Cycle Day – 12 (hCG Trigger Shot)

What a day!!  It was a race from start till now.  I began the day with a call from Jess, who was a bit frantic about our Cetrotide delivery (which by the way is about 2 days to late!!).  I ‘m not going to even get into our dumb insurance company and their stupid rules.  All I have to say is thank you to IVFNJ for providing us with meds we needed free of charge.  The delivery of Cetrotide we got today, is going to be donated back to them to replenish their donor stock. 

The next disaster of the day was trying to get a appointment with my primary for my medical clearance for my surgery.  Jess, got real close to full panic mode, and probably used all her cell phone minutes for month, and it’s only the 3rd!!  The receptionist was really nasty and short with Jess.  After a brief but nasty exchange, she finally got me an appointment and got all the paperwork faxed for me to bring.  Apparently, I am as healthy as a horse (so says my doc)!  I got my medical clearance and headed home to wait for things to come together.  Unfortunately they never did.  Jess’ docs did their part.  My doc dropped the ball.  We didn’t find out for sure until about 5pm, after about 500 phone calls.  They finally let us know that my surgery was on for tomorrow, and what time I am scheduled for. I’m getting the old Slice and Dice at 7am, wish me luck!!

With that behind us, lets move to tonight. Our house mommy/savior arrived safely.  Jess’ cousin Lori came form Pennsylvania to help us out for the next couple days.  For one, I need someone to come with me to surgery in the morning, because Jess has to get her blood test and ultrasound at the same time.  We also need a runner for my baby batter, once it is extracted.  I have to go to recovery after my surgery, and the goods need to be delivered ASAP.  Jess is going to shoot up to Hackensack to meet up with us as soon as she gets out of the docs office.  Lori is going to run the goods to Somerset, and Jess is going to wait with me until I get released from the hospital.  None of this would work without Lori’s help.  And for that, I have to thank her!  Lori, you win best cousin of the year for that one!!  Love You!!!!!!

 We will be doing the hCG trigger shot for Jess tonight at 10pm.  This puts her for her egg retreival at 10am on Friday.   My retreival is set for 7am tommorow.  Let’s hope everything works out!! 

Jess’ symptoms for the night – she generally feels ok, slight headache, but in good spirits.  Tummy is the same, but it must be nice to only have one shot to do tonight.  She will probably feel like she is in heaven tomorrow, when there are no shots to do!!!!  Now is the time for everyone to cross their fingers and their toes!!  We need all the help we can get!!
