Thanks Davina!

AFM - I'm off today and just trying to get the house cleaned. I have a friend who is a herbalist and she has a sound therapy bed-which has affects on the body somewhat like accupuncter, but she says is more powerful. I went to her house to do a session on it, but after explaining to her the whole ivf process, she decided it would be better if I didn't do it now. She said that the therapy works with your body to help it do whatever it is trying to do, and balances and cleanses. She was afraid that it might speed up the process and maybe make me ovulate to soon or something. She said if she lays on it when she is expecting AF, it will come 2 days early. I was a bit dissapionted cause I was really looking forward to it, but don't want to take any chances. I am going to try to schedule a session for the day after retrieval, and try to schedule a massage before instead. It was good talking with her anyway; she is a really good friend (is 1 of the ones that set DH and I up). And she gave me a tube of organic lotion and bubble bath to cheer me up Smile.

I'm trying not to stress about everything that's going on, and leave it in God's hands. Easier said than done. Ovaries are getting heavier and I started having some pain in them yesterday. Tongue That's a good sign that things are moving along as they should!

My appt this morning went well. I had good follicle growth and nice thick lining. In right ovary: 12 x2, 14 x2, 11 mm. There were some RF <9 mm; I don't remember how many. Left ovary: 13, 15, 11, 10 x2, 6 RF < 8 mm. It's so exciting to watch the dr count and measure them. He thinks I will have 3-4 more days of injections. OMG it's coming up so soon! My next scan is Mon and he kept me on the same dose of meds for the next 2 days. He said my hema was confident that the platelets would come up in time. I wonder if the smaller ones still have time to catch up? I hope on Mon they'll be able to tell when retrieval will be.

Grrrr.....My mom called me this evening and informed me that she is away visiting a friend who lives 3 hours away and won't be back until Tuesday afternoon! My mom is a nurse and she is supposed to give me the trigger shot so I really hope I won't need it tomorrow night!!! I am slightly annoyed at her right now. She knows this is the week; why couldn't she just stay put? Hmm...if tomorrow they tell me I need it that night, I will have to come up with a backup quick!!

Excited about my appts tomorrow! My dr (hema) will be so excited when I finally get pg! We have been talking about this for 4 years and it's finally about to happen! I love my dr. He has the best bed side manner--always gives me a hug when he walks in.

Thanks Davina and Tiffany!

I had another good scan this morning. My lining was 10.5. Right ovary had 2 @ 17 mm, 16, 2 @ 15, 14, 13, and 10. Plus 3 RF less than 8 mm. In left ovary: 19, 17, 13, 2 @ 12, 11, and 4 RF less than 9 mm. FS said retrieval will be Thursday or Friday. So my mom will still be able to do my trigger shot. My next scan is tomorrow morning. Still waiting on the post-bloodwork call to see if I need to adjust my dose.

I went from there to get a 30 min massage with the massage therapist at work. Very much needed.

Platelet count is 112,000! Woohoo! So everything is looking good and moving along smoothly.

Retrieval will be Thursday! This morning @ my scan right ovary had 11 total: 24, 20, 20, 19, 17, 17. Left ovary had 10 total: 21, 20, 14, 14.

I got the call this afternoon with my instructions, how exciting! I am to take the same dose of Gonal-F tonight, but no Lupron. I am supposed to get the trigger shot tonight @ 11:30 pm! My mom is coming over here to give it to me. No shots tomorrow. I have an appt tomorrow morning for bloodwork only, to check my HCG level. We need to be at the clinic @ 11:00 on Thursday and retrieval will be at 11:30. I was hoping it would be earlier. NPO from midnight til 11:30 the next day sounds hard! Oh well, I guess I can try to sleep late.
