Monitoring appointment today went fine. Things are progressing as they should. I have 8 to 10 good sized follicles right now and a good amount of smaller ones. Still pretty early to get an idea of what sorts of numbers we will have at retrieval but I always like hearing how they are doing. My lining was in the 9ish range (can't remember the exact number). My E2 after 7 days of stims was 1014 and since I missed posting about it on Saturday, my E2 after 5 days was 379. My follistim dosage has been decreased from 300iu to 250iu for tonight and tomorrow. Next monitoring appointment is on Wednesday.
I think they are working towards a Sunday retrieval. Uhm... really? Superbowl Sunday? Lolz. Besides the fact that I host a Superbowl party at our house every year (this year being no exception)... I think it sounds sorta lucky to have our retrieval on that day. Hopefully this is our cycle and it will be a story for our little one, one day. :)
Outside of infertility land... this weekend was so beautiful. I just love Southern California. 80 degrees all weekend. Since we were out and about early on Saturday for my monitoring appointment... we decided to be spontaneous and visit the nearby beach. It. Was. So. Beautiful. I loved it. We just sat there... letting the sun fall on us, listening to the ocean and relaxing. Really relaxing. I felt at peace. This is exactly what I needed for this cycle. I am ready for what the next two weeks may bring. We both enjoyed our impromptu beach day so much... we went back for a few hours on Sunday also.
