ER complete

Hi Everyone, We had ER this morning and they got 10 eggs from my sister. I was hoping for more...I feel liek w/ a DE cycle, everyone always gets tons of eggs. The doc said that they got an egg from all mature follies- 17mm or bigger. And now that I think about it, 10 is inline w/ her e2 results from 2 days ago, which were 2600.

I am trying not to stress out until we know the fert report tomorrow. Hoping and praying w/ all my might that it's good. The waiting is the hardest part!!!

FX'd for a great fert report. Congrats on a successful ER. I know you wanted more but there is no way to change the outcome. Just try and have faith(as hard as it may be) that all will work out in the end. And remember that these aren't the same old eggs that you usually deal with.

Good Luck!!
