Well, that's brought me down with a bump

Today I had my first scan to see how well the eggs are developing...and the answer wasn't good.

We've had six of our ten Menopur injections, but only three follicles have developed - and they are quite small.

We were hoping to have about 14 follicles ready by Friday, which would then be collected next week. Now it seems unlikely that any will be ready, meaning we'll be prescribed even more Menopur injections. We need the follicles to increase from 10mm to 17mm, or they may cancel our egg collection altogether.

It's not quite the end course, in theory you only need one good egg for IVF - but this significantly reduces our chances.
