Triggering tonight - retrieval Wednesday!

Sorry for not updating more, it's just been a bunch of ultrasounds and bloodwork.  I took my last stims last night and went in this morning for a final ultrasound.  I have about 15-17 good follies (mostly all on my right ovary!) and will trigger tonight at 10PM.  The retrieval will be Wednesday morning at 9:30 AM.  I imagine the transfer will be Saturday, Sunday or Monday, depending on how the embies do.  I've done well as far as side effects go, but as of this evening I'm starting to feel somewhat uncomfortable.  I can feel a lot of cramping and pressure in my ovaries and lower back.  I was told to be very careful with my physical activity due to the large number of follies - I guess they're worried about torsion or OHSS.  I'll check in Wednesday after the retrieval!


  1. good luck! i will have everything crossed for you that you collect some big, fat, beautiful mature eggs!

  2. Yipee! Good luck at the transfer! Enjoy the Valium.

  3. Good luck! Hoping all goes super smoothly for your retrieval!
