A Reprieve

I'm triggering at midnight for an egg retrieval on Friday.  I still have 2 follies but my E2 went up to 400 today so my RE decided to go for it.   I had been preparing myself all day to hear that the cycle was canceled.  DH and I decided to try to forget about it and just go for a drive in his jeep with the top down.   The sun is shining and it's unusually warm for spring in New England.  We ended up at a local farm stand and were picking out vegetables to grill tonight for dinner when the call came.  When I answered and it was the nurse, I thought, "Damn, my RE is a big jerk for not calling me himself to tell me he's canceling my final cycle."  Then she told me she had instructions for me and I was in disbelief.  I'm more relieved than excited.  I'm trying really hard to take it one step at a time.  Nothing is guaranteed, but today's results sure are better than the alternative.

I am so glad you are moving forward!! One more victory to celebrate. Praying that those are your best 2 follicles ever.

Glad you had a great day with DH too. Sounds wonderful.

I leaped here from the Lushary. I'm sending you the best of all possible wishes for this ER.

Hope those grilled veggies were tasty, too.

Just wanted to wish you the best of luck on your retrieval. Mine was almost cancelled last minute, but we were able to do it and we're now 7 weeks pregnant. I'm hoping your cycle does the same!
