My final shot!!

Well, I just triggered a little while ago, so no doubt about it--I'm doing an egg retrieval on Monday morning. We are scheduled for 1st case at 7:45am. Yeah! For those who don't know, a trigger injection does just what it sounds like--it triggers ovulation to occur in exactly 36-40 hours. My doctor will harvest my eggs in 35 hours, however, just before the eggs are released from the follicles naturally. Talk about a specific medicine!!

My last u/s and b/w was this morning. My u/s showed: a lining of 10.4 (which is really good) and according to Dr. S had nice signs of being ready for implantation to occur (yahoo!). In my right ovary, I have 8 follies at 18-20mm (perfect sizes) and in my left ovary, I have 6 follies again at 18-20mm and 3 follies at 13-14mm (my little stragglers). B/W showed E2=1636 and LH still low at 0.4, but I'm not going to worry about it. So overall, everything looked great for my trigger tonight.

I'll try to give an update when my sedation wears off on Monday. Steve and I are so happy and excited for this to be our BFP cycle. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that we will get pg on IVF#1!!!

WOW! Everything sounds so great! Wonderful E2 level and you linning sounds sooooo good. Your in my thoughts and prayers and I hope your Dr gets lots of nice mature eggs that will fertilize well. Be sure to take it easy after the reteval and let DH pamper you.
