EPU Tomorrow

July 6th will be our retrieval.  I have hesitated to put up any updates as this cycle was far from normal.  I ended up with 15 days of stims, normally has been 10.  The cycle was slow and a little nerve racking.  We ended up going to the clinic 5 days in a row for very close monitoring.  Sunday brought the good news of "your ready for your trigger".   Fortunately, I have loads of follicles - the doctor stopped counting at 20.  All are in line at 1.8 - 2.1 in size, and a few little guys may catch up in time for retrieval tomorrow.  Of course, in typical Mark and Kerrie fashion, there is a blackout in Toronto and we are worried that if it remains black tomorrow, what will this mean for our retrieval.  I am sure there are back up generators so we should not be too worried.....
One thing I noticed this cycle is how exhausted I felt, especially after the trigger.  It is now 24 hrs past trigger and I am starting to feel better.  Guess HcG has a 24 hour half life.
