Time for the big shots...

Trigger time!!!!

So, I just got the call. I am triggering at 11:30. Retrieval will be sometime Saturday. I don't have a lot of time for a clever post because I need to pack and get some sleep! We have to leave the house at 3am because I need to be at Cornell bright and early (6:30 am) for my pre-op appt.

My E2 was at 1580 yesterday and after dramatically lowering my Follistim to 225 last night, it still shot up to 1750 this morning. Yikes. I've gained 4 lbs. No wonder I need to walk around holding my lower stomach. It's hard to pee and my thighs and hips ache. I'm moving like I belong at the nursing home.

They are giving me 1/2 dose of the HCG...only 5000 units. I have never heard of that before. And I have been around the block a few times as you well know! I hope my eggs are ok. Last I knew from my monitoring this morning, I have about 7 follies ranging from 13.5 to 17. There are several + or - 10. I hope we didn't sacrifice quality for quantity. I suppose I could use your T + P if you have any to spare.

I am exhausted and once again, looking forward to those few sweet seconds of anesthesia before the retrieval.

I'll update you all as soon as I can.

Thanks for reading!


  1. You're doing great! Maybe they're half dosing you to keep your levels steady while triggering you? IDK. I've only been halfway around the block, but I haven't heard of that either. Either way, squeee for trigger time! I'm super jazzed for you!

  2. Wow, things are really moving along, your E2 sounds great,so excited for you. Good luck tomorrow!

  3. cant wait to hear how it goes! I will be thinking of you and praying all goes well. Please remain positive and try not to stress-easier said than done I know!

  4. Good luck tomorrow! And oh how sweet those few seconds of anesthesia before ER really are! :)
