3/17/12 - Ultrasound and Blood Work, Pre Op Exam

This morning I took delicious cupcakes from the best bakery in town to the fertility office. Hey, I think it's smart to bribe the people that have your dreams in their hands. All the girls in the office were freaking out over how delicious they were. It was a success :)

Blood work was normal. Ultrasound was good. 23 eggs!!!!! The average is 10 - 15. It's good that I have a lot of eggs but it does make me at risk of OHSS ( )

I should know or feel if I have ohss within the next few days. If I DO, they would not be able to do a fresh transfer. I would transfer a frozen embie next month.

Since everything looked good to have the egg retrieval on Monday, they just went ahead and did my Pre Op today (blood pressure, heart and lung check).

I LOVE the staff at the fertility office ESPECIALLY the dr. He is sooo nice and thorough and caring and smart. I feel like I'm in such great hands. Just sayin.

I asked him again about his recommendation of transferring one embie instead of two. He still recommends one. So, I'm going to stick with that. If it doesn't work this time, I'll transfer two next time.

HEY! I'm done with the 3 injections I've been taking every night. Yay!!! Oh, but there are NEW ones...

I have to take "trigger shots" at a very specific time coordinated around my retrieval appointment. This "specific time" for me happens to be 1:30am tonight!!

The HCG injection makes me ovulate and the Lupron injection helps me to not get ohss (according to the nurse today).

I have a blood work appointment tomorrow (Sunday) and my retrieval appointment is Monday at 11:30am. The thing I'm MOST concerned about is that I can't eat or drink after midnight the night before. This girl gets HUNGRY!! Ok it's not the most important, but it does make me sad.

After the dr appointment I got a wonderful and relaxing facial. Then took a nap and at night went out to a new Mexican restaurant with Corey and my brother, then friends came over to plan a camping trip and watch movies. My ovaries were sensitive and crampy all night, but overall it was a nice day. Good night.
