Today marks day 9 of my stims. I was at the doctors this morning for yet another round of blood work and ultrasound. They found 28 follicles which sounds great, but really not all of them will mature and not all of them will contain eggs, but still 28 is a pretty good number. The biggest one was 17 the smallest was 10, whatever than means.. I've given up trying to decode the doctor talk. I'm also starting to get frustrated because it feels like we are so close yet so far away from my retrieval. The first time we spoke with the doctor he said it would be the 14th or 15th, which is Monday or Tuesday, then this past Tuesday he said it would be either Tuesday or Wednesday and this morning he said it would be either Wednesday or Thursday. I guess this is because he said they are growing very slowly. He also asks me every time I go in if I'm bloated and crampy and basically asks how I'm feeling. Well, I'm not bloated, and I'm not all that crampy and I was so worried this morning because maybe that meant that something was wrong. He said it was just fine. I really hate this, I can't figure out what I'm supposed to be feeling. At the moment all I feel is fat, so I guess I do feel kinda bloated.
If my retrieval is Thursday, then my transfer will be between Monday or Wednesday, and if that's the case then I'll be on bed rest on Thanksgiving. YAY!! Its a good thing everyone is coming to my house so they can all cook for me! Also, my wonderful husband took this whole week off thinking my retrieval would be around Monday or Tuesday so he could be here for the retrieval and bed rest, but now it looks like everything is happening a couple days later so after speaking with my mom this morning, it looks like she'll be packing up her suitcase and coming somewhere between Sunday and Tuesday and staying until Thanksgiving. Lucky her!
So I guess I have to be patient. I have officially been on hormones so long that I've gone from like semi-bitchy some of the time to full out mega-bitch all the time. And what is sad is that I know this and can't do anything about it. Thank you, hormones! Here's to praying we hear something good tomorrow morning. I feel like I'm in the dark about this whole thing even though I'm really not. Like I'm just kind of sitting around waiting and its taking forever. Well that is all for today, talk to you all soon. :)
