Retrieval on monday

Last scan this morning and all looks good. I think I have 20 follicles in total and 14 are of a very good size. Also I was scanned with a different (older) machine and even the measure of the lining (incidentally the best I ever had!) was less than 2 days ago so I am thinking there may be a couple more follicles in the "right zone", but we all know this means nothing till you have actually eggs and then embryos. So I don't want to have my hopes up too much as the disappointment the last time was massive. If I don't hear anything this afternoon from the clinic, I'll trigger with the full dose on saturday night and I'll be the first one in the morning going through the procedure.

In Oliver's world things are well, he had his first cold which had him up at night (and us too!) even more than usual, being quite uncomfortable and slightly feverish. But yesterday he was already much better and last night...oh yes, last night we NEVER had to get up! I'm looking 10 years younger this morning!! And it's just as well...we had the official opening of our new research facilities and the Prime Minister was on the premises...big big deal as you can imagine, in difficult economic times you have to really show that your job and research are worth the investment.
Finally we had another full on alarm with the sensor monitor. It happened one the afternoon, Oliver was actually awake and all smiley when Mike run up to check on him. Mike had heard him cooing seconds earlier so we are now absolutely certain the thing it's false alarming on us. I think Carlito may have started playing with the cable that connect the under-mattress sensor pad to the unit...I have to say I'm so so relieved!!!

  1. Woohoo for retrieval on Monday! How exciting!!!

    That sucks that Ollie has a cold. The first of many unfortunately... And how scary with the sensor monitor - glad to hear it was just a false alarm!

  3. Moving right along, on all fronts!!! Glad Oliver got past his cold rather quickly. Mommy needs to be well rested for retrieval. :)

  4. That all sounds great (except from the monitor acting up, but at least false alarm is better than a real one)! Good luck with retrieval, I'll be thinking of you!

  6. Hope those follies keep growing. Sorry Oliver is sick. I hope he gets better. It's not fun to see them sick and up all night. I'm so not looking forward to that.

    P.S Got a post coming on EC soon - managing to catch baby's poos, never thought I'd say this, but it's so exciting when I do!
