Almost there ...

Another ultrasound this morning - they estimate she'll be ready for retrieval on Wednesday, meaning the HCG shot will be administered tomorrow. One final round of Menopur tonight (300 IUs ... we're out of Bravelle, and have 4 vials of Menopur left, so the nurse said we should be fine using up our stock in lieu of ordering more Bravelle) Needless to say, my wife will be relieved after the barrage of needles that has ruled her life these past two weeks. She is in quite a bit of discomfort, and to make matters worse, she had a mole removed from her back last week, leaving a 1 inch incision (2.5 cm for those in EU) - not fun for her. I really feel for her, and admire her determination to persevere through this.

It's going to be an intense 3 weeks on all fronts - wish us luck - and to anyone else who is in cycle, best of luck to you.
