Dr's Appointment

I had a doctor's appointment this morning. My ultrasound showed 10 follicles ranging from 8-14. I was expecting them to be a little bigger but my doctor said that was okay. My estrogen level was 520. I go back on Sunday for another checkup to see when I'm going to take the HCG shot and schedule retrieval. This is wearing me out!!! When I got to school I felt so EXHAUSTED:) I'm so glad it's Friday and I can sleep late tomorrow and not have to rush to get to the doctor. When I got home I took an hour nap and it felt so good. Brandon has drill this weekend so he left at 5:30. My brother came home for a week so I went to meet him and my parents for dinner. He lives in Memphis because he is going to optometry school there. He just finished and now has to complete his internships. He passed his boards so I'm soooo proud of him!! In a few months I will have a brother that is a doctor;) Since I was at my parents when it was time to do my shot, my brother wanted to mix it and give it to me. He did a great job. It hurt even less than when I do it myself. I wish he was here everyday!! Well I'm going take a bath and relax. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

You're getting closer! I remember being soooo tired with everything. It really takes a toll on ya, doesn't it? But it will be worth it!!

Hope you were able to sleep in this morning!!

This is the exciting part, I think...watching those follies grow! :-) Hope tomorrow's scan goes well.

Sounds like your follicles are coming along nicely. It's better to grow them slowly.

You are brave to let your brother mix your injections. I couldn't even let my DH do them. I needed that control. :)
