Stim Day 12 - Trigger Tonight! Woo Hoo!

So I woke up this morning and got out of bed and was thinking to myself, I don't feel my ovaries at all. So I went into the bathroom and weighed myself, 120 when I'm usually 123. I was like okay ovaries....I hope you're still in there working. The reason I was thinking this is with my first IVF cycle I only made it to 8 days of stimming my E2 was 5,500 when I triggered and I was miserable...I was bloated, I was cramping, I was throwing up, I had diarrhea, I had gained like 7 pounds in water weight and looked like I was about 3 months pregnant and to get up this morning and feel absolutely nothing made me think something wasn't right. So I was talking to my ultrasound tech telling her the stuff above and I was like so I hope they're still in there working and she was like yeah they are definitely working.

Lining: 13mm
Right: 17,17,16,15,14,13,12,12,11,11
Left: 18,17,16,15,15,15,14,12,12,11,11,10,10

Last cycle they retrieved 16 eggs, 10 were mature and 9 fertilized and this cycle they are measuring 23 and we shall know soon enough how many were mature and how many fertilized. I was just sitting here thinking how this cycle and my first cycle are like night and day.....crazy huh?

Update: I'm Cooked!


Trigger tonight at 9:00 p.m. Arrive at the surgery center at 7:30 a.m. on Friday morning for a 9:00 a.m. ER. My doctor is also starting me on 2mg Estrace vaginally the night of ER. She said their reason is because my E2 is high they are afraid that when they take the eggs my E2 will dive and start to break down the lining. So to prevent that they are adding estrogen to keep the lining nice and plump which she said I will stay on till 6 weeks pregnant. I start baby asprin and PIO on Saturday night as well.
