Thursday is ER day!! YAY

Well, we have a date for the ER. It is Thursday morning!! I do the HCG shot tonight and then get totally hydrated tomorrow and gear up for Thursday. My nurse just called and told me that my estrogen was in the 4200s so they are going to add a medicine to my IV on the retrieval day to help with all the fluid.

There are times like when I was reading the information about after the egg transfer that I get excited..ya know like butterflies in your tummy excited. But I am trying to just not think about it b/c I just don't want to get myself all worked up. I am a bit annoyed right now b/c my allergies are coming on strong and I can't take any meds for them. We have tons of pollen here and I knew it was going to happen...but hoping it would hold off.

My ovaries are so big right now..and it is uncomfortable. I can't imagine having a baby in there..I mean..I know the baby won't grow on my ovaries..but in that general area. I wonder if it hurts or aches when you are first pg from all the stretching and growing.

I am sooo happy that tonight is my last shot for a while..for a long while hopefully!! I gave myself a shot at the RE's office today in front of my nurse. It was a low dose of HCG to get things going. She watched me and I was nervous doing it in front of a professional. Afterwards I asked her if I did okay and she said it was fine.....but..she doesn't understand why all of us put the needle in so slowly.

Nothing else to report...just anxious for Thursday.

Good Luck Thursday! I hope that uncomfortable feeling goes away soon. I'm hoping a growing baby is a little less uncomfortable than growing ovaries too.

I am so happy for you. The uncomfortableness will go away but I only have one ovary...so I can't imagine having 2! Everything sounds like it is going great! I can't wait to hear how many eggies they get! Praying for you!
