Triggering tonight


with retrieval set for Friday.

Ultrasound this morning showed bunches of follicles all jammed up against each other. The ultrasound tech asked how I'm feeling and I just said fine. So then she said, "Aren't you sore? Don't you feel bloated?" Well, matter of fact, yes I do, but didn't think to mention it really. She seemed surprised by my blase attitude about the discomfort. In my book, the ovarian discomfort is a good thing. I'll take it, hands down, no complaints.

Will and I spent the day in Boulder and the surrounding area, hiking in the foothills in Chautauqua Park and dining at a great Northern Italian restaurant called Frasca. Their chefs trained at French Laundry in Napa Valley. Mmmmmmm....Off to bed early with HCG scheduled for tonight at midnight. IVF physical and bloodwork tomorrow but otherwise a low-key day medically.

This is it. No turning back now. Oh, please let all of this be worth it.

  19. I haven't had a chance to post, but I've been following. Wishing you nothing but good luck and a great retrieval. Can't wait to hear your awesome report (because it will be)!!! You are such a strong person, both of you are!

    And on a side note, I love Colorado. We used to vacation there every summer and I dreamed I'd move there one day. Alas, I'm stuck in this Texas heat forever. ;o)
