I lost count during our ultrasound. I have an abundance of follicles. There is so much debate in the online community regarding quality versus quantity of follicles so I am hoping that I can have both... yes quantity and quality. Selfish maybe... but at this point I do not care.
My estrogen is still soaring and for this reason I have been put on Dosinex to ward off ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)... well this combined with the other factors that put me at high risk for OHSS... that being that I am relatively young and thin...apparently OHSS likes this. Here's hoping the Dosinex does the trick and this is the last I hear of OHSS.
I am trying to not think about the retrieval. I mean the general idea of having an ultrasound probe rigged up with a giant needle is honestly quite horrifying but the reality is that it must be done... it might not be fun...but once it is over we will be one step closer to our hopeful Christmas present.
With the retrieval set for Wednesday we are assured that we will have our doctor perform the procedure. I also caved and purchased some Emla cream today which I will disperse on both hands, arms and hips to hopefully cover the IV and the anti anxiety shots that I will receive on Wednesday. Bring on the drug cocktail!
Things are moving...time to get cautiously excited!
