Moving Forward

Yesterday I went in for a Day 10 ultrasound and blood draw. The follicles had grown since Wednesday and there were a few more that popped up on my left ovary (my ovary that tends to have less follicles overall). This time they didn’t show me the list of how many and their sizes, but I think 10-12 were of good measurable size.

We triggered last night, Hubby always does a good job giving me the hCG intramuscular shot and my pregnancy test was positive this morning. We will check in tomorrow at 8 AM for our egg retrieval surgery. Last time I was very lucky to have my regular RE do both my egg retrieval surgery and embryo transfer, this time I don’t know what RE will be performing my surgery. We are lucky that it landed on a Sunday, so both Hubby and I don’t have to worry about our work schedules. Tomorrow will be a lazy day at home, taking it easy and resting.

I’m still continuing on with my neutral mindset and so far it’s been less stressful to think this way. Last time around the toughest part was the wait between embryo transfer and beta. I’m hoping to stick with my easy going mindset and hoping to be pleasantly surprised this time around.

Tonight we are going over to a friends place for a BBQ and to watch some college football. It will be a pleasant evening before tomorrow.

Have a great Saturday!!!
