Before I get to my IF news for the day, I just wanted to update everyone that hasn't heard that Amy's husband Matt passed away early Saturday morning. I haven't talked to Amy. I can't imagine what she is going through. I don't think anyone expects to have to make funeral arrangments for their 30 year old husband. I'm just glad that Mattie is here, and named after her daddy. And from the pics I've seen of Matt, Mattie looks just like him:-) THanks for all the good thoughts and prayers that have been sent to their family over the past several months.
His death really puts things in perspective. It makes my IF problems seem not so important, and I think that's a really good thing right now...when I happen to be in the heart of my obsessing.
I had my first u/s today. They saw 15 follicles!! So right now, I'm about equal to where I was for ER with IVF #1, but I'm still stimming at least one more day. My E2 was 880. I go back tomorrow for more b/w and another date with the dildo-cam. My Ovidrel (trigger shot) and PIO got delivered this morning. Oh how I love those 5 inch needles. OK, so they probably aren't 5 inches, but they are LONG.
I called the blood drawing lady a vampire on Saturday (meant in the most affectionate manner, of course). Today, the vein she normally uses was a no-go, I've been poked too many times and have built up some scar tissue. She used the other arm, so now I have matching bruises.
