First, sorry for the late post. It's been a helluva couple of days that I won't go into here.

So, I went in today to get my lining checked as it was day 8 of the estrace. It was measured at 10. Pretty good as I understand. Perfect according to my doctor. :)

I then met with the nurse. She said that retrieval is on for November 7th and transfer will be November 10th. I asked if she could tell me how many follicles the donor had at her last appointment. She said she didn't know off hand but thought it was about 15-16 follicles. She said there could be more because they don't always measure them all, and we'd obviously know on Wednesday at retrieval.

So V. and I are now taking doxycyline for three days. I'm to go in with V. on Wednesday so that can show me/us how to do the progesterone in oil (PIO) shots which begin that day as well. I have to admit, I'm not looking forward to that aspect of all of this, especially because I'm travelling for work just at the tail end of the two week wait. I'll have to take a look online for some tips and tricks with the PIO injections.

Anyway, that's all for now.

Yeah! Progress! Does it bug you that the nurse doesn't know how many follies the donor has? You would think that would be some information that she would assume you would ask her. I don't have to do PIO injections, but I am sure you will get lots of advice. I heard that ice really helps.

I am very excited for you. I can't wait to hear how the next few days unfold.

Good luck with everything this week. My blog doesn't go into details because we've got a couple of RL lurkers and we are in the "don't tell" camp, but I'm going to be going through a DE cycle in December as well. I wish you all the best.

YAY! I am still doing the happy dance around here from your text message Monday. :)

Good luck today!

I have no doubts that you'll do just fine with the shots. It's amazing what we'll put ourselves through to get those babies, huh?

I'm here if you need me. Anytime.
