Will just gave me the HCG trigger shot and we're set for an early retrieval on Sunday. I can't believe we're here already.
Things have brightened since my last cycle update. There are now 7 large follicles and several smaller ones visible on ultrasound, so we are cautiously optimistic that things will go well on Sunday.
My RE did our ultrasound Thursday and said he will try to come in and do my retrieval himself, even though he isn't on call. We are thrilled and touched. Our IVF center is quite large, known for its clinical excellence but not necessarily for being a hand-holding kind of place, so his willingness to come in on his day off is especially meaningful.
We will keep you posted. Thanks, as always, for your warm wishes and thoughts.
Fingers crossed and full speed ahead.
