Another day...another follicle...

or two...or 3!

My ovaries are cranking into high gear. I'm so proud of them! I peeked at the screen again before the RE tortured me with the vag cam and found out that my E2 was at 1166 yesterday! I'm cooking about 3-4 follies on each side with about 6 smaller ones that still have a chance to catch up. According to Dr. K I probably won't even trigger until tomorrow. (Which happened to be my best case scenario....a Saturday retrieval!)When I took my trigger shot last cycle, my E2 was only 953... No wonder I have been feeling like I have been doing lower ab crunches all day. So sore!

I'm thankful that Mom and Dad were able to keep me company today. Actually, Dad drove both ways and it gave me the chance to catch up on some sleep. I got called for b/w and when I came back,my 2 little baby boomers had their heads back, mouths open and eyes closed. In their defense, I did have them up at 2:30 so we could be out the door by 4:00. And I can't really say much because I dozed off talking to my Dad.....when I woke up I had no recollection of falling asleep.

My parents really are very cute. We had a sleep over Tuesday night because we needed to leave my house so early. We watched Glee (we had fun singing along)and they filled me in on "Dancing With The Stars" since I don't watch that. Every time I asked a question in the car my Dad offered me his Droid to find the answer. Me: "Wonder what the temperature is?" Him: "Check it with my phone" or Me: "Who is in the remake of Arthur" Him: Google it on my phone!" And my Mom caught me up on all the celebrity gossip. I also found out they like "California Girls" by Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg. How hip is that for people in their 60s? It's nice to be able to spend time alone with your parents as an adult. I know I'll always remember the fun we had today and how they saved me from possibly falling asleep at the wheel since I am so exhausted. Thanks Mom and Dad.

I'll be fine driving myself tomorrow thanks to the extra rest and some yummy tea and a Starbucks gift card from a dear friend. Thanks, N. I'm working on the TY note!

Finally, I had an awesome ending to my day by seeing my Acupuncturist. She did her best to alleviate the symptoms: bloat, fatigue, anxiety and to help keep my ovaries cooking without going into hyperstim mode. She also told me that me getting pregnant would be her best Xmas present. How sweet is that?

I'm so lucky to be surrounded by such supportive friends,family and professionals!
