CD 11 Update

Not a very creative title, but accurate.

Went in again today for blood work and ultrasound. My RE was excited to see that he knows exactly where my ovaries are without having to look around because he’s seen me so frequently. Whatever. Left 1.12 (no longer in play, Right 1.8 and 1.9. Trigger tonight and retrieval is Friday morning.

This time I’m not taking Ovidrel – I don’t believe that it worked for me for my IUI. My RE never confirmed this with me, but I’m taking 10000iu of Chorionic Gonadtropin. I guess that tells you how well the Ovidrel worked. You have to mix this stuff and I’m pretty sure it stings.

This all just sucks. I am really trying to stay as positive as I can. H. is so positive and hopeful; I wish I could be in the same frame of mind as him. I am feeling cautious. I really don’t want to get my hopes up. Sigh.

I’m just going to stick with my plan. Take one step at a time and move through this process. I am going to be as positive as I can be. And, then just wait to see what happens.

You are still in the game, sweetie. There is no turning back now and all you can do is keep the hope going as you move through each step.

I hope the trigger went well. I will be thinking lots of happy healthy egg thoughts for you on Friday! Update when you feel up to it.

Hugs, hugs, hugs.

Hi, Been away for some time and am I'm playing catch up here...

Lost in Space is right - you are still in the game! Moreover, I have heard stories about single egg retrieved and being successful.

Hope your Fri ER run smoothly!
