Quick update so I can get back out to my gardening.....
5-7 Follicles on the Left ranging from 1.3 - 2.1
10+ Follicles on the Right ranging from 1.6 - 2.1 (with one at 2.5)
Lining: still "about 13"
So, we got the call this afternoon:
We are doing the trigger shot at 3 a.m. tomorrow morning. We'll be setting a few alarms tonight for sure! (for those not versed in IVF - the trigger shot is a high dose of HCG that will cause final maturation of the eggs and ready them for "ovulation" - or retrieval in our case - in 36 hours.)
No more Gonal F tonight, no meds tomorrow at all. Which has me worried - I thought you usually do Lupron all the way to retrieval? I am just super paranoid at this point....everything has gone so well - I would hate for something to happen now like ovulating on my own before retrieval!
I will go in tomorrow to get blood work and I can't wait. I am definitely missing talking with my nurse, Amber. The nurses this weekend have been really kind and great - I am just used to communicating with Amber and will feel better when I can run everything past her.
SO - Retrieval will be......TUESDAY!!!! We have to be there at 1pm. Which means, I will have had no food or drink for 13 hours at that point? (no food or drink after midnight the night before) That doesn't seem right. I will have to ask Amber about that tomorrow.
But wow. TUESDAY!!! We are really really really gonna do this!!!!
Oh....found out my Estrogen was 2700 yesterday - forgot to ask the nurse today because well, she said "Retrieval" and my head pretty much exploded after that.
I am so excited for this next step!!!!
