Posts Tagged ‘egg retrieval’

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!!

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.

I have stopped freaking out about whether or not my body was doing what it was supposed to since it is, plus my father-in-law is doing really good after his surgery and we wont know if he will need another surgery till monday.  So for now I am putting aside the worrying and getting the house prepared for his return home and to make it easier on us during the egg retrieval and transfer.  I’m really hoping that we will find out monday roughly when we may have the egg retrieval.  My stomach is starting to have some small cramps on the upper part, the nurse at the ivf center told me that is a good sign and I guess it was since the blood test and ultrasound came back good 🙂 I feel like my body has gotten use to the hormone injections now because I feel a lot better now, I’m  no longer crying at everything and no longer snapping but I know that will only be for a very short while I figure till the new injections start, the trigger shot and then the PIO.  sunday Jason and I start taking the Z-pack.. BLAH but I know it’s for the best so I will suck it up and just do it, plus it’s only for 5 days.  so I’m off to finish up laundry and picking up the house hope everyone is having a good day.

Oh my goodness how time has flown by! I was just looking over our IVF calendar and I just can’t believe it. I have 2 more days till I start the menopur and follistim injections, 9 days till Jason and I start taking the Z-pack, then only 10 to 15 days depending on how my body reacts to meds of course till the retrieval! I just can not believe it I’m so excited and scared at the same time LOL. Jason is taking off from work starting the 16th through the 24th to be on the safe side since it’s a 2 1/2 hour drive to the IVF clinic.  we are debating renting a hotel room for a few days I think we will decide that a little closer to the time.  Oh all my labs came back normal from my new OB-GYN he ran a bunch of tests to find out why we had miscarried 4 times and had 2 ectopics so far I think it was just my tubes. they were so severely scar tissue but now they are gone and hopefully their wont be any more problems.  oh man I took a few pictures to show my meds I get overwhelmed at times just looking at them lol although the calendar that Jason made for me really helps to take  some of the confusion out of it.
