So we received the call around noon today that out of my 5 eggies 3 of them fertilized and have no abnormalities! My doctor has decided to go ahead and do the transfer tomorrow morning since he wants to implant all three of the eggs. He says, no since in waiting around to see if one egg is better then the other egg since he will be implanting all three, they will have a better chance inside me. Suddenly I am scared shitless. I am freaking out so bad and I don’t know if its the infertility monster or the hormones or both. I honestly believe God will see us through to the end with a healthy baby, but for some reason I am still so scared. Hubby wants to get a hotel room after the transfer and stay the night so I can get bed rest right away. Nurse thinks it is fine to drive home after we leave the ivf center. I think hubby will win this one though…

So we arrived at the office at 6:15 this morning, got pulled back 6:25. My nurse went over all the information and had us sign the last consent form. The doctor came back and asked any questions then after I said no talked a mile a minute reviewing what all was fixing to be done, then stopped in the middle and asked so now when are you doing the progesterone in oil shot? Lol nurse warned me he likes to do that so told him tomm and he finished his speech. Nurse tried to start the iv in the side of my wrist…. OUCH even with the numbing shot. Ending up going through the normal spot. Nurse told Jason when she comes back here she isn’t going to remember anything and her short term memory will be really bad so she will probably ask you 20 times how many eggs? I walk back with nurse to the retrieval room and hop on the table, wasn’t even a ounce nervous more excited and wanted to get it over with so I could get some water already lol. they got me situated and started giving me the drugs I remember looking up and going “huh, the ceiling is going all hazy…. then nothing till they pulled me onto the other bed. I woke up as soon as they slide me over and looked the nurse in the eyes and said… How many eggs? she looked at me surprised so I again asked her with a clear tone… How many eggs? She hesitated and but then told me…… 5…..FIVE…. FIVE EGGS!!!!!!! I burst out crying and thanking God and Jesus to which she leaned over and said.. “no hunny it’s a GOOD number of eggs” they wheel me back and look to my husband with concern over my reaction and told him we gathered 5 eggs but we don’t know why she is crying, to which he responded.. “because she is so happy, it’s be a long hard road to get to this point.” We know we are not out of the woods yet, but this is one major hurdle completed that we were not sure if we would be able to complete. We get the call tomorrow sometime to see how are eggies are doing with the fertilization update. Doctor said the transfer will be on Saturday or Monday. Hope everyone is having a good day, I’m going to go lay down now cause boy I am hurting!!

In about a hour we will be going in for my retrieval. I’m not nervous at all, I know God has me and will bless us with some good eggs. since I have a really low amh I am hoping for 4 eggs. It only takes 1 egg so I’m not worried.

They called me and told us that my estradiol went from a 288 on sat. to 736 today!! I now have 7 follicles that are over 20mm one of them being 34mm!! So at 7:45pm tonight hubby gave me the trigger shot which by the way wow… didn’t hurt stung for like maybe a second then itched for like maybe a minute, then nothing. we shall see how I act in the morning LOL. We are so super excited!!!! Our retrieval is set for 7:45am in the Frisco office which is where we are use to going so happy about that! Was surprised to hear they are putting me under though I thought they only did the loopy cocktail oh well. We have to arrive at the Frisco office at 6:45am so we are going to head up to Frisco tomorrow afternoon cause I really do not want to 2:30am to drive 2:30 hours to be there in time. So hotel room is all set and waiting for us tomm. Have I mentioned we are super excited!!!

So results are 3 huge follicles on each ovary with multi follicles that could also be good. My estradiol is 287, so I am on 3 vials of menopur every morning 300 units of Follistim every night along with the Ganirelix shot every evening until Monday. Doc says he wants my estradiol to get as high as it can before he does retrieval. He doesn’t sound as though he has that much hope of there being any eggs but he still wants to give it a go. He told me today there’s nothing else he or I can do since I am already on the highest dose he will do. He says for what ever reason that he can not figure out my ovaries are acting like they are much much older then I am, I’m only 31 years old… I’m glad he is willing to still do the retrieval though he told me if it was anyone that didn’t have my history he would have canceled this cycle. I feel as though if this cycle does not work that he will be telling me to look into other options like donor egg, which was brought up for a second in this appt. So what we know for now is meds till Monday morning do blood test that day then trigger that night and retrieval wed, unless he decides at the last second to cancel, but from the way he told us today I don’t think he will.

I was told and even signed a paper when I first came to this ivf clinic to NOT bring babies or kids due to the nature of this clinic and I agree with that so why is it there are 2 babies here this morning!?! I’m already hormonal as it is this just hurts!
