Wooo! Always like to start a post with a whoot and not a whine.
I had my second scan yesterday and there was good news. All is progressing well but not quite so well that I’ll have my egg retrieval tomorrow…we are waiting until Monday instead. This is what I was secretly hoping for as it means my Dr will be back from his time away and will do my egg retrieval. YAY! It also means three more days of needles but I think it’s an OK trade off.
I have no idea about all the details of the scan this time as the Dr who did it isn’t as particular about writing stuff down as some other Drs. He likes to keep everything in his head it seems. Seems a pretty shit place for it but anyway. So he didn’t tell me exactly how many follicles and each individual size or my endometrium lining measurement. He just wrote a range down on my form and sent me off on my way. However when I visited the clinic to get more meds they said he had spoken to them about my visit and was very happy with my progress. So YAY!
I filled my acupuncturist in on all this when I was having yet another treatment yesterday afternoon (more needles ugh) and bless her cotton socks she said if I was going to be up there for another scan on Friday that I could make an appt for another session with her at NO COST. She just really feels that I could use the extra support before the egg collection on Monday (and to be fair I’ve spent probably around 2 thousand with her in the last 3 months but STILL). She is worth her weight in gold this woman. I love her.
So if all goes well with egg collection Monday I should be having a transfer next Friday or Saturday. It feels too soon to be hopeful about that yet though. There seem to be so many things that could be game changers in this process. It’s like a long distance hurdle event.
My acupuncturist told me a story yesterday about a woman who had something like 20 eggs collected on her first round of IVF and then THEY DROPPED THEM in the lab. OMFG, can you believe it?! Talk about bad luck. I feel like I need to go find some energy person to clear my juju when I hear those stories. BUT things are going alright here so far. We are moving along nicely so just need to hold onto that. But, you know, hurdles. They can come up at any point.
I’ll be back in the next couple of days after scan number 3.
