IVF #1 - 9 Days of Meds - Ultrasound #4

Went in this morning for my blood work and ultrasound and got good news!

Lining: 10.6
Left: 18.3, 18.0, 17.9, 17.4, 17.1, 17.0, 16.5, 16.4, 16.1, 15.6, 15.2, 12.3, 12.0 (13 total)
Right: 20.6, 19.0, 18.8, 18.6, 15.0, 13.2, 12.0 (7 total)

Because there's one over 20mm, we are ready for the HCG trigger shot tonight & retrieval is scheduled for 10:15 Tuesday morning! My Estradiol level was over 4000 (lots of growing eggs in there)!!!

Jonathan flew out Saturday and gets to be here until Saturday. It is such an emotional and physical strength for me to have him here.

So Tueday is Big Day #1. As you remember us that morning, please pray for what'll go on. I should get a report the next day on how many fertilized. This could be a very good number or a very bad number - we do not know.... So just be aware the news is extremely uncertain at this point since we're "unexplained." You are all very appreciated and loved.

I will certainly be on "prayer watch" for you both on Tuesday!! Especially that whatever the news is, you and Jonathan will feel the deep love of God surrounding you completely.

Just wanted to let you know I "stumbled" onto your blog from Katie and Meghann's. This is Lindsay Gibson from Crossway. I didn't get a chance to know you for very long but it was neat to see your blog. I am praying for you and Jonathan. I know the desire to want children and not get them in your own timing. But I trust that God will meet your needs as you seek Him. I will pray for you in the morning:)

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow morning!
