Step 3

Trigger Shot.  I can't believe Egg Retrieval is so close. Thursday at 10:30 they go in and grab all these eggs.   It seems like just yesterday I started BCPs for all this.  ---Deep Breath---  I get more and more excited for Thursday as the day goes on.  My nurse called today with tons of instructions for what to do to prepare tomorrow night.  I have to take doxycycline and no food or drink after midnight.  We are supposed to arrive at the clinic  at 9:30 with picture i.d.s at hand.  I think the picture ID thing is funny.  But I guess it is to ensure that they mix the right sperm and eggs.  It is nice to know that they take precautions so we don't end up like some soap opera story where the woman gets inseminated with her enemy's egg that was mixed with her husbands sperm.  Yikes!  Still, bad things could happen.  What if they can't get any eggs?  What if none fertilize?  What if none divide?  I just want it to be Friday already so I know what is going on.  Better yet, can we just fast forward to beta day.

I know, this is all so nerve wracking! It's hard to accept that so much is out of our control.
Besides the IDs, everyone that talked to me on Monday asked me my name and date of birth. It seems excessive, but I guess it's just precaution like you said.
wishing you lots of luck tomorrow and the days following!
have a good retrieval and a quick recovery. :)

I am so excited for tomorrow I know you will have a TON of eggs!!! Changing R.Kelly's song,"I believe you'll have eggs and I believe they will divide away, I know a baby is not far away so take a breath and let it go..."

I just picture that popcorn popping noise with all of the eggies! I am praying for great fert report results and also that you don't get OHSS. Ouch. It sounds like your Dr. is being proactive from your post. Please update when you hear.
