Triggered.....

E2 shot up again to 7644. (((sigh)))

Lining: 10.5

Left: 23, 22, 21, 19, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 15, 14, 12, 12, 11

Right: 23, 23, 21, 21, 20, 20, 18, 18, 16, 15, 15, 14, 13, 12

Trigger tonight at 9:30 p.m. for a Friday retrieval at 9:30 a.m.

I had protein IV's for my last IVF. I got two at transfer. But he said he wants to do them at retrieval as well as transfer. And the other meds he said pick up have been in some studies to help fight off OHSS. Wants me to start them tomorrow and take them for 8 days I was feeling pretty awful earlier. I was burping the vitamin taste of the vitamins I had taken earlier and I just felt off. Then I threw up...a lot....waited like an hour or two and took a protein shot...26g of protein. Starting to feel a little better now...even though I haven't been able to eat my double cheese burger I picked up from Wendy's (30g of protein) yet.

I did my trigger already....hesitated for a while but then figured OHSS or not these follies have to come out of me. No way am I going to just ovulate 20+ follies out on my own. My one and only IUI I thought I was going to die when I started to ovulate....worse pain I've ever felt in my life and it was only 6 mature then! So we'll see how it go after this and if push comes to shove I'll freeze if I have to. Safety first....

On another note:

I answered some of the comments about paying out of pocket in the comment section of the last post.

Some asked if I've had a high E2 before...the answer is yes. My very first IVF my E2 was 5,573 at trigger...threw up a few times (before & after trigger) and that was about it. My last IVF my E2 was 5,526 at trigger...threw up a few times (after transfer) and that was about it. Mind you it wasn't 7,000 but we shall see....

I am so excited for you. Take care of yourself. I hope you are feeling better and that cheeseburger wasn't thrown away(wink)

I know what you mean about ovulation pain. Because I dont ovulate on my own, I was surprised. Of course, ovulating multiples hurts worse. I didnt even notice it much on my single ovulations.

Sending you big, BIG prayers and lots of luck!!!

It will be such a relief to get all of those eggs out! Best of luck tomorrow and I hope your body continues to fight the ohss as well as it has in the past.
