Before my retrieval on Monday I mentioned to my very sweet nurse anesthetist how I was concerned about ovulating before retrieval, not that I had any reason to believe it would happen. She proceeded to tell me about a woman who once was coming in for her retrieval concerned about the same thing... and there was a road race going on directly past the clinic so the streets were blocked off. The woman pleaded with the police officer that she had to get through because if she ovulated she would be out thousands of dollars! And he let her through. Funny story.
So I've just come to realize our city's annual marathon will be tomorrow morning (reminder, my transfer is tomorrow morning)... I pulled up the route map from the local newspaper website and yes, the marathon goes right between me and the RE's office, and directly by the RE's office.
I will not panic. The paper reports that while traffic will be slow that very few areas will be blocked completely. I called G and told her we need to leave earlier than we planned to get there. So we will be leaving 30 minutes early to get to the clinic that is normally a 5 minute drive... I will not panic. I will stay relaxed and peaceful. Crisis adverted.
