IVF CD7: Getting close and I want a nap

Hello everyone.

Exhausted tonight...

I'm kind of tired tonight, so I'm not planning a long post.  Just some of the basics.  This morning's appointment was at 7AM.  I had 14 measurable follicles this morning. Right side:  10.0, 13.9, 16.3, 10.9, 9.8, 10.4, and 14.5. Left side is 12.9, 13.8, 15.2, 12.8, 10.4, 10.7, and 12.3.

The sonographer stated she wouldn't be surprised if we trigger this weekend for a retrieval on Monday or Tuesday.  We'll see.  I'm a bit nervous, but I just have faith that everything is going to work out however it is supposed to.

I have been getting a bit more uncomfortable.  Not terribly, but if I sit for a while my back hurts and I find myself feeling cramping.  It has been hitting pretty consistently about 2 PM and 5PM respectively.  So has the desire to sleep.

Want to know what else hits?  The friskiness.  I would LOVE to baby dance with S., but I am way too sore and bloated to even think about it, plus it would have to be protected so we don't risk ruining the IVF.  No need to risk that.

In other news, I need a nap desperately.  Between all day meetings and early morning blood draws, I'm looking forward to some downtime to sleep just for a little while.

Here's today's breakdown.  I'll keep you posted and check in with you later.
