Denver Bound

Finally! I have a semi-definite plan (at least enough to book my flights).

The donor has 15 follicles on each side measuring around 1.7 and 1.8 cm each. They'll trigger her either tomorrow or Sunday night. So, right now the retrieval will be either Monday or Tuesday. I just learned that retrieval day is Day Zero (I thought it was considered Day One).

This means either of the following scenarios:

Monday retrieval - Day 3 transfer on Thursday or Day 5 transfer on Saturday
Tuesday retrieval - Day 3 transfer on Friday or Day 5 transfer on Sunday

I booked my flight to Denver on Wednesday (which would have me in Denver a day before the earliest transfer possible) and I'm returning on Tuesday (which is 2 days after the latest transfer possible).

Rather than today being my last day at work, I will work on Monday and Tuesday (so I don't waste vacation days).

Of course, I'm really just hopeful that it'll be a 5 day transfer. :)

Now all I have to do is expect a call from CCRM either tomorrow or Sunday to let me know when my donor triggers and give me instructions on the PIO and other "stuff" (Medrol, Tetracycline, etc.). Though I'm much improved from weeks ago, it'll still be nice to smash that vial of Lupron forever! :)))

So much good luck to you!! I'm kinda confused though - if a day 3 transfer is Thursday, wouldn't a day 5 transfer then be Saturday not Friday?

I have an u/s appointment at 11am so if you're in the lobby around then, look for an Asian woman about 5'3" looking tired :)

Kayjay - I hope I do spot you. It would be so nice to "know" someone and hug them for mutual good luck! :)

WOW! Thank you for catching that mistake! I swear, I am having such a mental block with this new "Day Zero" thing I just learned about. Ugh! I edited the post so now it reads correctly.
