we converged…

it was one stop shopping for us today…

– we arrived and i went upstairs while dakota put car in lot
– i checked in so i could get blood and u/s done before dakota went in for retrieval
– dakota got very delayed by the evil elevators being out (stressed my poor sweetie)
– dakota arrived and went in with me while i had blood drawn (they got it on the first stick!)
– we sat and waited for her to be called in for retrieval and for me to be called for u/s
– they called me for u/s and her for retrieval – off to separate adventures 🙂
– retrieval went great – 7 eggs harvested – drugs worked wonders
– i told doc that my monitor said 3 bars and i thought it might be time for insemination so doc wiped the lube off the stick so it would not interfere should we be ready and the u/s showed that i have a big huge follicle ready to go, doctor laughed and said, hey let’s see if i can pop it, he couldn’t…
– he confirmed my donor number and called the recovery to see if dakota was done and sent me back to see her while they processed my sperm
– i sat with a groggy dakota while we waited for my IUI to be ready to go and then they called me
– IUI, no pain, doc was friendly and quick
– dakota came into the exam room while i was waiting the 15 minutes and gave me pets and love
– we walked off into the fertility sunset (after shelling out 500 for anesthesia and 700 for embryo freezing that the insurance won’t cover)
– we await word on tuesday how many eggs fertilized, wednesday or thursday the quality of the embryos and then on monday the 29th we will have completed the 2ww and we find out if we are pregnant. all in all a good day!
