Retrieval Day — Thursday, May 10th!

Dr. D just called and my retrieval is scheduled for Thursday at 11am – Yippee!!!. He instructed me to take the HCG trigger shot tonight at 11pm — exactly 36 hours before the retrieval — and to arrive at the office on Thursday no later than 10am. The HCG shot is a super dose of hormones that will force my 16 eggs to mature in preparation for ovulation. On Thursday morning, the doctor will capture the follicles as the eggs mature for ovulation, and will then fertilize each mature egg with hubby’s sperm.

To prepare for Thursday, I will go in for blood work tomorrow morning and will have a pre-surgery meeting with the nurse. I also called the pharmacy and ordered my next round of injections — progesterone. Progesterone will help my body stay pregnant (woo!!!), but the injection apparently sucks. It doesn’t matter as long as it work :)!

Happy baby thoughts!!!

    I’m jumping up and down, but you can’t see! I’m so excited for you guys!

  2. This is so exciting. Best part of the retrieval is that you get knocked out. One minute I was getting an IV in my hand and the next minute it was all over. Love that. And, those eggs you’ve been growing will be out and ready for some party time with Hubby’s contribution! So much fun. Rest. Relax. Breathe a sigh of relief. You have done everything you could to set yourself up for success. Yah!
