Sorry for taking so long to update. I got home and had to eat something. I was starved and I was hoping the nurse would call me while I was getting something to eat so I could just type one update.

I think my appt went well. I saw the one nurse that never really tells me my measurements. I know I have two good follicles now. I think the rest were borderline. I don't know what borderline means though because she didn't tell me my measurements. But, I know I have at least two pretty big ones.

I am waiting on my bloodwork but I think I will be triggering tonight! She said that since I had two big follicles he would probably want to go ahead and trigger and just hope the others catch up.

So now I am just waiting for them to call.

Woohoo! Nurse just called. I trigger tonight at 10pm sharp. Then I have the retrieval on Saturday at 9:30am. I just made reservations for a local hotel for Friday night so I don't have to worry about driving in snow or being stressed out about getting there on time. I forgot to get a collection cup for dh (or they forgot to give it to me) so I will have to drive over Saturday morning and get that. But, since our retrieval isn't scheduled till 9:30 I should have time to get that, get back to the hotel, and still have time for Kelly to do his thing in time for our retrieval. I am so nervous and excited. I will find out on Sunday how many eggs were fertilized and when I will do the transfer. It should be on Monday morning though. Wish us luck!

Good luck Patty!!!! Sounds like everything is going well. Good idea on the hotel, I'm sure it will be nice to have a more relaxing morning on Saturday.

Yay, Patty! I am really excited that you have gotten so far in this process already (I know it probably seems a lot slower for you!). I will be thinking of you, and hoping those smaller follies catch up!

The hotel is such a great idea, and I'm totally jealous. My clinic made DH do his thing in a dank room with an 80s vinyl couch and a VCR while I was in the recovery room after the retrieval Talk about unromantic! I hope you get lots of Super Sperm since you'll be somewhat relaxed!

GOOD LUCK, and I can't wait to get your updates as you move closer to that BFP!

I feel so bad that I have hardly posted to anyone the last couple days. I have been in my own little world. Today was like an all day freak out for me. I am so relieved now. I did my injection all by myself! My hands were shaking so bad after I did it. I was so nervous that I was going to screw something up but I feel confident I did everything right.

And I am sure everything has gone by fast but it seemed like a forever long process while I was dealing with it. I am sure you guys know what I mean. I just kept thinking in my head are my follicles ever going to be ready. I was just a nervous wreck every day thinking something was going to go wrong. I am still nervous but feeling tons better now that I got this injection over with.

We plan to transfer two embryos. I am very nervous about having multiples so I really want to keep the risks to a minimum.

That is so exciting!!! I love hearing about your IVF experiences. Before TTC I always thought IVF was this extreme, scary, painful option. Now it seems fascinating to me and I've realized that I could absolutely do this if I need to. I can't wait to hear how many eggs fertilized and then of course when you'll get your BFP!

Good luck tomorrow and have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!
