Yesterday I was getting so nervous because I wasn't sure how the ultrasound would look & I think I was just feeling so anxious & nervous because the last time I had the 2nd ultrasound is also the time they did the HSG test & found out my fallopian tubes were blocked & it was just such a stressful & sad day. Anyways, yesterday afternoon & evening was the exact opposite. It feels so strange & wonderful to be hearing good news the past few visits after the past couple of years of sad news. Anyways, the nurse did the ultrasound & it showed that I have 3 follicles that are growing at a great rate. She said that everything looks perfect & that the amount & shot dosage I have been doing is good & to continue those shots.
The shots are Gonal F, 75 units, & I had them the 13th, 15th, 17th, and will do the last one on the 19th & then I will do the trigger shot on the 20th at 11:30 pm. I was thankful to know that we wouldn't need to be adding more shots, even though of course I would do them if needed. I am so scared of shots & so thankful that I have my husband & sisters to help give them to me. Even though I am still so scared of them, it has gotten to where I don't worry the entire day about the shot, just about the hour beforehand. Then after I am just so relieved that it is over & thankful that we have a chance of having a baby.
We will go on Tuesday, the 22nd at 10am & then at 11:30am to do the procedure. It was such great news to know that we have a good amount of follicles. It seemed perfect because I was so nervous that there would be none or that they would be too big or too small or that there would be a ton & then we would be worried about if it was dangerous.
Anyways, it was just such a relief that everything was looking so great. I felt a huge weight lifted of my shoulders. I was playing Christmas music on the drive back & two songs with Noel in them placed in a row. I was thinking, if we do get pregnant, we would find out in December (December 6th) & how sweet would it be if we had a girl to name them Lily Noel? Anyways, I don't want to get my hopes up too much but I am just feeling happy, excited, & hopeful about everything.
I called my husband when I was driving home from work & he had just gotten his first client for work! He has been really stressed about that, so it was great news for both of us!! We met at an Italian restaurant & had a happy celebratory dinner! What a great day!
