I did a cycle of letrozole with a new RE. It was a rocky cycle. I started out with 5mg letrozole. My first ultrasound (cycle day 12) showed only one 12mm follicle and a lining of 5.6mm (thin). My RE put me back on 7.5mg letrozole cycle day 12-16. I had an ultrasound cycle day 20 and only one 16mm follicle and my lining was thinner…3.5mm (I was told this was likely due to technician error because your lining can’t decrease that much w/o bleeding and I didn’t have any). Cycle day 22 I had another ultrasound and had two follicle…one 18mm and one 15mm…and a lining of 6.5mm. Cycle day 24 I had my final ultrasound and two 21mm follicles (one on each ovary) and a lining of 7.5mm. I took my trigger shot that day…July,29.
I took a pregnancy test today and it was positive! I also took one yesterday and the day before and got super faint positives. Today it was even darker though. My RE nurse actually told me not to test until tomorrow (12dpo), but I could not wait! Also, I know it was not a false positive from the trigger shot because I tested last Sunday and it was totally negative, so I know the trigger shot is totally of me. I am excited but full of questions. I am having cramping? Is that normal? Sometimes they are actually sharp pains. I am hoping that does not signify an ectopic pregnancy. Nipples are sore and I think bigger. Also, I go to my RE for lab work this week. What will they test for? I know they check hCG and progesterone. Anything else? I am really hoping/PRAYING to have a successful pregnancy. Also, I am wondering if it is twins since I tested positive at only 9 days past ovulation. Since I triggered late Monday, July 29, I was told I would probably ovulate July 31. When I tested Friday and got the faint positive it was only 9 days after my calculated ovulation. Does this mean my hCG is high and likely twins? Does anyone have experience with this? I did have two big follicles when I triggered. Any advice/input is appreciated! Thanks!!!
