Really really almost there!!!

Good appointment at the doctors office this morning. Dr. B was all smiles during my ultrasound and I was quite happy as well. Yesterday I had one mature follicle and this morning, I think most of them were mature. In the end the follicle count comes out to be about 21 or so with my biggest measuring 24!!, but not all of them will contain eggs. Still, that's a pretty darn good number. My uterine lining number was 12 tri... whatever that means.. still good though. By the end of the ultrasound we got the news we've been waiting weeks to hear, I'm finally ready!! My HCG shot is to be done sometime tonight. They will call me sometime this afternoon to give me the rest of the information but tonight is the big night for the butt shot! The nurse came in and drew a happy face on my butt to show my husband where to give me the shot. Nothing surprises me anymore after going through this process. After tonight, I get a whole day of being shot free!! And the Wednesday morning is the big day for the retrieval. Super excited, but still praying AND really starting to look funny when I walk. My ovaries are ginormous, and they hurt and I'm still waddling all around the house, my husband thinks it's hilarious and has started waddling everywhere now too. It's a pretty funny sight. Also, I've moved from Robitussin to Sudafed so I feel SOOO much better and not so sick anymore. Looking forward to getting this shot over and done with!!! Yikes. Talk to you all soon.

Lucky! My protocol is a bit slower then yours...I'm looking at a Thursday or Friday retrieval. Best of luck to you!

They also said that my estrogen levels were a bit high at around 4,000 so my HCG shot is to be cut in half... Hoping for the best though.
