Retrieval Wednesday, 8/20

At my u/s this morning I found out I have 10 follies measuring between 13.5-18.5mm - 5 on the right; 5 on the left. I am on day 10 of stims. I'm to do the injection tonight and then tomorrow they will call me to let me know when to take my HCG shot and then go in for my r/t on Wednesday! The nurse told me this is a very good cycle. My DH's SA came back, as they put it, "A+". I am really excited and hopeful this does the trick. It would be wonderful to be pg by my 10 year anniversary on 9/11.

Retrieval also scheduled for Wednesday. I have 6 to 7 follicles that will be worked with. The rest of them are too small. Last U/S was this morning. I am waiting on Dr. call to indicate exact time for my Ovidrel shot tonight. I am exited to go through it, but also a bit anxious. This is my second IVF.

TTC 4yrs, 3 failed IUI, 1 Failed IVF.

Hi Tracey,

I am just a week behind you, I started stims on Saturday, going for my 1st scan tomorrow.

That's great news your 10 follies, and your DH's SA! I'll be thinking about you tomorow, hope all goes well.

My retrieval went fine they removed a total of 9 eggs…we where so exited over that!

After that I went home and slept all day. I am still cramping a litter today. RE office called today and most of them where not mature. As of today we have only 3 embryos. I hope they make until transfer this Saturday. Last ivf we also had 3 embries for transfer…. anyway still trying to stay positive about it.

How did it go for you Tracy?

Hi Bionouche (is it your name?), thanks for the compliment. It is pronounced KASHA. I am Polish and it is a very popular name for us.

I am fine, getting geared up for my RT next week (I posted below).

All the best to you!
