Stim Day 9 - We have lift off!!!!!

J and I went in for our second ultrasound this morning.  I couldn't imagine much would change over night but there were changes.  To my delight the biggest change was in my E2!  961!!!!!  I thought we might see some larger follicles or more of them maybe but it never occured to me that my E2 would almost DOUBLE!  I am so thrilled.  This E2 was a huge hurdle in my mind.  As for the ultrasound the technician took one glance at my ovary and said "boy I bet you are sore you have a lot going on in there! " then she turned to J and said "she's not lying if she says she's sore".  We hadn't even discussed me being sore but I have been.  My abdomen is extremely tender.  This morning I told J that I was lying in bed and thought I could trace on my abdomen exactly where my ovaries and uterus are!  We did see more follicles over 10mm, 8 this time on the left ovary with the largest at 12.5 and 11 on the right ovary with the largest at 14.5.  Things are looking great.  The nurse said that they are expecting my egg retrieval to be Thursday. So if this is true it looks like I will be triggering Tuesday night.  Next ultrasound is Monday morning at 7:50.  I can't wait to see progress.  Fingers and toes crossed!  XX  Meds stay the same tonight and tomorrow night.

We have our massages in a couple of hours and I am going to relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend and just appreciate all of these wonderful things I have to be thankful for.  Have a great weekend everyone!
