A few hours after that last post, I got a call from my nurse telling me that they decided NOT to trigger me yesterday. Apparently there is a note from the RE attached to my file that directs them to let my follicles grow as big as possible before trigger. Wha? Okay, if you say so. Based on that, and that my E2 had climbed quite a bit, they decided I could go another day. Sure, no problem, except that as we all saw from my 2nd picture yesterday, I was fresh out of drugs.
How nice it would be if there was a little IVF Lemonade Stand down the street. I could just pedal my bike there, pay a few bucks, and select the amounts of Men.opur and Gan.irelex that I need. Yeah, like *that* is going to happen. Then maybe the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, Santa and I could sit on our cloud of BabyDust and wait for the New Baby Guy -- like the Ice Cream Man but way better -- to come down the street. He'd be driving a stroller-shaped delivery truck that played lullabies over a loud speaker attached to the roof. I'd rush out, select a lovely little gurgling, cooing infant from the cute pictures on the side of the truck, and he'd smile as he handed me one out the window. Ah, if only...
Instead, what did I do? I panicked. Okay, I didn't actually panic, I fought the rising urge to panic. Luckily the monitoring nurse at my RE's office is a Saint. I was able to drive back there and pick some meds up (they keep a treasure chest of the good stuff).
I went back again for more monitoring this morning because it's clear that they love to suck my blood and take pictures of my Womanhood. All 7 follies are still there, got a little bigger, and everything is looking okay. Once again, I'm waiting for the nurse to call and tell me that TONIGHT is the real trigger night.
Then, after the superfun trigger shot and the equally as superfun Doctor Prescribed Inter.course, I'll drift off to sleep and dream of the New Baby Guy, dressed in a stork costume, giving me my heart's desire. I promise that that if I do ever meet him, I'll send him to your house next!
