This morning, we didn't have to go into the clinic. So it was nice "staying in" today. We trekked upstairs to the Club Level lounge, which is only accessible by those staying on the Club Level floor. Luckily, Jerry thought ahead and got us a Club Level hotel room. It's a bit more expensive, but it's so worth it not having to go out and get food or order the super expensive room service every day.
We took Buttercup for a little walk around downtown this afternoon... Well, it's more like we walked and Jerry carried Buttercup. There is no way I'm letting Buttercup set foot on the dirty concrete outside. She wouldn't know what to do! We didn't want to venture too far away from the hotel though. We got back to our floor (11th) and let Buttercup down to stretch her legs. Jerry stood on one end of the hall and I stood right in front of our door. We kept calling Buttercup to come to us, so she was running back and forth between us. One time, she ran past me even though I called out her name. She turned around and looked at me but still kept going. I had to chase her down at the end of the hall, where housekeeping was cleaning a suite. Buttercup stopped in front of the lady hoping to get some lovin'. But I scooped her up and scolded her. I don't think Buttercup paid any mind to me.
Jerry has been telling me to drink Gatorade practically every 30 minutes. After all this is over, I'm not drinking it anymore. So if you ever offer Gatorade to me, don't be offended if I give you a dirty look.
Tomorrow morning, we go back to the clinic for ultrasound and blood work. I'm anxious to find out how many follicles I have and how big they are. I'm just hoping that the 18 follicles that I have already have grown big enough for me to start the Cetrotide injection. I can't believe I want to add another injection to the list. But that just means that it's getting closer to egg retrieval, fertilization, PGS, embryo transfer, and then home!
