Medication(s) administered and dosage(s). Stimming phase: day 9. AM Lupron 0.5mg (5 units) injection. Today is TRIGGER DAY!! WHOOP WHOOP!!!
Medical procedures undertaken. Monitoring vaginal ultrasound and Estradiol blood tests check 3 on Thursday & 4 today, Saturday!
Any results? Uterine lining 13mm and several follicles >21mm, a few more at 19mm and some smaller ones between 11-18mm, I’m not surprised I’m feeling so sore and bloated! They are much bigger than any of my previous cycles!
What are my symptoms? Wow I am ready for these eggs to go. I am feeling much more bloated and sensitive in my ovaries than any of the previous cycles. Headaches and tiredness galore.
How do I feel today? I am feeling positive. I’m feeling excited. I’m feeling ready!!! I’ve had three days off work keeping myself busy with fun things like shopping, knitting and baking!
Today at a party I was playing with a little girl and someone who I had just met a few hours earlier asked me “so when are you planning on having one of your own?” I turned around slightly surprised and replied to him in front of everyone in the room, “hmmm soooo in about 9 months time!!”, he said “Oh, umm, wow” taken aback at my response, “You are trying now?” I said “Well, yes, as of next Saturday I will be pregnant…..we are going through IVF!!”. Everyone in the room looked a little unsure and shocked at my bluntness!! Then I got a whole sea of “Oh Congratulations!!” “That’s awesome!!!”. It’s funny how open I can be about it all now.
What’s next? Trigger tonight at 9PM and then egg retrieval surgery is on Monday 0630 AM!
The Final Countdown!!!
