We’re Cleared for Takeoff!

I went to my final monitoring appointment this morning, and we’re officially ready to go. I have three dominant follicles on my left side (nice work, lefty!) at 22mm, 21mm and 18mm. My lining is over 10. My estradiol is 853. All this equals the trigger shot tonight at 11:15 pm. And an IUI tomorrow morning at 9:00, which includings dropping off of the Hubs cup at 8:00, and another one on Friday morning at 10:45, also with drop off at 8. I told my boss yesterday that I have some doctor’s stuff going on Thursday and Friday, and he looked at me oddly, but I didn’t give him a chance to ask questions – just quickly changed the subject. I think this is the key with talking with him – always be prepared with another topic…

I am so excited for this to get done. Can I fast forward a few weeks and find out now? I have my beta scheduled for May 13. I know I don’t have any sperm at all inside me, but I’d like to know if I’ll get pregnant. Isn’t that reasonable?

I’m trying to focus on my positive attitude – this will work, and I need to minimize the stress. I’m going to concentrate on being calm for the next few days. Step one: a long hot bath tonight, as this is the last time I’ll be able to take a hot bath for a very long time. Oh, and maybe I’ll pick up some sushi to eat tonight…


  1. Yea!! Great follies!

    Best of luck tomorrow and Friday and I hope you get some great news in a couple of weeks :-).

  2. If I had a crystal ball, I'd lend it to you! LOL!

    Good luck tomorrow! I'm so glad I'm self-employed. No need for any explanations.

  3. if your boss gets too nosy, try the "womenly issues" bit, in the hopes of making him EXTREMELY uncomfortable :o) heehee.

    glad you're good for takeoff! *fingers crossed* bigtime for you babes!

  4. You lucky duck with the 3 dominant follies...envious of you and hoping everything works out over the next couple of days. I have been lucky that I haven't had to explain to my boss, but she did ask me, "everything OK?" Wishing you a ton of luck.

  5. Awesome, awesome news! Enjoy the sushi - hope it's "off limits" for the next 9 months!
    The 2ww is really tough - we can help each other since we're in the same boat!

  6. Say you are having toe fungus looked at or a super infected toenail removed and offer to show them. This only works, of course, if you haven't been sporting the spring pedicure.

    Go! Tell that doctor to get your pregnant. I'm sending you all sorts of warm thoughts. Good luck tomorrow!

  7. Sending you so many positive thoughts!!!!

  8. Good luck with your IUIs! Hope this is the cycle!
