IVF 2 Stim Day 11 …. LAST DAY OF STIMS ! – The 411

baby- 6th day of stims

HALLELUJAH !!!   This morning I went in for the baseline appointment before leaving for Canada.  En route to Canada, my nurse called to tell me to take my normal dose of meds tonight and take my trigger shot at exactly 9:30 pm on Saturday.  My egg retrieval is scheduled for 9:30 am on Monday !!

Today, I had additional follicles too !  So now I have a total of 14 and they are huge.  I am so glad that I have 14 follicles and hope I have a minimum of 14 good eggs in there to work with.  I know only 1/2 of those are viable normally and only 1/4 of them normally make it to blast.  

It took over 8 hours to drive to Niagara Falls.  Audi’s navigation system is CRAY CRAY !  I saw more or rural America than I care to see.  I have never seen so many trailer parks in my life !  The navigation system took us the scenic route and through the mountains on a lot of two lane highways.  I am used to driving wide open at 80-90 miles an hour and driving 65 or less was not my idea of fun.  My mother was asleep most of the way or reading a book on her ipad.  I ended up reinstating my Sirius radio because all of the stations were mostly country music and alternative music on regular FM.  I could not stand it one moment more, so I added the Sirius back and then I was good to go.

After arriving at the hotel, I immediately got settled in and did my injection.  We went down to the restaurant and ordered dinner and now I am relaxing in my suite watching Criminal Minds. 

I am looking forward to my bestie’s wedding tomorrow. I am going to get some rest and then head over to the Falls tomorrow afternoon for the wedding ceremony and reception. 

Sunday, my mom and I are going to take one of the cruises at the Falls and then drive 4.5 hours to Albany in the afternoon.  My film crew are coming to Albany early on Monday morning so the gang will all be back together…
