Just hook it to my vein!
Yesterday they took blood to check my estrogen levels. They called later that day and said things are moving right along and they wanted to take more blood today. So I went in today and they did an intra-vaginal ultrasound too. My eggs are around 15mm (they need to be between 18-22mm before insemination) to me the ultrasound looked like about 6 of my eggs are developing this cycle, hopefully just one or two will be at the right size when they inseminate (I'm not quite sure what I would do with 6 babies!) Once my eggs are the right size, we have opted for IUI (Intra-Uterine Insemination) as opposed to IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) because it is much cheaper and a lot less invasive for me. I have another appointment on Wed and depending on the size of my eggs I might get the HCG shot and be inseminated before this coming Monday! I am really excited, say a prayer for us!
