Had my lining check this morning, and things are looking great. Lining already at 9mm, so we’ve crossed into the safe zone from my end. Whew, one hurdle down.
And, yes. The nice nurses at my local clinic had an update on the donor when I arrived. She is responding well to stims and as of Stim Day 4, they are tracking 12 leaders (all around the same size of 10/11 for those interested), and a host of smaller ones that might still have time to catch up. Her bloodwork looks great.
Initially, I was kind of bummed to hear only twelve?? (I am a member on a DE board where donors are frequently are pumping out 20-30) but I have to remember that it’s quality, not quantity…. right? I keep reminding myself that this a 26 year old with proven fertility.
(just more stuff to obsess about now!)
At this point, it’s a safe bet that retrieval won’t be over the weekend, but probably early next week. In the meantime, I’ll be chewing my fingernails!
And, thinking positive.
I have a new mantra today… This WILL work. I repeated it in my head about a hundred times lying in bed last night. Universe are you listening???
