Stimulation Meds – Day 10

Day 10 is pretty much the same info as all the other days.  The only change is that the Doc has decreased Jess’ meds.  She had her usual Ultrasound (10 measurable follicles), and Blood Test (E2 at 2332).  This will be her last night of the multiple stimulation injections, her hCG shot is tomorrow.  I think she is looking forward to Thursday, as she doesn’t have to take any meds at all.  The Docs have coordinated the schedule and everything is set in stone.  I have my procedure on Thursday morning at 9am, and Jess’ retrieval is Friday morning at 10am.  I’ve got my fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong.  We have made it this far without a major hiccup!

Stimulation Meds – Day 9

Jess had her every other day trip to the Doc this morning.  They did the usual blood test, and ultrasound.  Her E2 level is 1281, with 9 measurable follicles showing on the ultrasound.  The Doc gave the order today to begin coming in every day from now on.  I guess this means we are coming down to the wire.  Jess has been such trooper with the process so far, especially since most of the past Doc visits, along with all the rest of the Doc visits, are being done on her way to work.  They also told her today,  that tomorrow will be her last day of  her stimulation cocktails (See Below – Meds Taken). She will get the old hCG shot on Wednesday.  This puts my PESA procedure Thursday morning, and Egg Retrieval Friday morning.  Yippee, I can’t wait!!
