qual·i·ty: high grade; superiority; excellence
Back to the RE today, this time we saw Dr. A. Dr. S will be on vacation this week for his daughters' spring break. Apparently he didn't get the memo, no vacations for him while my follies are preparing to be harvested. Dr. A is nice enough; Brad found it necessary to point that out to me today. Anyhow, Dr. A said my follicles are progressing nicely but that he couldn't pinpoint a retrieval date until I come back in on Monday morning for another u/s and b/w. It is now a toss up between Wednesday or Thursday (March 26th or 27th). Dr. A said that if my follies were slightly bigger then he would definitely say Wednesday, slightly smaller Thursday. I asked if he was at all concerned that there were so few follicles. Dr. A said, "No, we're not looking for quantity. We're looking for quality. 5-10 of good quality are better than 30 of poor quality. Everyone thinks you need to have like 30 follicles. When you have that many, the quality really deteriorates." Ok, pep talk acknowledged. Apparently I have quality follicles, very comforting.
