and compare that to today's... if it was 18mm and simple in appearance yesterday, and then 26mm today with some low-level internal echoes, that may give us cause to think it's indeed "too ripe" and possibly not rupturing normally. But in and of itself, it really would be most helpful to check to see if the trigger forced rupture or not.

  3. Lol at the hornballs comment!!! :-). I'd do the P+7 Bloodwork. I'll be praying for you during this tww!!!

  4. Haha 3 days in a row would be a record at our house too! I second the others, do the bloodwork. Praying this 2ww goes by fast!

  5. I'd definitely get the bloodwork done. That way your doctor can tell what was going on.

    Prayers for you!

  6. Ha Ha at the hornballs comment! Praying may 20th gets here before you know it!
