My lining is measuring "7.5" in whatever they use to measure uterine lining. Our clinic's preference is "8" or higher but Nurse is not bothered. "8...7.5....it's splitting hairs. You're fine." She says. We're waiting for the results of my blood test and then she'll call to let me know if I should up my estrogen or leave well enough alone.
Meanwhile, donor is doing just great. She has 24 (24!!!) follicles all maturing nicely. If all goes well, she'll trigger over the weekend, retrieval will probably be Wednesday (Wednesday!!!) along with a visit to the spankatorium for hubby and a quick procedure to put in a stitch for me. If all goes well there, we are planning on a transfer next Saturday. Dizzy. Yes. I am a little dizzy.
While we were at the clinic, we asked Nurse for a quick refresher course on giving the PIO injections. Remember, it's been months since our first lesson and we've had no experience with the big needles as yet.
The first time we sat through this tutorial, I cried. This time, hubby had the tears in his eyes.
