This morning, I went in -15 degree weather to the women’s imaging center for my ultrasound. Guess who has 12 follicles? ME !!!! I am glad that the follicle count is increasing, which is indicative of my body returning to normalcy after my miscarriage this past summer. After my transvaginal and pelvic ultrasound, I trekked over to LabCorp and got the blood work done. It is really sad when the entire staff KNOWS you ! They are all rooting for me too.
I got instructions from my doctor to remain on the same medication dosage and return on Monday for another ultrasound and more blood work.
From the looks of things, they anticipate my egg retrieval being on Friday, February 27th. I was thinking it would be on Monday instead. I have a monitoring appointment on Wednesday, and depending on what things are looking like then, they will let me know if I am to trigger Wednesday night and again on Thursday night for a Friday morning retrieval. That puts my embryo transfer on Monday, March 2nd, for a three day transfer. This time, I am doing a double trigger and doing a three day transfer in lieu of a five day. Dr. Kiltz wants to put back all of my embryos on day 2 or 3 and take it from there. He feels that putting them back in earlier will possibly increase my chances of them sticking and staying. Fingers, toes, legs, and arms crossed ! Prayers sent up….
