IVF update

After daily ultrasounds and bloodwork for three days, the reproductive endocrinologists, all two of them, that I could go on with the ovarian stimulation for my usual nine days. I made my last injection yesterday, which brought my estradiol levels to 4200 or so (it was 2600 at the same time during the previous two attempts!). This is really high and means that there's a risk of ovarian hyperstimulation, but for now I'm feeling good enough, tired and a little bloated but no spectacular swelling or abdominal ache. It also means that there's a good chance of getting more mature eggs at the retrieval *touches wood*.

I'm doing the trigger injection for the final eggs maturation this evening and the retrieval is scheduled for Friday morning. Then the potential embryos will get a five days in-vitro culture and if some of them withstand the process, the embryo transfer will be next Wednesday.

For the moment, that bathing in my hormones thing makes me strangely emotional and does stranger things to my music tastes. I've found Bette Midler's The Rose on Youtube, am listening to it on repeat and it makes me cry. Heh.
