A Great Weekend
I had a really great weekend. We normally go out with friends on Friday nights, but since we had to get up early to drive down to my monitoring appointment on Saturday, we decided to make dinner at home and watch a movie. We watched Inception... it was kind of hard to follow, but I really liked it!
Saturday morning, I got up bright and early to go to my CD 12 monitoring appointment at my RE’s main office (which is about 1 ½ hours away). While I was in the shower, I prayed for 2 growing follicles. I even prayed that if I couldn’t have two, please, PLEASE let me have just one big follie.
My wish came true. My favorite ovary (Lefty!) produced a 20 mm follicle… on CD 12! I didn’t have any others over 10 mm but that was fine with me. I was so happy with my beautiful follicle and that I had responded so early. I was so afraid that I was going to go through a cycle similar to last month.
So anyway… a nurse called me later that day with my blood work results and instructed me to go ahead and trigger that night! :) So we packed up my Ovidrel and went over to a friend’s house for the Packers vs. Falcons game. Mark and I later snuck into a bathroom and he shot me full of HCG… it was really weird but I don’t think anyone noticed we were gone. We had a great night and most importantly, the Packers won! They are going to be in the NFC championship game! Now if only my cutie Peyton Manning and the Colts could have made it to the AFC championship… I would have LOVED a Packers/Colts super bowl! Maybe next year… :)
So after a very “BUSY” Saturday night and Sunday… I guess my two week wait officially begins today. I started on a few projects at home to try and keep me occupied this time. We will see how well it works! Let the fun begin!
