I'm breathing out.
My LH today came in at 1.3, P4 <0.2 and E2 up to 329.
I told them the first E2 didn't really count--funny thing, my regular nurse today said the same thing. I'm just glad the E2 went up a decent amount but isn't, um, say, 2500 like last time.
They counted fourteen follicles and said a few more could pop up soon too. I really don't need super high numbers, just a good fertilization rate and some quality eggs. Duh.
I'm enjoying myself. I'm not as lonely. With all the 'stuff' that's been going on with my family and my life of late this is the first time in a long time that I'm just relaxing (minus the inherent stress of IVF out of state). Like, today after monitoring the shuttle driver took me to my Mecca, aka SuperTarget, and I wandered around for an hour, picked up some groceries for my uber healthy high protein stimulation diet, and then when I got back to the hotel I put my PJs back on and have basically lazed around all day.
Aaaaaahhhh, the good life.
Mr. LastChance and I have been calling this a "small vacation with a remote possibility of getting an embryo or two." It's a way to keep ourselves sane.
I'm about to go to the gym and get a little exercise and then I'll be stuck in the room again tonight, but it's not so bad. I could write. I can read blogs. I can watch bad TV while snacking on bell peppers and hummus and drinking whey protein drinks.
At least for now, things are ok.
