Stim Day 7...

I had my third monitoring appointment this morning and everything is looking great. My doctor was happy with my progress, so we are keeping with the same doses of medication. As of today it looks like we have about 20 follies in the running, the largest is about 13.5mm and the average size overall is about 12mm. Thankfully they are all pretty close in size, and it looks like several will be mature at the time of the collection. My E2 level is more than doubling every two days, so it seems like we are on the right track. If that continues, I think doctor's predictions seem right on.
Today my doctor said if she had to guess, she would predict trigger on Tuesday, retrieval on Thursday and transfer the following Tuesday.... which puts the beta on July 28th, the day before our 5 year anniversary.

We're getting very close.... and the egg retrieval is getting less scary by the day. I think by then I'll be less concerned with that monster needle, and more concerned about getting these things OUT OF ME!
