whoo hoo

trigger tomorrow (time TBD), ER sunday
optimistikate says: ET wednesday

details from today:
E2 2496
LH 5.24
Progesterone 1.17
Lining very nice

L: 19.92, 18.26, 13.76, 12.2
R: 17.5, 16.19, 15.86, 14.45, 14.38

She says, right now 5 are looking good for mature eggs, 3 more are possible... all feels good to me.
Of course I wish for more! I always get stim envy for my wonderful egg producing friends. But, the coordinating nurse said again this is a lovely stim for a woman over 40, and, when I asked today, the friendly wand lady showed me an image of one of my ovaries and it has never looked so lovely during a stim. Truly. Like the images on the internet of a good ovary under stimulation. It made me feel better to see it with my own eyes.

Happily, last stim and lupron injections tonight (I have left over meds for my if-need-be egg donor!)
mestinon tonight and tomorrow morning
trigger tomorrow night

medrol start sunday after ER (for 4 days)

and beta on the 21st.
Holy crap. I will pee on a stick before then I assure you.

Oh please
let there be eggs.
Let there be embryos.
Let there be a baby.

Jules a.k.a. Julie said...

Feeling good about this... :-) I'm thinking retrieval of 6 eggs :) And then embies and a baby! Whoo hoo! (And I am not far behind you in age and had nine measurable follies going into ER, with 6 eggs retrieved and 5 mature...) Positive thoughts, Kate!!!

That is FABULOUS!!! I cannot wait to hear about the retrieval!

My fingers are crossed for you...and my toes too (metaphorically of course). I hope the retrieval goes well.

Go Kate! Things sound fantastic, and even though there's absolutely nothing I can really do to influence your outcome, I am sending all the positive vibes I've got to you this cycle. Have been since CD1.

Universe? Are you listening? KATE IS NEXT!!!

IF Optimist, then... said...

Oh YAYYYYYYYYY! I am so happy that you are doing well on this protocol and that everything looks swell. Sending lots and lots of happy love and wishes for a good ER. I agree with the others. OK UNIVERSE, WE ALL VOTE THAT IT'S KATE'S TURN!

Stay in the moment! yay! good stuff!

Lara (NoodleGirl) said...

I am POSITIVE you'll get a good chunk more than 5 eggs with E2 like that. Yay!

Did they say which RE was going to do your ER? Have you ever had a procedure in the surgery center there before? They're so nice!

Will be looking forward to updates!
