Here Goes (and update)

Due to a nice weekend with a dear friend I don’t see often enough (and also an exhausting- solo-momming-weekend while T lived it up in Vegas with some friends), I haven’t been a good updater.  I think it is for the best, as I would have written twice a day about all of my worries, etc etc…


But.  As of yesterday morning, my E2 was 1670.  I went in today for a final blood draw and a final ultrasound, and it seems there are three visible ripe ‘n ready ones on one ovary, and three or four on another, with smaller ones thrown in.  I am still going to hope there are more to find once Dr goes in there.  Yep.  We’re going forward.  No matter my numbers this afternoon, we’ll be triggering tonight with a retrieval on Wednesday morning.  I am so relieved to have made it through another step.  Now I will of course worry that I ovulate before the retrieval ( I worry about this every.time. Drives T nuts.)  My favorite part of this all?  When I am waiting for the anesthesia to work, and then I am blissfully passed out, not thinking about any of this at all.  And when I wake…well I’m too drugged and groggy to understand things right away anyway.  So I wait for that awesome half-hour Wed morning…(maybe I can get my hands on some early, and just sleep through the next 48 hours…)


Also.  Just set up appointment with New Elevated-FSH-Master Doctor down in the city for mid January.  It’s the first available.  Here’s hoping I get to cancel and hang onto the $500 consult fee…


UPDATE: E2 today was 2301.  Lupron tonight…then Hcg later.  Retrieval is 10am Wed morning.  OK, ovaries.  It’s your show now…
