So here is what my schedule looks like:
I will take my regular doses of meds tonight.
Then at 2:45am, yes that is AM, I will take my trigger injection (Ovidrel). Then I am finished with my injections! WOO HOO!!
Tuesday I will recover from getting up at 2:30 to inject myself and then Wednesday we will show up at the surgery center about 12:30pm and my retrieval will be at 1:45pm. Not hip on being without food or water from Midnight to then, but it is a small sacrifice to make.
Also on Tuesday I start the Doxycycline and then Wednesday after the retrieval I will add in the Medrol and Endometrin.
Then I will anxiously await the call to see how many embryos we have. If we do a 3 day transfer (which I am pretty much assuming we will) it will be sometime on Saturday.
Have I mentioned how excited I am? I just really feel like this will be the one. We had a different protocol, yes I was hoping for about 15 eggs, but I will take what we have as long as they are mature and give us good embryos, which I believe they will.
I am proud of myself that I have stayed positive most of this cycle. Sure I had a few moments here and there where I had some doubt. But I told myself to stop that and go back to my positive thoughts. I ate better this cycle. Heck I even used my right arm for all the blood work (always used the left in the past). So that was even different. And I am also going to take baby aspirin this time starting the day after the transfer. I have heard good things about it and even the IVF coordinator agreed that it would be good.
So I have done everything in my power to make this a great cycle. Now the rest of up to God. I will continue to think good thoughts and just know that our miracle will be here soon! And on that note, here is a little something I made from one of the gifts from the care package.
Thanks for reading!
