Its all happening

I went to the Dr on monday morning and my follies looked great, she measured tons! Here they are:

They also told me that I would be triggering that night. The nurse drew sharpie boxes on my butt/back to show justin where to give me my daily injections of progesterone and this trigger shot. Arent these snazzy?

They called me this afternoon and told me that we would need to do the trigger injection at 1:30am. They also told me that my e2 was 5068. This is bad... its wayyyyy too high and OHSS is a serious concern now. We set alarms and woke up and justin have me my trigger shot and I was so proud of him, he did a great job!

This morning I had to go back in for another monitoring appointment just to make sure that I had not already ovulated and to draw more blood. Dr.J told me today that severe OHSS is a real possibility for me and that I may get seriously sick before transfer and have to cancel it and freeze all the embryos. I really really hope that this doesnt happen but for now I am not going to think about it. I dont know what my e2 was today but I will ask tomorrow.

Tonight we packed up the car and drove to akron. RGI booked us a hotel room so that we would be up here and ready for our ER in the morning. So here we are at the Hampton Inn and I am ready for bed because I FELT AWFUL TODAY. I came home from work early and didnt move from the couch.

ER tomorrow at 12:30, we have to be there at noon. AHHHH!


  1. Good luck! Coming out of lurkdom to wish you good luck and no OHSS!!!

  2. I'm so excited for you! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for no OHSS! I like how Lola is in the sharpie box pic :)
    Call me if you need anything or want to chat...I get off at 4 today!

  3. Em- I know! She is a total photo-bomber like your husband!

    Jodi- Thanks for all the luck! I need it!

  4. My husband and I are going through our infertility process privately with only family and a handful of friends. I find comfort reading other blogs and realizing that we are not the only ones with problems. I started my 1st round of Femara 5mg this month after 5 unsuccessful cycles of Clomid 150mg. I have an appt on Friday to see how I've responded to the medication. May God answer your prayers and Good Luck with ER...
