Hey! A happy post!

Thank you, thank you, for your kind comments. It's so nice to know there are people out there rooting for me.

Well, today is a different day, a different story. I set my alarm for 1am so I could do the trigger shot at 1.10am. Did it, it all went fine, got back into bed at 1.15am. Except I couldn't get back to sleep for a long time. And then I woke up in the middle of the night having a nightmare about my poor kitty being badly badly injured and me trying to call an emergency vet service in the middle of the night to have her put to sleep to ease her suffering, but my hands were shaking so much and my mind was stressing that I kept dialling the numbers wrong. And then when I finally got back to sleep a crying baby in the next room woke me up. And then the alarm was going off again at the ungodly hour of 5.20am.

So I was pretty groggy this morning for the post-HCG retrieval instructions meeting at which they tell us what to do tomorrow. There are 12 or 13 retrievals tomorrow. I think I am number 11. Or maybe number 10, who knows. Anyway, they are estimating that my retrieval will be at 10.30am. Ish.

But! Here's the good news - Big Clinic does an ultrasound after trigger for another follicle measurement. My old clinic never did that, so it's new to me. And there was a 20mm follicle on my right ovary! The doctor said "Whoa! Was this really 11.5 yesterday? Maybe this says 18.5 and I just can't read it right. " To which I told her that it was indeed 11.5 yesterday. She exclaimed several more times at how surprised she was that it grew so fast. I asked if fast growth was a problem, and she said no. Not sure I entirely believe her, but man I'm VERY pleased that it did that. It gives me hope that maybe just maybe I'll get more than 4 mature.

The ones on the left looked more evenly sized. The big ones hadn't grown much, if anything. In fact, I wondered if the RE yesterday only did one measurement and not a combination of two. But the smaller ones had caught up some. So would it be very greedy to hope for 6 mature eggs? That'd be nice, huh?

great news - these follicles are just like the little engine that made its way up the big hill with the mantra "I think I can, I think I can"
