No More Shots!


Yet another appointment that went off without a hitch on Sunday morning. The RE again mentioned the word "perfect" and "beautiful".

25 YES 25! She counted 25 follicles over 10 mm. More than likely we won't have 25 eggs, but we do indeed have 25 follicles, which COULD possibly yield 25 eggs.

My trigger shot was giving by my lovely husband at 12:30 a.m. It stung more than I remember it stinging. Tonight we will head down to Palo Alto and stay the night in a hotel near the hospital. Retrieval must be done 36 hours after the trigger, otherwise the eggies will drop on there own so it is VERY important that we are not late, and you never know with traffic, so staying in Palo Alto will put our minds are ease.

Egg Retrieval is set for 11:30 a.m. with a check in time of 10:30. Not sure why, but I am nervous. Nervous to be put to sleep and mostly nervous for the outcome. Last time I awoke to the news that we had only 9 eggs, I pray this time I will be awoken with good news along with a FANTASTIC fertilization report the following day.

Last night at at 12:31 a.m. Gabe and I announced to each other that we are officially done with shots! My bruised belly was thankful and we are thankful that thus far things have gone smooth.

Crossing fingers that everything continues to go smooth tomorrow and the blog will be filled with good news. I will update when I can.

Even our Ozzy is crossing his paws for us.

Tiff -
Thinking of you and sending positive thoughts your way! I hope the retrieval goes smoothly and you get lots and lots of mature eggies that ALL fertilize into beautiful 8-celled, AAA+, embies! :-)

Next time you can stay in my guest bedroom. Which I hope there isn't a next time.
