I am finally getting this show on the road, apparently! I went in for a follicle check both yesterday and today, and although I still didn't have a lot of follicles, Dr. S thought it was enough to proceed with the retrieval. I had four that were between 14 and 19 mm, and a couple above 20. One was over 30, in fact. She said that the ones that are a whole lot larger (greater than 20) are more likely to have poor quality eggs, so she doesn't think those will yield anything we can use. I also had a couple between 10 and 14, and she said those are more likely to be immature, but they would probably try to retrieve them anyway.
So....it's trigger time! Tonight at 9:45 I am giving myself a humungous shot in the rear end. I wish my husband was here to help, but he is on call at the hospital. This is going to require some serious flexibility.
I am glad to be done with the Follistim and Menopur, at least. I can deal with giving myself two more shots, and then being done with shots for the rest of the cycle. Yay!
