    Those are excellent follies!!!!! I am totally stalking you and coming on here just to check up. The year really has flown by, it's unbelievable.

    That stinks about the bruising and not being able to lay on your belly. I got really bad bruising from the injects too, it was awful so I can definitely relate.

    Sending tons and tons of baby dust your way!!!!

    I do seem to have encountered an odd 'IVF at the beach' conundrum...my bruised and swollen belly makes it uncomfortable to lay on my stomach - which means that I have a very tan front-side and a not-so-tan backside! Ack!
    !! Oh sheesh! Sorry about that...going to blame it on the flu I've had the last few days !

    Sooo...praying for a perfect ER tomorrow (I have it right this time...right? )

    Thanks everyone!

    Had another u/s today, all of the 12's are catching up to the 18's...so we're going to stim one more night, trigger tomorrow night at 8pm, ER Friday at 0800. E2 today was 2800, which I am very happy about! Since I don't have a ton of follicles, I'm interpreting it to mean that the ones that I have are maturing well and are good quality...does that sound about right? Hi, my name is Erica, and I am an IVF rookie (but I research way too much!). I also had a great acupuncture appointment today, and will have acupuncture right before and right after transfer.

    So, please muster any spare you might have around, cause we're going to need all we can get!

    I think my RE said the E2 is 300 for each mature follie....so that would mean right now you have about 9 follies that are producing E2 plus a few others that are smaller and producing some. I *think* I am remembering correctly but could be off, my brain is severely sleep deprived.

    I really like acu and thought that even if it didn't benefit our fertility treatments, it did benefit me mentally and physically. I thought it was incredibly relaxing and even fell asleep during it!

    Lots of baby dust and good thoughts!!

    Things are looking good! No new scans or anything, triggered last night at 8pm, go to the clinic at 730am tomorrow. Hopefully all of this work will pay off! Thanks for the info on the E2, that's pretty much what I was thinking. for tomorrow and good updates all weekend!

    Thanks everyone! ER went well, I love the staff at this clinic. I slept through the whole thing, and for a few hours after. They retrieved 6 eggs, now we just need to send them lots of good baby making vibes! I'll get a call from the clinic every morning with the update...this is going to be a looooooong few days!

    Thanks everyone! I'll try to post with the fert report tomorrow. I'm not feeling too bad, so DH and I went out to a nice dinner-I was able to send a few text messages out to friends and family, saying that DH and I had a babysitter for the weekend! Hopefully the 'kids' are being good for the embryologist!

    Seriously, thank you so much for all of your support. This has been absolute torture, and I would be such a mess without you wonderful ladies!

    We have 3 naturally fertilized eggs as of 0800 this morning. I am a little disappointed, starting with 6 eggs, but we knew that quality would be an issue going into this, and I never expected to have any left over to freeze, so I'm thinking that 3 is perfect! We'll get a development report again at 8am tomorrow.

    This is going to be a looooooong weekend. At least we have a snorkeling trip with turtles and shipwrecks tomorrow for a distraction...
