Today we went in for another ultrasound.
My right ovary is quite the slacker--it's only holding 6 follicles which isn't the greatest--when my Dr. was looking at it I saw concern on his face---that was until he reached my left ovary that's holding a whooping 15 follicles. He seemed quite pleased that I had 21--I just pray they keep growing!!
My lining was a 4.9; he said thats 'good' but not great...my estradial level came back at 81 which they said is fairly lower than expected on day 4. So they are upping my meds. I will continue to take 150iu in the morning but I will take 225iu at night--they are having to call me in MORE meds because due to this up-age (if that's a word) I will be running short...
I go back Friday for another ultrasound and more blood work.
I asked him if he felt we were still on track for retrieval NEXT week (I can't believe we are so close already!) He said yes--I could go a day earlier, right one track or a day later...but he thinks it will officially be next week--I have an appt Monday and he said we will know more of an 'exact' date then!
OK---not gonna lie---I'M NERVOUS!!! A lot has been going on lately---A LOT!!!!
I found out yesterday that Talbots; where I work; where I am getting this amazing insurance; the place that has brought my dreams to reality and the reason why we have been able to do this IVF is closing there doors July 24th!!!!! I will be without a job---I will 'HOPEFULLY' be pregnant looking for a job--I am trying my best to not stress and worry; Zach told me to phone all my friends and family and we will let them do the job hunting and stressing for us while we focus on this journey right now! But I would be lieing if I said I wasn't scared! We had a 15K allowance on our IVF for a lifetime; after this cycle is over we would have JUST enough for a FET cycle--well if this cycle doesn't work I am not sure if we can squeeze another cycle in before July 24th.
I'm a little freaked out...I don't even want to imagine that this cycle doesn't work! I can't even bare that thought--I talked to my Dr. today and told him our situation and he said 'well do everything we can'. He is an amazing Dr. who I know will bend through hurdles for us...I am just on edge right now...
I'm emotional from the shots; I'm a little nervous that our cycle isn't where it needs to be although my Dr. seemed so happy with it...and I'm so scared about whats next for me as for a job!???
So much going on and yet I am trying to remain positive--please say a special prayer for us right now--please pray my ovaries corporate as well as my lining...please pray that this cycle works and please pray that God guides me in the right direction as far as a job---and please pray for strength!!!
God doesn't put you through more than you can handle....God doesn't put you through more than you can handle.... repeat....repeat...repeat!!
