This morning I went in for my baseline appointment and the scheduler forgot to lock me in. My appointment was initially scheduled for 7:45 am and I had to be scheduled at 8:30 am. I decided to walk across to the medical pavilion to the new lab and have my blood work done there instead of going to LabCorp after the baseline.
My bladder was ridiculously FULL. Today would have been a good day for Poise Pads ! I emptied my bladder then went to the lab. I gulped down a bottle of water while I waited. I went back to women’s imaging center and had my sonograms done. Today I had 4 follicles on the left and 7 on the right ! Now I have a total of 11 follicles. I started the process with only 7. I feel a lot better. I would be much happier if I had 20 + follicles, but I guess quality is better than quantity.
My facebook timeline has been inundated with negative postings. Today, a friend of one of my facebook friends went into labor and delivered a stillborn baby which died in utero on the way to the hospital. A few other ladies posted about how they had 12 follicles and only ended up with ONE egg… and other sad tales of woe. I am already on edge and scared about this cycle because I was not taking all those supplements nor doing acupuncture since my miscarriage. I worry about how many eggs I will get and if they are good quality. Now I am freaking out that come Friday, when I do my next baseline, they will tell me to take more meds and do another baseline on Monday. I am praying everything is coming along and I will be able to trigger on Saturday and report to CNY on Monday for retrieval.
Please keep me in your prayers. This is all in God’s hands now…
