Just got home from ER. Very weepy. I was told 15 follicles at last U/S. Was hoping for 10 eggs, and they only got 6. I hope that is enough, and now I am totally upset that I won't have any to freeze. I know that people have less, so I know it can happen, but news was still hard to hear. Had total breakdown right at clinic. Great. I am normally a totally rational person, so I keep telling myself that it is just the hormones making me act crazy. Transfer is set for Thursday as of right now. I just want the call tomorrow to hurry up and come. Maybe all 6 will fertilize?? I was hoping to transfer 3, and have a few to freeze. I just need to trust and put it in God's hands.

I hope everyone else is doing well!!

Hi Daisy and Saunagril,

Just wanted to introduce myself 'cos it seems like we are in almost exactly the same boat. I had my ER on Sunday and got the call from the clinic this morning. Daisy, I can totally relate to what you say because i had exactly the same reaction as you. I had 13 follicles but they only got 3 eggs. Of those 3 only 2 were good quality and thank God they both fertilized. I know exactly how you both feel. I was convinced we'd have plenty to freeze etc. But the way I look at it is that two is a good number to put back (and it seem like you both have more than that!) and so we have what we need for now. I'll worry about the next round if that time comes....

And I also just wanted to let you know that my friend who had IVF is now 8 months pregnant and she only had ONE embryo. So try and be positive and I wish you all the very best news when they get back to you with the numbers that fertilised. Do let me know.

Lots of fertilising and dividing thoughts to you both.

Okay, I am feeling better after doing some more reading. It seems like we are all in the same boat. It's quality, not quantity, right? We should all begin repeating, "I ONLY NEED ONE!"

Abogenphol, Kushka and Saunagrl: I am so happy to have you guys on here in the same boat. :) It has been a headache-saver for me today. We are going to be fine. Thanks for all the sharing and support.

I think what messed me up is that I have a friend going through it as well that retrieved 15, had 10 fertilize and froze 8. She is two days ahead of me, but I need to stop setting my expectations based on how she does. All of our bodies are different, and we are each running our own race. Hopefully, we will all have the same outcome.

As Kx stated: lets all fertilize and divide!! :D

Deftsonemo_ Exciting! The shot is a piece of cake, but you will probably be a little sore in that area for a few days. Something in the HCG leaves you tender. You are getting close to the big day! Good luck!!! Wishing you the very best! :lol:

Glad to hear your feeling better Daisy. I know what you mean about the support on these boards. I don''t know how I'd have coped without it.

Did your clinic get back to you to tell you the number that fertilsed? I hope it was good.

I have my ET tommorrow so praying for success!

Hey Kushka,

I thought your ET was today! Disregard message on other board, you will be PUPO tomorrow!

We are in the same boat - 2 fertilized embies for me. I was a little upset at first, but have gotten over it. We still have two! It could have 0, I guess. We are going to be fine.

Lots and lots of sticky baby dust to you tomorrow. I have a feeling it is going to be great!!

hi daisy and kushka (and everyone else in our boat) :)

i was trying so hard to stay off the boards...wanted to stop thinking about anything thru this 2ww, but i can't stay off....i'm dying to hear how everyone else is doing and compare notes!

i had 2 transferred back on mon...it's weird that we all had 2. my mantra since then has been just like you wrote, "we just need one!" i've been feeling pretty good, a little tired and my left ovary is still big and twinges a lot. i've been trying so hard not to overanalyze and compare to my last cycle any feeling at all, but it's so hard!!!! :) i'm only doing endometrin and baby asprin now so being off shots is really nice and my stomach is healing...and my arm from all the blood :) every time i feel that i'm up for going for a walk my body nixes that idea so i'm seeing that as a sign to take it easy. i've done a good job with that....i only leave the house to shop! we have a wedding this sat. and then 2 next sat. so at least the weekends are super busy to try to make the wait go by faster.

well now that we've fertilized and divided are we focusing on implanting?

baby dust to everyone and keep us updated!
me-29 DH-30
not ovulating, higher fsh (12.5), and ureaplasma bacteria that could impede implantation
3x clomid = BFN
2x IUI = BFN
IVF 1 Feb 09 = BFN :(
IVF 2 June 09 = BFN :(
