Thank you to everyone who has offered me encouragement and kind words. It means the world to me!!! I'm triggering tonight and will have the retrieval at 10:15 Wednesday morning. () I had freakout #2 when the nurse called a little while ago and said my E2 was >5000! (5315 to be exact). I asked if I could talk to my RE for a little reassurance and she called me back right away. She said that they are going to do everything they can to keep me from over stimulating. I'm supposed to start the OHSS diet now...lots of salt, protein, and g.atorade. They will be giving me something called H.etastarch in my IV on Wednesday. It's a protein liquid that supposedly helps with OHSS. And my trigger tonight will be only 75% of the normal trigger amount to keep my E2 from getting much higher. As is, she says it will probably be around 7000 on the day of retrieval. Yowza! It was nice to talk to the actual DOCTOR and it sounds like she's got my back. Even though I am still scared, I haven't come this far to give up now. I've put too much time, energy, and money (!) into this and I'm going to see it through. I trigger tonight at 11:15pm and there's no turning back!!!
