Trying to get trigger happy

Well, it looks like to trigger is tonight and the retrieval is scheduled for Sunday. I hate the whole daylight savings timing snafu and I will not be assured that we have it figured out until I hear that I did not ovulate prematurely. I am supposed to trigger tonight (Friday) at 9 pm and retrieval is scheduled for Sunday at 8. Does that sound right? I think that is 36 hours later taking into account the time change. This is the first time in my life I wish I lived in one of THOSE places that doesn't have daylights savings.

The stats for this cycle are continuing to look good - My E2 was at 1500 or so and I have about 15 follies that are ripe and a few others that are too small. My lining is currently at 11 and I think I saw a triple stripe. I have one last acupuncture appointment tomorrow morning and I think that will help me even out a little because I am starting to freak out and worry again about fertilization. DH keeps saying that worrying is useless because it will not change anything, and even though he is oh so rational and right I have not convinced myself.

On another note, for those of you reading this that I know, we got some good news with DH's father. He had his 6 month scan and his cancer has still not come back! Yeah! I hope this can be a trend we continue to see!

Just started reading here- hello!

The DST adjustment sounds correct to me. I hope your retrieval goes well, and that you have good fertilization results. The waiting is pure torture, and I am also going through the "try not to worry" game right now. My eggs seem to be good, there are just not that many of them...

Great news regarding your father-in-law.

After last cycle, it's understandable that you'd be a bit anxious. Best of luck with the ER and the steps that follow!
