I had another u/s and b/w appointment at CCRM this morning. Still looking good. They measured about 17 follices, with the first 12 being between 13-17mm, and the addditional 5 being between 8-12. Then there were about 6 more little ones that she didn't measure. So, they are confident saying we should get 12 but may get up to 20. This is basically the same as last time. We thought we'd get 14 and got 19, so I'm going to guess more than 12 but not by too much more. I'm just hoping for quality over quantity!
They are still estimating Wednesday the earliest for ER with it more likely being Thursday or Friday, but the nurse said she'll know more after the b/w gets run and they talk to the doctor. This would be good news b/c Brett isn't going to get here until really late Tuesday night. I did call the nurse that they list in the binder who is willing to come to the hotel and do shots for us. She was super-sweet and is absolutely willing to come out here at any time and give me the IM trigger shot. I've been trying to pump myself up to try to give it to myself, but haven't got the courage. I just don't get the logistics of shooting myself in the tush (I think the hardest part would be the pull out to check for blood part, how do you do that? And someone told me you can skip that part, but I've had DH hit a vein with the PIO, so I really don't want to skip it, you know?). Anyway, problem solved. (Kay- thanks for offering, btw. I just think I'll be doing the shot before you even get here!).
I'm just trying to stay busy. I am usually okay by myself but don't like sightseeing, etc, alone. So, Friday I went shopping (bad bad me...we've been saving money and I haven't shopped at all since before Christmas, haven't even cut or colored my hair!). So, it was bad of me but DSW had a huge sale here (TONS at 50% off)...so I bought shoes. Yesterday I went to a GREAT yoga class here. This is the second studio I've sampled in the area in the last year...and this one was MUCH better. The one I went to in October was seriously McYoga...very pre-packaged and lacking. Yesterday's class was Anusara and was incredible. Then I went to a matinee to see a chic-flick, which I never do. It was fun....went to see He's Just not that Into You. It was okay. I get annoyed at the stereotypical male and female roles and jokes (which I never remember until I am already paid and watching the movie). I may try to make it to a matinee of Slumdog Millionaire today. I am not a huge movie fan...probably only see 2 or so a year in the theater, so this is an interesting change for me.
Oh and for all of you with MF concerns, I read an article while at CCRM in Women's Health that said that if your man eats lots of soy or soy-based foods, his sperm count is likely 47million less than a guy who eats none. That is HUGE. It was 47 million on average, so more or less. I think it was a Swiss study...not sure, but worth looking into if your guy likes veggie burgers or tofu.
