I am pretty gosh darned excited that we will be going in for our egg retrieval bright and early (7:15 am) Sunday morning! Dr. M says that she think that we will get 13 mature follicles and says that is a good number. She feels our quality of eggs will be higher than if we had more. She also said it is healthier for my body to have fewer eggs, with the biggest bonus obviously being less of a chance for OHSS. My estradiol is 2762, so I get the full dose of HCG trigger at 10,000 IUs.
The next hurdle to get over, of course, is my dear husband giving me the trigger shot tonight at 8:45. Wish us luck on that, since he can hardly bear to be in the same room when I give myself the injections. No matter what, we will get it done, but I just hope it is as painless as possible.
So excited and nervous, all at once! This is getting so real!
