Triggering tonight...

We went in this morning for one more ultrasound with Dr. K. None of his staff come in on Saturdays so it was just him and us. He drew my blood and did an ultrasound. The follicles are looking good with about 10 total in the 15-20 range and most of them closer to 20. There are two that are 23 and 24mm but Dr. K said sometimes they don't get eggs out of the bigger ones.

Anyway, he told me to trigger tonight at 7:30pm and I almost fell off the table because I knew what was coming next: Egg Retrieval at 6:30 am on Monday morning!!! 6:30?? In the morning?? I'm not even up at that time on a work day. I'm not very good with mornings but I'm thinking that I'll be so nervous/excited that I won't have a problem getting up.

Part of me can't believe that we're even doing IVF and that all of this is real. So, keep your fingers crossed and say a little prayer for us on Monday morning!!
