I just got off with the lady from the clinic and they bumped my follistim up to 225! (I was taking 150 before, and took 150 the whole time). I guess my estrogen was still low-- something like 26 or 27? I don't know those numbers- maybe I should look it up.

I told her I don't want to behaving sextuplets and she said that I'll get lots of little follicles but that the other ones will grow better. The most renowned doctor in the practice (my doc is on vaca) was the one who made the decision.

Though I'm nervous, I'm glad now that I switched over. With my estrogen still being low even on the shots, who knows if I would have ever responded to the clomid?

Hmm... I found a chart that says the estrogen should be 2x what it was on day 3. Well, on day 3 I think it was 24. So... I guess an increase was in order.

Sounds like they are very proactive! It also sounds like this was the right move to take next to get your healthy baby!
