Egg retrieval

This post is going to be short and sweet because I’m still a little groggy and looking forward to some r&r. But I did want to check in and let everyone know how retrieval went today. We got 7 eggs retrieved today! I am pretty happy about it but now it’s a matter of waiting until tomorrow for the fertilization report. We should hear sometime tomorrow morning how many fertilized and then we will have a three day transfer on Monday morning. I’ll let everyone know what they say tomorrow! Thanks for all the thought and prayers!

Ultrasound 5 – cycle day 14

My ultrasound this morning showed seven follies still growing strong! They all measured between 17 and 21mm. Julie called a while ago and told me to do 150iu of gonal f (half of my normal dose), my normal 20iu Lupron and my dexamethasone. Then I do my trigger shot tonight at 12:30 (set the alarm!) and I’ll have egg retrieval Friday morning at 11:30. I’m starting to get really excited and of course nervous! I go in tomorrow for blood work to make sure the hcg (trigger) got into my system and did its job – something my former RE never did and one of the things that Dr. surrey said could have been the problem. Please keep those prayers coming! Thanks!
