Why has that quote been buzzing around in my head all day? Oh, ya.. because I have ovaries the size of oranges! And they're kindof achy.
Yes, my friends, it is trigger time! Mr. Foxy came home from work 5 minutes before it was time for my 8:20 PM shot. I was prepared to freak out at 8:30, so there's a disaster averted. Egg retrieval is Saturday, early in the morn'. I am all hopped up on estrogen - my E2 went from 1820 yesterday to a dazzling 3172 today. My highest ever! It's not high enough for anyone to panic, but they did schedule me 1st in line for egg retrieval Saturday. They call me "party ovaries".
Specifically, we may be looking at 15-20 mature eggs. Given my age there will be a fair percentage of duds and non-fertilizers, but that's why my RE wanted to push for more.
Will post an update Saturday. For now I'm very excited and pretty darned optimistic!
In other news.. the prospective part-time nanny came over today and Waffle Girl is in love! I am too. I knew she was a musician in the Old Country who is mostly cleaning houses here and has her own little girl. I was happy to learn that she runs a weekend preschool group (lots of toddler experience!) and directs the church choir, too. She will surely teach my girl to be a brilliant performer before kindergarten. Yay! I'm super happy about this.
