Keeping our fingers crossed

Lots to say on this one so here it goes.  First of all, I had my Ultrasound to check my lining.  The doctor that did the u/s was a man of few words, but he did say, "Looks like your ready."  Thanks doc!  

So  on to the blood tests, all looks good there for my hormone levels.  Yay!  Then the Nurse A called with what I thought was just a routine follow up call.  Nurse A told me how the lining looked good and blah blah blah...BUT {with a long pause} she told me that it looks like my frickin' body is trying to ovulate.   Fantastic.  The nurse is hopeful it won't happen based on the numbers {progesterone level}, but I've gotta admit, I am freaking out a little bit.   
Let me break it down for you.

No matter what my body does,  the egg retrieval has been set for the 13th.  {Remember Lucky 13?}  I will also go in for another hormone check on the morning of the 13th.  So that means if all goes well, my progesterone level is still low, and I'm not ovulating,  we will be having our Embryo transfer on the 18th.  Ya to the hoo!!!  
But...If My progesterone level is high that means my body decided to ovulate and we have to scrap the 18th for the transfer.  The embryos would then be frozen.  Then I would have to wait through yet another cycle and do a frozen embryo transfer in February or March.  uugghh...

All I can do is keep my sunny outlook on this and hope for the best.    I have been so excited for this transfer.  I can't even tell you!  The fact that my blood draw will be on the 13th is a good sign.  We've got a lot riding on this day.  So, keep your fingers crossed and come on Lucky 13!
