Just got off the phone with the nurse. I am triggering tonight!! So egg retrieval is set for Monday. However, they said my estrogen (estradiol) level is over 5,000 now so I am only taking half of the trigger dosage. I also have to take an Rx (baby asprin and Dostinex) starting today to try and prevent Ovarian Hyperstimulation, because I am at risk since my levels are so high.
Also, since it is so high we have to do assisted hatching with the embryos before transfer. I am not sure what exactly they do with assisted hatching; just that it costs extra. (of course, haha).
This morning at my ultrasound I made it a point not to pay attention to how many follicles I had. I don't want to stress over it, and we'll get what we get. However, they did say I have "a lot". And when the nurse called she again said "you have A LOT of follicles" so hopefully it'll all work out. Also at my ultrasound they said my ovaries and everything looked really great, and that they couldn't look any better. That's a good sign I think.
Trigger is precisely at 10pm tonight. It will be my first intramuscular shot....ugh! Not looking forward to Adam stabbing me with a 1.5 inch needle in the upper booty. Guess I better get use to it though. Might have to steal some of Macy's emla cream. :) (jk).
