Prepared for Liftoff

Nothing too scary at today's follie check. They are bigger than I would like, but no less than 3 medical professionals assured me that my eggs won't a) be over-ripe like a month-old peach, or b) be ovulated on my way to the retrieval. So we'll see.

Right - 24.4
Right - 24.3
Right - 22.2
Right - 21.5
Right - 17.5

Left - 19.7
Left - 17.8
Left - 14.3
Left - 11.1
Left - 2 under 10

Endo - 10.3

I asked about my estrogen since it seemed a little wussy yesterday (at 888). Today it was at 1,296 so that seems like a decent jump. Dr. Google informed me that each mature egg should be giving off about 200 so hopefully that means I'll have 6 or 7 good ones on Sunday.

Don't know what time my retrieval is for Sunday, they won't call until this evening. Thanks to everyone for your support, I can't explain how much it helps!

That is such excellent news!! Hoping they get loads of good eggs now! My doc's told me it was 100 for a mature egg...my E2 was 1488 when they did the retrieval and they got 16 eggs, 15 of which were mature....there may be a surprise for you when you wake up from your retrieval...I hope so!!
