And, yes. The nice nurses at my local clinic had an update on the donor when I arrived. She is responding well to stims and as of Stim Day 4, they are tracking 12 leaders (all around the same size of 10/11 for those interested), and a host of smaller ones that might still have time to catch up. Her bloodwork looks great.
Initially, I was kind of bummed to hear only twelve?? (I am a member on a DE board where donors are frequently are pumping out 20-30) but I have to remember that it's quality, not quantity.... right? I keep reminding myself that this a 26 year old with proven fertility.
(just more stuff to obsess about now!)
At this point, it's a safe bet that retrieval won't be over the weekend, but probably early next week. In the meantime, I'll be chewing my fingernails!
And, thinking positive.
I have a new mantra today... This WILL work. I repeated it in my head about a hundred times lying in bed last night. Universe are you listening???
