It's Almost Time

Well, it's almost time.

Had my stim day 13 appointment yesterday.  Here's where I was yesterday:
  Lining: 10 mm
  Right ovary:  16.5, 15.5, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10
  Left ovary: 21, 18, 15.5, 14, 13, 13, 11

It seems like my lining has shrunk, but the nurse is not concerned.  Sometimes it's a matter of angle.  Also, it looks like one of my eggs have shrunk, but again, it could be sometimes the measurements aren't 100% accurate.  The nurse couldn't tell me for sure if I would trigger last night or today.  It would all depend on my blood work and Dr. Hopeful.  I was hoping it would last night since I didn't want to have to order more Meno.pur.

Well the nurse called me back in the afternoon, and I was to trigger last night.  So last night I had my HCG shot at 8:30.  Babe did an awesome job with that and it didn't hurt one bit.

I am now scheduled for my egg retrieval at 8:30 am tomorrow (Friday) morning.  We have to be at the clinic at 7:30.  It looks like Dr. Hopeful will be the one performing my egg retrieval.

Please pray that the procedure goes well, and that the they will retrieve a good number of mature eggs.  Also, pray that they may be able to access the right ovary.

Well I also had my job interview yesterday.  I think it went fairly well.  I was pretty nervous in the beginning, and may have rambled on for a bit.  But they only spent the 1st half hour asking me questions.  And the other half, it was my turn to ask them questions.  It ended up more like a Q&A session.  All in all, I think the interview went well.  I thought it was going to be 2 interviews, but this is the only one.  They are still interviewing more candidates next week,  so I will find out in a couple of what their decision is.  Of course I hope they offer me a job, but I'm just glad that it's over.  Now I can just focus on the rest of the IVF cycle.

So tomorrow morning it is!  Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow.
