Still Still On!!

It looks like retrieval is going to be on Thursday.  

!!!!

The donor has between 25 and 30 mature follicles.  She's coming back in tomorrow and I think they will trigger whenever it is so that retrieval will be on Thursday.  I am actually quite relieved because we're flying out on Tuesday and I would rather have a day of wiggle room in case there are problems with the flight.  And please don't let me have just cursed the flight by blogging that.

I also learned that they have a pretty standard protocol that is what Beer's recommends and that my real struggle (?) is going to be getting my regular OB to follow Beer's protocol should I be fortunate to get pregnant.  My OB is pretty progressive, so I'm thinking that will work out, too.

In any case, we're packing up the pharmacy and a few clothes and heading out tomorrow.  I'm hoping the hotel has internet so I can check in and let folks know the status.  I still am not convinced this is going to happen.  We'll see.  And we'll definitely hope!!

Everything sounds great! I know when it is your cycle it's hard not to feel like you will be getting bad news in the next update, but I think this cycle is going to turn out beautifully!
