ER tomorrow

My egg retrieval is tomorrow. My last u/s showed 19 follies (probably 13 mature).

Today I am so ready to get this done. I feel horrible, my ovaries feel huge and hurt and all I want to do is cry. IVF is not for wimps.

PLEASE WORK!!!

Jamie,

I am so excited for you! I hope that you get lots of beautiful little eggies tomorrow! Please do keep us updated on the fert. report!

I agree with Monica...Drink lots of fluids and take it easy! IVF is definitely not for wimps, and I hope that you feel better soon! Hopefully so great numbers tomorrow will make you feel better! :)

Good luck! I will be thinking of you!

Just got out and I feel so much better than I expected. They got 11 eggs...which is good, but I was hoping for more. Will find out tomorrow whether they fertilize or not. Sure hope they all do, but not holding my breath.

Glad that you feel better than you expected!

Now just sit tight and wait for that call tomorrow...Try not to obsess too much over it. It will be what it will be, and remember it only takes one little embie!

Praying for a wonderful, strong fert report. Can't wait to hear!

Well, my fertilization report was certainly not what I had hoped for.

11 eggs, 8 mature, 8 ICSI'ed, only 3 fertilized normally. Yesterday I was really devastated, but feeling a lot better today...we still have 3 chances. In my perfect scenario, I would have extras to freeze. As this is likely our one and only IVF (due to finances), I'm very scared that if it doesn't work, my TTC days are over. But today I'm being more optimistic and hoping that at least we have this shot.

My transfer will be 11/11/11...please be a lucky day!!!
