Just triggered! Egg retrieval is scheduled for 8:30am Saturday.

I'm feeling much better. After the medication debacle, I went in this morning and had 6 good follicles. 6! 6 sounds amazing compared to 4. I felt much better. So many girls have been telling me amazing success stories about cycles with poor response or low numbers of eggs/follicles. So I'm feeling more hopeful after that.

And just in case you thought this was all going smoothly- here's what happened tonight. This cycle is seriously like a total comedy of errors. The only drugs I got yesterday was my Lupron Trigger. Today (at 5pm) when the nurse was giving me instructions she is talking about 10,000 iui's of HcG. I told her I only had Lupron and all along I was told I'd be triggering with Lupron. Well apparently the RE changed his mind today and wanted me to use HcG. The nurse calls in a script to the only local pharmacy that has these drugs which is 7 miles from where I was and they closed at 6. Well in DC rush hour speak- I wasn't sure I was going to make it. I dragged J out of the restaurant where we were meeting for Valentine's Day dinner and drove like a bat out of hell through traffic. 7 miles took me 45 minutes. :o And I got there just under the wire. Unreal. This whole cycle is a total cluster fuck! It really will be a miracle if anything works out on Saturday. 


  1. Yay for 6 follies! I'm so glad you were able to get your trigger shot, but I'm sorry you've had so many hiccups in this cycle. I've got everything crossed for you, and I'll be thinking of you tomorrow! <3 <3 <3

  2. Thats awesome to go from 4 to 6 maybe they can find another hidden one in there too!! You never know! GL with ER!!
