As of 8:30 p.m. (Pacific) I am officially triggered, officially ovulating!
In exactly 36 hours we'll be harvesting those eggs. BTW, here is my first sonogram of my right ovary!
Beautiful, isn't it? Look at those gorgeous follicles. A face only a mother could love.
I'm still feeling so many contradictory emotions, and it's not just due to the elevated estrogen! Right now I feel elated, hopeful. And then I think of Mr Jem's seaman (ha!) analysis tomorrow, and I'm full of dread. If it doesn't go well, he'll visit the urologist tomorrow afternoon to prep for surgery on Egg Retrieval on Thursday. If they don't find sperm, then we'll have to go with donor sperm. Mr. Jem was involved with the selection, but after looking at a bunch of profiles he said, "You pick, I can't take this anymore." This was when he was told that we had a 98% chance of getting sperm from a biopsy. We'll know for sure our chances tomorrow.
So many ups and downs in this process.
