Make that 37 follicles!!!!

Okay, I thought I was feeling even bigger each day. Today's sono showed 37 (nope, I am not lying), 37 follicles. Imagine shoving those into two almonds. Crazy!
Anyone who has gone through this knows what I mean when I say it is "heavy". Even walking from one side of the house to the other causes this awkward feeling of movement inside me...like I have some weights attached to my intestines or something. Hmmm...wonder if this counts as exercise??!! Again, thank God for loose fitting tops.
So, now I am waiting for the call from my nurse manager to see when they will be taken out. Not sure if I will continue my Follistem and Repronex tonight or not. My guess is one more day. My largest was at 18mm and the smallest around 10mm. Lining was at 9mm+
The fingers are still crossed....

Wow, that sounds SO painful. Still hoping all goes smoothly for a successful retrieval and all that follows.

Holy cow, that is an amazing follicle count! Are you okay? Did they tell you to drink Gatorade and eat lots of protein?

Those are some impressive ovaries you've got there! :-)

Wahhh! Your updates weren't showing in my blog reader. 37!!!! How are you feeling? Are they concerned about OHSS again? Sounds like things are going well, though.

This totally counts as exercise. Take it easy and let me know if there's anything I can bring you/do for you.

Thanks everyone! I go in tomorrow and am crossing my fingers and saying my prayers. Yep, OHSS is a big concern. I am on the salt diet again. I think I bought Safeway out of pretzels and Gatorade today!
