Day 11 of IVF/ICSI Cycle

OK, I'm pissed at BlogLines. It seems I have been missing some new posts and feel like a putz for not being there for some of my peeps. It looks like I'll have to resort to just pulling up each one on my favorite's list to make sure I'm in the know...

Also, it appears that since I got pregnant with Max in 2001, I have gotten ugly. How else could I account for our infertility woes? This article is about as pointless and stupid as saying that the bigger a guy's dick is, the more sperm they have. I'd like to see a composite picture of that research...uh, then again...maybe not. Ick.

Quick update: Left ovary - 19, 19, 17, 16, 15. Right - 19, 13, 10. Probably only 4 mature eggs. Right at the cut-off for IVF with my clinic.

Estrogen: 1436 (woohoo!)

Uterine Lining: 14.2. Sounds a little thick but Dr. M., who I have now finally nicknamed Dr. Rapidblinker, is very happy with that.

Tonite: Continue the repronex and antagon.

Friday Nite: Trigger at 10:45 p.m., which is waa-aa-a-y past my bedtime.

Saturday: Relax. bwwaahahahahaha! and no food or drink after midnite.

Sunday: Be at the hospital at 7:45 am, but first stop by clinic to pay all associated retrieval and transfer fees with one very pathetic check of $5500 (sorry family/friends, no more money for holiday gifts!). The aspiration is scheduled for 8:45 am. Jerry will need to be available for his own brand of "payment" within the hour. Start the PIO that nite.

Monday: Info on eggs retrieved and fertilization status to be forthcoming from the clinic.

Tuesday: Relax (again, more manic laughing).

Wednesday: Transfer!

When you put it that way, you have to wonder what the big fucking deal is, right?

Right, no biggie. No big deal. Not at all. No sir.

It's HUGE! I'm going to be thinking successful thoughts on your behalf all weekend.

yeah, sounds like a walk in the park. What's the prob??

No, perhaps since Max, you just haven't had the time to apply your makeup. I know I used to look better Pre-Maggie. These days, I bear a strong resemblance to Uncle Fester...

You will be in my thoughts & prayers this weekend.

That's quite the pillow you're growing there. Hope it gets put to good use. Good luck next week.

Cricket, woman. What am I going to do with you. Do you know I had to read your comment 3x before it sunk what the heck you were talking about? LOL

For anyone else who may be as hormonally dense as I seem to be right now: pillow = uterine lining.

BTW. I am the one who posted a comment then deleted it. No one out there is stalking...

If it's no big deal, then why am I so excited for you?!?
I have been having the same exact problem with Bloglines--they say they are fixing it.
Good luck my dear!
