Dr's Appointment/Tentative Egg Retrieval

I had a doctor's appointment this morning at 8:00. It was sooo hard for me to wake up at 6:15 on a Sunday!! I had my ultrasound and my follicles were measuring around 17. My RE told me that I would probably take 2 more days of stims and go back Tuesday for another ultrasound and have egg retrieval on Thursday. I was suppose to have it on Tuesday but my little follies are taking longer to grow;) When I called to get my Estrogen level it was 1083 so they told me to come back in tomorrow morning for another ultrasound and estrogen check and my retrieval would probably be on Wednesday!! It keeps changing. No matter what my transfer won't be on Mother's Day since it has been pushed back. I was a little upset because I thought that was such a good sign...but I shouldn't worry about signs because after every IUI I thought it would be the perfect time and it didn't work so I'm leaving it in God's hands!! He knows the best time!! I hope that we have enough to freeze so that if it doesn't work we will be able to do a FET cycle. Please say some prayers!!
Yesterday I went to one of my best friends baby showers. There was a girl there that did IVF and is now carrying triplets. They put back 2 embryos and 1 split. There was also a girl there pregnant with twins...i'm not sure if she went through infertility or not. It was reassuring though!
Today after my appointment I went to my parents and ate breakfast. Then we went to church, came home, ate lunch, took naps;), ate cheesecake, and relaxed. Now I'm at home and I'm going spend some time with Brandon. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!

Everything's going perfectly, just taking a little bit longer for those eggs to grow. ;)

I hope that it goes well for you--you are so so right about God's timing. We prayed for a baby for years and our oldest came at the perfect time. It couldn't have worked out better.
