teetering on the edge

day 22: october 10, 2007
meds: lupron, 5 units; follistim, 75 iu in morning, ovidrel trigger shot at night; prenatal vitamin
side effects: ovary pains, bloating, tired
mood: all over the place

i’m back from my morning ultrasound. there are 26 follies in there now and i am so uncomfortable. i’m right on the cusp for whether to trigger. if it was up to me, i’d do it just to get some relief, but my blood results are going to be the determining factor. i have my fingers crossed and will keep you posted.

**UPDATE**
my e2 levels went up to 4,115 so they want me to do the trigger tonight! surgery will be at 8:30 am on friday morning. because my levels went above 3,000 i’ll be having some sort of special iv—hetastarch—at the time of my retrieval to help prevent hyperstimulation. i’m feeling very ready. trigger tonight, no more lupron, no more follistim, no more blood stuff and no more ultrasounds!! holy cow!
