IVF, Take Two
54

Hey, gang -- I'm trying IVF again. I didn't post during our first try and we weren't successful, so I'm counting on the positive energy of this board to help with this go-'round!

There's been a bit of a hiccup. I was supposed to start the estrogen priming protocol tomorrow (CD 21). However, AF had other ideas and showed up today. What the what?!? And get this: my RE's lab is shutting down for a month for its biannual maintenance, meaning we wouldn't be able to try again until July (an eternity!).

The good news: the doc is going to try a different but similarly aggressive protocol that will take less time, so we can start this week as planned. I'll find out the details tomorrow when I go in for blood work.

So that's my story. I'll definitely keep y'all posted -- and would welcome any P&PTs, cheerleading, crossed fingers or whatever nice thoughts you can send my way. I'll send some back to you, too!

Hey, thanks everyone! Status update: of the six eggs, they fertilized five and four are growing into embryos. If all goes well, I'll have two more embies than last time! Transfer is either Wednesday or Friday -- I'll keep you posted.

Hi, all -- the retrieval went well: quick and totally pain-free. They harvested 6 eggs. I was hoping for more but whatever -- it only takes one! I have a gut feeling that it's a good batch. We get the fertilization report tomorrow, and embryo transfer is slated for Wednesday. Wish me luck!

Thanks, Susan and Martha. The big harvest is at 9:30 am/ET if you wanna keep me in your thoughts!

And really, the progesterone is not so bad. Really!
