Day 9

Today pretty much stunk. It didn't really go as planned ... but all is well. Estradiol was 1535.

Our ultrasound was early this morning. After driving about 3 hours to get there, and waiting for 50 minutes to see the doctor, we learned that my follicles really aren't as big as measured here in town. More around the 9-14mm range. =(

So we are back to waiting. Which the doctor said was fine - we are on track. He also said he thought something might be up because my numbers that were coming back from the technician here in town were so high, so quickly.

I'm still doing fine, but I have one more ultrasound on Wednesday. I was really hoping today would be it. I am so tired of getting shots. And I'm tired of being bloated. And last night my left ovary was hurting for about 6 hours. And it also means another $250+gas+time+aggravation.

According to the doc, our plan is to do the final ultrasound on Wednesday and the egg retrieval on Friday. This works absolutely great for our work/school schedule. Except for the fact that I will be driving back by myself on Wednesday because Tom will be in class.

Which brings me to the point where I'd like to explain that I am such a crybaby when it comes to driving these days. Thomas has completely spoiled me and always drives any of our long trips, to the point that I just dread and hate driving. And with that in mind - we will be making 3 more trips to Jacksonville over the next week. Uggh.
