IVF CD11: I’m triggering today!

Hi everyone.

I woke up this morning and made an early morning trek to the weekend monitoring location.  The sonographer told me that she was fairly certain I wouldn’t be seeing her again. She said my follicles were beautiful, uterus looked perfect, and I looked ready to go.

Great news and I went on to church not even thinking about it any more.  I enjoyed a good service even though the church didn’t have power after an area outage, came home and did some follow-up bible discussion with S.  Incidentally, it is such a wonderful thing to have a husband loves God as much as mine does.  We spent a few minutes discussing topical questions and scriptures from today’s sermon.  My father-in-love is a reverend and taught his children the Word of God very well.  When I need help with interpretation or just want to discuss the Word, I know I can count on S.

Anyway, right after we’d finished the last conversation and had turned on the DVR for Sunday football, the phone rang and, per the ID, I knew it was our fertility center.  She told me my estrogen count is 4528.  My lining is 13 today.  I also have 13 measurable follicles with the largest being 22.4 mm.  I trigger tonight at 10:00pm.  I’m usually in the bed or going to be about that time, but trust and believe this is one appointment I will not miss :)

I’m fortunate that my trigger is subcutaneous, which means I can just slip it in the skin under my belly like my other shots.  I go to the doctor for blood work tomorrow at 7:45 a.m.  I take my zithromax with dinner tomorrow and then show up Tuesday at 8:30.  I am so excited and so nervous.

But I’m ready!  I’m also stopping on the way home for pineapple.  Got to get this core!

I will talk to you all soon.
