Day 12

And then there were nine - follicles that is! A couple of them are still small (but measurable), but it looks like they will have another three days to mature. Just got home from my appointment. We're waiting for confirmation later today, but it's likely that we'll be told to do one more night of stims tonight. Estrogen is at 1225 (UPDATED: 1500+ as of today), and the nurse said that was good.

We go back in tomorrow morning for another ultrasound and blood draw, then tomorrow night we'll do the HCG shot. In again on Monday morning for a blood draw and pre-op exam. Tuesday morning egg retrieval.

Thursday we'll start the PIO (progesterone in oil) shots. Michael has to travel that day, so my mom will be trained to do those at our appointment on Monday morning. Thanks, Mom!

Transfer will probably be Friday or next Sunday. Then I have to be on bed rest for a week. Just called my favorite sub to have her hold those days for me.

It's going to be a busy week ahead.

I'll post again after tomorrow's appointment if anything changes.
