This morning I went in for my last monitoring appointment ! My ovaries are FULL. Most of my follicles are 25 now so I definitely have the bloat thing going on lol. My E2 is now 1800 which is good and is higher that it was my first cycle when I had 12 eggs.
My nurse called this afternoon while I was packing and gave me my trigger instructions and instructions for the next day and morning of retrieval.
I called the car service and made arrangements for them to pick me up tomorrow and drop me to my hotel and I will also have them take me to Walmart to go grocery shop for my week in Albany.
I packed all my stuff and am shipping my clothing and some must have food items to the hotel for early am delivery. I did not feel like lugging a huge bag with me. I can now put my laptop in my carry on bag and my meds that I will need.
I contacted the local infusion center to set up my weekly intralipid infusions. They are contacting my doctor’s office to get all the info and forms needed.
I am beyond worn out ! Every time I have to travel somewhere, I am always running around like mad trying to get ready and making sure I don’t leave anything. Now I have to go hunt down my heating pad that I loaned my mom.
My best friends, both of whom are pregnant, should be delivering soon. One had a baby shower this weekend, and I completely forgot about it. I had planned to be gone to Albany already so I was to miss it anyway. My other bestie is due on November 6th, my late father’s bday. Hopefully all this baby stuff will rub off on me 🙂
I hope everyone else is doing well !
I have been reading your blog with a lot of attention. Thank you for it! I wish you all the best and will keep my fingers crossed that this IVF works out for you! I am in the same boat as you: single, 39, and have just decided to go the donor route. However, what I am wondering about is why you started with IVF and did not undergo IUI cycles first? I am going to start insemination soon. My RE never mentioned IVF…

I never considered IUI at my age. I am pretty inpatient and want to take the most direct route to get the results I want. IVF is a lot more surefire than IUI. IUIs are more or less like planned intercourse and the success rates for my age group are no where near as good as IVF.
Yay! The show is officially on the road!
