Rather than flooding the board with multiple posts about my cycle, considering its not your usual TTCAM, I will just have this thread and update here as needed.

I had my first u/s today. The call-back nurse said to take my last BCP tonight and let AF arrive this weekend (should be brief since she said my lining was expectedly thin). I will start stimming on Monday: 175IU Follistim

Is it totally normal of me to worry now that my 21.3mm one is going to O early and ruin my life? I asked the RE's nurse about 3 times on the phone and she promised me it will time out just right. Sigh...
Trigger shot in T minus 8 minutes.

Thanks everyone SO much for your support.

Not such an awful diet, although I'd be tototally sick of it and looking at food sideways by day 3 or 4 or eating that way!

good luck this morning Chouli! I'm sure the trigger and timing is all working out perfectly and you will get tons of great eggs. KUP.

I had the pre-op appt this morning. Yikes, no one told me I'd have to douche tonight and tomorrow morning! Ew. For the days between ER and ET I'll be on another antibiotic (just finished 10 days of one), and a steroid (have no idea why). They explained the ER. I was worried that I'd have to have a needle jab for each follicle. They said they reposition the needle w/o withdrawing and resticking. They also said we'd know how many eggs were taken before we left to go home, but they don't call until 3dpER to let me know how many made embryos. Beta on 7/12 - so anytime we get a July list going, sign me up.

the steriod is usually just to make sure there is no swelling in the reproductive organs (sometimes there is because of the trauma of so many follicles) I'm so incredibly excited for you and sending some major prayer your way!!!

Warning: Sudden eruption of hormonal pity party to follow

I am a big, fat, bloated, uncomfortable, dizzy, nauseated pin cushion with occasional headaches!! My face still hurts from my fall. My DH is hovering all the time. I have to sleep on the sofa b/c the bed is too high for me to climb up like this and my back feels so stiff. I'm looking at 2 invasive procedures and another 2 weeks of light duty/bedrest. I'm bored. All I want to eat cake, pie, and bread but I can't. PLEASE those of you who are already moms, tell me this is worth it!
