Ready to trigger

My dears, I didn't have a second today to update the blog. Did you notice the new look? I thought I needed a change so after various attempts at changing things I'm happy with the result!

Anyway, I had my final scan today, I think they counted over 14 follicles above 14mm and 4 around 10mm. Lining looks good at 10.4 mm which I think it's the best I ever got. Now, they took blood also for E2 with the agreement that if I didn't hear anything I would have triggered with 10000 Units of Pregnyl, otherwise they would phone me.
And sure enough...
E2 is quite high, around 10000 (thankfully I lowered the Puregon!) so I'm to trigger with only 5000 U of Pregnyl this evening at 9.30.
ER is on wednesday at 9.00. I better be the first one!! And hopefully the moron won't be there to take pics of us!! They hope in this way I won't hyperstimulate as I'm borderline for OHSS with these values and number of follicles.

So strange how I responded much more to a lower dose this time around. Ah well, we just take it one day at a time and see how it goes.

  2. Love the new look!

    Good luck with everything. Thoughts and prayers are with you. You have a great team and great numbers.

    xxoo

    PS- I think I had the same photographer that you had, though I didn't realize what he was doing at the time. It wasn't until six weeks later when I was there for intralipids and saw our pictures in the front of the file. Weird.

  4. You are nearly there! Your numbers are wonderful (and fingers crossed that they don't get any more wonderful). It's strange how different the response can be from one cycle to the next, but this time it sounds like the moon and stars are aligning:) It looks like the eggs in those follies can't wait to show what they're made of. Will be thinking such good thoughts for you on Wednesday. (And I love the sunflowers!)

  5. Those numbers sound great! I hope they are all excellent quality. I can't wait to hear how many they get on Wednesday, and then how many you have to pick from on transfer day. :)

    P.S. Love the new blog look. It is very sunny and positive. It shows hope and happiness.

    *Big hugs!*

  11. Good luck... I am praying for a good bunch there! As far as OHSS is concerned - I had close to 60 follicles up until the last scan, and I was shit scared! Though things were not as bad! Drink LOOOTS of fluids (from now on until after the ER) - can't emphasize enough!!!

  12. Praying you don't hyper-stim because everything otherwise looks great! So, Wednesday morning it is! Then the exciting fert report and then....pregnancy! How many embies are you planning to transfer?

    And I LOVE the new header! "Girasole" happen to be one of the things I loved most about Tuscany in summer (fields of them by the millions!) and it's my favorite Italian word (turn to the sun).
