All triggered up and ready to go!

Today is Day #12. And this morning - at the lovely hour of 1:15am - my husband so perfectly gave me my HCG trigger shot. Today was my last monitoring appointment before retrieval tomorrow. Yay!

An update on the previously discussed bleeding - it's been quite scary - I started bleeding on Friday and it continued pretty heavily on Saturday and started tapering off yesterday. Today it is pretty much done - thank goodness. This morning, my RE said that my lining looked thin but hopefully it will thicken up once I start taking progesterone and I do still have 4-6 days until a transfer would be scheduled. Keeping my fingers crossed. If it doesn't thicken up enough, they will freeze our little embies and reintroduce them to us next cycle.

On a positive note, my RE said I have "great looking follicles." Sounds like a pick-up line, huh? But that is great news and, while I'm not likely to produce an abundance of eggs, last time I asked him I was up to at least 7 good follicles. I didn't ask him today.

I'll give the official tally tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to the valium :)

  1. Yay for 7 good follies!

    (But seriously...Valium, not IV sedation?)

  4. Congrats on being done with stimming, and I think 7 sounds like a wonderful follicle count! And what an awful HCG trigger shot time. Wow! Thinking of you, and I hope retrieval goes beautifully. :-D
