Trigger tonight and Retrieval Tuesday

Well, it’s official now, egg retrieval will be Tuesday morning. Trigger shot of HCG is tonight at 10:30 pm. My butt hurts already just thinking of it.

I am just glad to have it scheduled. I like schedules.

This morning’s U/S was hopeful. We have 2 follies that are too large at this point (which we expected), but the good news is that there are five more that now measure right, so that is a net gain of three extra potential follies as reward for waiting the extra day to trigger. I still refused to count follies today but C. thinks it’s 15. We’ll see. What really matters is how many are mature enough for ICSI and then how many actually fertilize. Last time we had 16 retrieved, 10 mature and 9 fertilized, 3 transfered. Sadly, none stayed for the long haul.

This time I really don’t care that much about any one step in the process. What matters is the outcome. All I care about at this point is that the whole mess does not end in another BFN. Fellow cyclers (cyclists?) Thalia and Sube are having similar thoughts on the matter.

We are going for broke here. Bring on a bona fide, viable, BFP at long last.

Please, oh please . . . whatever divine entity might be listening . . . pretty please.

    All the luck in the world for both trigger and retrieval. I keep it all crossed, especially that the embryos are going to go nesting and stick around this time.
