I had my second blood test this morning and I just heard from the nurse with the results: E2 (estradiol) level at 2820.
That's more than double what it was two days ago.
This seemed high to me but when I emailed Dr. T about it, this was her reply:
"Sounds good. Next is an ultrasound... That will give us lots of information."
My next appointment (for my first ultrasound and third blood test) is on Thursday morning at 8:00am. I'm already nervous.
I've discovered why Dr. Google has been less than helpful in providing me with information on what a "normal" estradiol level during stimulation looks like. I think it's because A) everyone is different and there are no real "normal" levels to speak of; they pay more attention to how it rises, and B) Canadian levels are measured in different units than US levels. It's very confusing.
So my frantic Google searches have been fruitless, which is good and bad. Good because I have nothing to fret over. Bad because I have nothing to fret over.
This morning I felt beyond lethargic and I wondered if it was the medication causing my extreme fatigue. I haven't really noticed anything else, except for a bit of a stomach ache earlier today (not sure if that's related to the meds or not). And of course my very sore abdomen bruises.
