So tired of being tired!

You know some of the medication side effects I expected...the bloating, the bruising, the mood swings...but this I didn't expect. I am so FRICKING TIRED!  I crashed on the couch about 9 pm last night, after sleeping for nearly 9 hours the night before, and I am sitting here in the last 15 minutes of work (shhh don't tell) desperately trying to stay awake long enough to get home and crash out on the couch again.  Its a really good thing its Friday and other than my US appointment at 8 tomorrow and church on Sunday, I don't have anything I HAVE to do all weekend.  (OK maybe a little work since I'll be out most of next week, but that's not on a time table)

Oh Yea, since I crashed last night, I never updated with my results!  Here you go:
Follicles (Right): 12, 11, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9 (7 total over 7mm)
Follicles (Left): 13, 12, 11, 8, 8, 8, 7 (also 7 over 7mm)
E2: 252
Progesterone: 0.8
LH 0.5
Lining: I forgot to ask!

So things are looking good.  If everything at or over 10 keeps going, we'll have 8 eggs to harvest!  Dr. RE really wants 10, so those 8's and 9's better pick it up.  I go back for another date with Mr. Wandy (and hopefully Mr. Fab Tech) on Saturday. If the research I've done is right, we're looking at retrieval probably Wednesday or Thursday which means transfer Monday or Tuesday (if we make 5 days).  I'm totally nervous right now!  Less than a week away!


  1. Wow!!! Awesome follicle count! No wonder you're tired - your body is working hard!! Get lots of rest and drink lots of water this weekend! Can't wait for your next update!

  2. Wow that is wonderful news! Rest up this weekend and I can't wait to see what next week brings for you!

  3. Omg, the exhaustion is insane. It all seems really unreal right now. Your E2 is higher than mine...I don't even have follies over 10 yet, so we are apparently taking it slow. Hang in there. In my head I know what all of this is for, but I feel kind of removed from's weird...more updates tomorrow!
