IVF #3 – Trigger Day !!! – The 411

baby - ivf 3 trigger day

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 !

  1. 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…

  2. 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.
