jump to the head of the line

Holy crap- we're doing IVF. Hcg shot tonight- intramuscular, because now it's an IVF cycle, not an IUI. Eleven follies- 3 on the right and 8 on my left (no wonder my left ovary hurts!). Estrogen is 1181... I don't know what that means. Retrieval will be some time on Friday, 34 hours after the trigger.
I'm not prepared! I've read blogs written by women undergoing IVF, but since I was stuck on IUIs for at least another cycle, I didn't memorize anything. I know the basics as far as what will be done procedurally, but I feel pretty clueless right now. Hopefully, tomorrow's meeting with the RE will answer all my unasked questions (I'm not even sure what to ask).

I'm so nervous/anxious/excited that I am shaking. It's a very good thing C isn't already back to work.
