Triggering Tonight and My 100th Post!

It's my 100th post! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for over a year. Thank you all for continuing to read and support me on my journey.

Mr. C. and I went to Charleston this morning for my ultrasound and b/w. The nurse just called and told me my E2 is at 5000 and I'm ready to trigger tonight at 9:45pm! ER will be Thursday at 8:45am. Yikes! I've got 31 eggs that are >15mm. I feel like crap, just like yesterday, but worse. Although, a special delivery at my door earlier made my day! THANK YOU Heather, Craig, and Patrick for my beautiful surprise flowers! I now have a gorgeous bouquet of daisies and yellow roses (my favs) to look at and cheer me up when I'm feeling yucky.

Another new development is that starting after the ER, I will be taking D.ocinex, a pill that is supposed to make E2 levels decrease and therefore help with the risk of OHSS. I've never done that before, but it sounds good. Anyone tried it? I'm also trying to come up with new ways to drink my whey powder. Mixing it with gatorade is NOT working. It's DISGUSTING!!! I'm going to try making a strawberry smoothie tonight. I'm just thinking of myself as Little Miss Muffet, sitting on a tuffet, eating my curds and whey.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR 100th post AND your Trigger! WOO HOOO! I'm rooting for you. Keep that protein up, girl! It helps. I mean eat, drink or whatever you can think of with the protein. I ate baked chicken like it was going out of style last time. Take it from a OHSSer, you don't want that stuff. Also something that helped me was swimming. I think it helped to move the fluid around and exercising continues to help me with my fluid retention. Lots of luck and many prayers your way.

Wow...that's a lot of eggs girl!!!

They make flavered liquid protein shots now too that I've heard are pretty good. I saw them at Smoothie King last week if you are at all interested... :)
