Labs are back and I did my shot right! Really right…my hCG was 4 times what we hope for, haha! And my E2 is still going up :) Sigh of relief. So all is well :) This morning I came in and voiced my woes from the early morning and one of the nurses said, oh yes I expected this from you, haha. She said, yes of course you worry you did it wrong, reading the medication box and second guessing us, our patients usually just listen to instructions and follow them…well whatever, I will be “that” patient. Typical. My Doc asked me, why didn’t you call me when you were worried you weren’t doing it right? Told her I knew it would be ok, just had a little freak out and I didn’t want to wake her up at 12:30am!
And because I am the type of person to try and make light of any situation, take the pressure off and remember all will be well, I started a pool to bet how many eggs my coworkers think I will make. $1 gets you in and we’re betting on how many eggs and how many mature. My doc thinks it might make me more disappointed if I don’t get as many as all of us hoped for, but I think it’s helping me be calm and relaxed about it and remember that it is out of my hands and really all I can do is bet on it, can’t change what will be and that’s ok. I am betting for 13 mature eggs, but in all honesty I will be delighted to have 5 eggs mature and frozen, it’s more than I have now and it’s enough to go through one cycle, possibly two…so that is just fine with me :)
Nervously excited for tomorrow :) I personally set up my dishes and picked which incubator I want them to be in. All of our incubators are named after fertility goddesses, btw. ;) All set and ready and awaiting my little eggies!
