There are still seven measurable follicles. From what I could tell, three or four of them are the desired size. Several others are too small to measure, and Dr. A said he wished they had chosen to "play along". So I left the office feeling discouraged and irritable. Discouraged because I sense that my body has not responded as well as the doctors would have liked it to. Irritable because of the steroid I'm taking. At least that's what I assume.
Yesterday I felt hopeful and optimistic. Today not so much. I know this is a long shot, but it's also my last shot. The significance of that is huge.
Anyway, I will trigger tonight with a shot of HCG. My sister is coming over to give that to me.
Tomorrow morning I return for a pre-op appointment and more blood work.
Egg retrieval is scheduled for Saturday morning.
