Don't Really Need A Basket, But....

...we are going looking for eggs on Saturday. Tonight I will trigger (and hope not to do more nerve damage!) and the retrieval will be Saturday sometime. Not sure when, as I'm waiting to hear, but got a call from Dr. K about the way things are looking.

My estrogen has been better..1495 yesterday and 1837 today. I have several follicles but the
problem  is that those 4 bigger ones from the beginning are still that way and there is a decent enough discrepancy between them and the several smaller ones that we don't want to take the chance of me ovulating and losing them all in the name of waiting and hoping the others catch up some.  They still can, and we are hoping for 6-8 eggs. I have icky, icky fertilization rates, so if that's the case, then it could be chancy for what we can actually transfer, much as I hate to say it because I hate hearing it, it really does only take one.

So that said, we appreciate your prayers for a big week...retrieval, transfer, John traveling a lot and just anxiety in general.  It's pretty weird....I'm very anxious about a lot of stuff.

But, feel good about things. Mainly because I know I control not a single one and worrying won't make a difference but to make me sick.

Besides, how can I not feel good when my sweet boy wakes me up at 5:15 am humming the tune to the BeeGees "Stayin' Alive," ???  That boy is pure bliss.


  1. Hoping those eggies are quality and therefore help give you a much better fertilization rate, and then give you...... Xxxxxx

  2. Best of luck retriving those eggs, buns, peas, and anything else that's been known to come out of a woman's ovaries before. :)

    Seriously. I'm wishing, and hoping, and praying......and actually have 'Staying Alive' stuck in my head now!

  3. I'll be praying for you, that's a lot to have going on. And I'm hoping that all goes well.

  4. Whoo hoo! Praying for a super cycle that yields a pregnant Lori who can't ride roller coasters at Disney!

  5. So, the last 2 nights I've had a dream about you. Well, actually you've been the focal point ... and last night, you, me and someone I didn't know (but was super wonderful, whoever she was) were with you at the appointment right before the transfer (yeah right!). The Docter was so pleased with the eggs that he put their pictures on these GIGANTIC poster boards and had several nurses carry them in, like The Price is Right, and wave them around. Ha ha! We all started cying and praying together, right there. The eggs really were beautiful too! I can only be full of hope for what's to come and just praise Him for always being right there. It truly was special to "meet" you in my dream and to feel like God really is so happy to have all of these people, all over, praying for you guys and lifting you up. Lets go Ennis babies!! xoxo

  6. Hello from ICLW! Sending all the wishes in the world for a successful cycle! Best of luck to you!!
