Re: May cycle buddies :)

Just a quick update from me=) 6 eggs fertilized, which is great. They expect about 1/2 to make it to day 5, so hopefully we are left with 3 good one. I will have the transfer on Wednesday, they call that morning with the final report before the transfer. So for now it is out of my hands, I am just e...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Hi everyone! Just a quick update, I will try to do personals tonight. The ER went well, it was quick and easy, I was asleep before I knew what hit me. I actually feel pretty good now, just some minor cramps, but no worse than AF and a little tired still. So they retrieved 8 eggs that are good enough...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Thanks for all the support everyone, you ladies are amazing! I am really starting to freak out tonight. I know the retrieval shouldn't be a big deal, but I am nervous about the anesthesia and I also think that giant trigger shot is making me a bit more emotional than normal. I will be really relieve...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Rio - I don't actually know that they are mature eggs yet, but that is the Dr's best guess with the size of the follicles. I guess there is a possibility that they aren't, but he seems confident in this. My twins were conceived through IUI, but it was my fourth IUI (we had also done clomid with time...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Rio - 6 mature eggs is great! You only need one. Looks like we are both up for Friday, I am excited and a little nervous. This is my first IVF, and this is the most nerve racking part for me. I take my trigger tonight at 9:30, so we should be having our ER's at about the same time :D Good Luck and I...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Just a quick update and I will write more tonight. So the appointment today went well. Thanks you all for the good growing wishes, it must have worked. My follicles were full size today so I trigger tonight. The only worry is that my e2 level is still pretty low. My RE said I could just run low, or ...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Rio- I am sorry that you didn't have the follicles count that was high. Hopefully though all the ones they take will be high quality mature eggs. I will either do my er friday or sat, so we can enjoy the wait together, will you do a day 3 or 5 transfer? bei - yay! I am sure you are really excited to...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

DCRunningMama - so my RE told me no high impact from stimulation until after the egg retrieval, his worry is that the ovaries can twist which could be serious. Then I am okay to do whatever for 5 days then no high impact again until after the pregnancy test. I am going a little stir crazy since I us...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

So today was a kind of bummer of an appointment. Basically my eggs didn't grow at all over the weekend. My e2 levels didn't rise either. My doctor said this very uncommon and they would not expect this in someone my age and with my medical history. Then he made that confused frowny face that doctors...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

I can't believe this week is here already! Tomorrow I find out how much my follicles have grown and when my retrieval will be this week. Hopefully I did some good growing this weekend and it is more towards Wednesday than Friday.

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Welcome Ringo. I think that your odds might be better than you think. I am not at one of the top clinics in the US and there are very high success rates for women under 35. Per transfer my clinic last year had a 75% pregnancy rate for women under 35 and a 65% percent live birth rate for women under ...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Just a quick update from me. I will do personals tomorrow. My ultrasound and blood tests were both good today! I am growing a little slower than he expected, but my levels are go so my RE is happy. It may push the retrieval back to around the 7th, but I will know more after another ultrasound Saturd...
