Posts Tagged ‘Transvaginal oocyte retrieval’

So the pain has died down a whole lot to just a very mild mild pain when my bladder is full, which by the way I have to go more often already?? never had to get up in the middle of the night to go pee and now I’m up twice a night just to pee. Is that the PIO cause it seems waaayyyy to early for prego symptoms. I also have very very moody or hurt feelings very easy lately. I also have pretty tender sore breasts but I know that the last two I listed is from the PIO. The infertility monster is starting to rear its head today…. every time I pee I’m looking for blood. but I have no symptoms of this ivf not taking or a miscarriage. though this is my first time getting this far with ivf so I don’t know if it is the same. I feel pretty good my tummy is nice and bloated and like I said the pain has really died down. I’m feeling pretty good that this cycle will work for us. the PIO shots were not that bad till today… day 5 on those shots but now both hips are getting bruised so starting to hurt a lot more. Hope everyone is doing great and Come on Feb 13th hurry up and get here so I can find out the results!!!!

me with a picture of our 3 little embryos right after our transfer

So had the transfer yesterday!! The embryologist wasn’t there when we first arrived, so the doctor came in and explained why he was doing the transfer 2 day and not 3. There was no issues he had just decided that he wanted to transfer all 3 of them into me to give us the best chance due to our history but he said I don’t know how your eggs are doing since the other doctor isn’t here yet. . About 30 mins later the embryologist showed up and my bladder was so mad at him but quickly forgave him because he showed us a picture of our little eggies and then explained the grading scale, for those who do not know… it goes class 1 through class 5, 5 being very poor and 1 being excellent. so 1 of our little eggies was a class 2, it was a 5 cell embryo but had slight fragmentation which made it drop to the class 2. the other 2 embryos were 4 celled perfect circle embryos that were class 1!!!!!! So they took me into the room to get the transfer and allowed Jason to scrub up and go also. Hubby kept busting out a camera trying to video tape the procedure!?! Hello!! mot going to happen! and did not happen! He quickly got over it through when they brought in the embryos and transferred them 🙂 The doctor came in the room again after the transfer and told us “well I wasn’t expecting your embryos to be the best of the best which is why I had decided to transfer all three. So I just wanted to let yall know and understand that triplets is a major possibility since all three embryos were so great. Now we will be hoping and praying of 1 -2 babies because triplet pregnancy comes with a lot of complications’. I do not see why this cycle would not work at all but please understand that they may not implant or we could still miscarry.” TRIPLETS?!?! Oh my goodness….. oh and hubbies first words after doctors speech were… “I don’t know if I can do 3 college funds?!?!?!” LOL that’s my husband always thinking about money. so I was on bed rest yesterday and couch potato today and if hubby had his way I would be on bed rest till pregnancy test which is Feb 13th. Oh I was wondering if any of you have experienced stomach pain more then cramping ranging from mild to moderate, it comes in waves and I have notice that it gets bad when I have pressure like when i got to pee! Would that be the follicles or from the transfer do yall think? I understand with my fibromyalgia the pain feels worse then it probably is but OUCH man. Hope everyone has a great day!

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!!

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.
