Pulling the TRIGGER....

Thank goodness the day has finally arrived! I woke up this morning so ready for today to be the day, and thankfully it is. We're triggering tonight!

I had my monitoring appointment this morning and as my doctor had predicted my follies are nice and large and ready to be aspirated. The largest were measuring around 21mm- the right side was lagging a bit with six mature or very close (+several smaller), but the left came through with around ten mature or super close and 6ish that were possibilities. My lining was around 9.5mm and had the triple stripe pattern.

But wait, there's more! My E2... well, it is ridiculous. It more than doubled again since Sunday's appointment which isn't exactly a good thing. I think the level was 4792... which is a little on the excessive side, and makes OHSS a very possible issue. So as of this afternoon, I'm hydrating like no other and start a high protein diet swearing off carbs and sweets until I'm in the clear.

Tonight I have one last follistim (50iu) and lupron dose and then the trigger... then my friends, injections are OVER!!!! Hooray!
