Retrieval on Sunday

Have you ever felt like your life was so ridiculous, that you could have a prime-time sitcom based solely on your misadventures? I have, especially lately. My life has turned into a comedy of errors. I'd love to tell you about them, but my hard drive fried. Yes, again. So I am blogging from my phone, which was very cool for the first few words. Now I am missing my "real" please forgive any typos.

I was really overwhelmed by all your comments and support. "Thank you" seems too shallow a phrase to convey how grateful I am to all of you. I can't imagine walking this road by myself. I hope you will forgive my slowness in getting over to all of your blogs. I have not been feeling great and I am still learning how to use this phone. But hopefully I can get caught up on my reading soon...I am very anxious to see what everyone has been up to!

As far as our IVF cycle goes, C will be giving me my hcg shot at 12:30 tonight. I am more nervous than he is, I think. We are scheduled for retrieval on Sunday morning. I have 23 follies, and at least 20 of them are over 18mm (most are over 20mm). So we've gone from planning transfer on Wednesday (assuming we have something to transfer) to a play-it-by-ear approach. Apparently my estrogen level is pretty high and I look like a prime candidate for OHSS. Yay.

Well, that is way more than I thought I could hammer out on this little keyboard tonight. I'm off to read some blogs, and then I have an appointment with THE needle. *shudder*

Good luck at retrieval! Sounds like they will get some great eggs which will end up as great embryos and bab(ies)! Can't wait to hear how it goes.

Praying for you too, girl! I hope that everything goes well on Sunday. Make sure to stock up on Gatorade. It helps with the bloating, especially if you end up with OHSS.

Good Luck with the shot tonight. What is your E2? I hope you don't have OHSS. The highest mine got one cycle was 5,500 and that was NOT fun. I hope Sunday goes well and they retrieve lots & lots of eggs!

Best of luck tomorrow. Sounds like you've got a bumper crop in there!
Fingers crossed for no OHSS

Hope the shot was easier than expected, and the the retrieval goes well tomorrow. It sounds like you have an excellent amount of eggs, although take care of yourself and do what you can to prevent OHSS (gatorade, right?)! Good luck!
