Ryann, whoa! So exciting! Congrats!
Wondercat: That is so how I feel too. I really, really would love another baby, but I also have a peace and acceptance about whatever God gives me, because I know how blessed I am with my DD. This is crazy (and lucky), but these IVF meds are making me really emotional - but in a good way, unexpectedly! I am just mushy-ooey-gooey over my DD. I can't get enough of her. I with these kinds of crazy hormones on everyone!
AFM - Exciting times over here. Just got back from an U/S. We're expecting to be hit by Hurricane Isaac sometime in the middle of the night tonight and all day tomorrow. My RE told me that he has 4 retreivals scheduled for tomorrow, and the bad part is that they've advised our whole city to stay off the roads tomorrow! But he said they have to do what they have to do! The staff at my clinic is SO AMAZING! RE said I look on schedule for a Saturday ER, and that he wants me to come back for one more u/s on Thursday to confirm, then we'll trigger on Thursday night. There is a good chance that we'll be without electricity over the next few days, so my ER recovery will likely be hot and sticky, but I'll survive! Right ovary had a good number of 13-18mm follicles, left ovary a little smaller with fewer and around 8-13mm in size. Last time around, they got 12 eggs, 7 fertilized, 3 made it to blast, we transferred 2, got a BFN, and went straight on to an FET with our lone frostie, where we got our BFP on Christmas Eve. It was all a whirlwind, and how hopefully this next little one will be conceived in a hurricane!
Like I said, exciting times!
DH: 32, Male Factor
4 Failed IUI
IVF #1 - BFN
FET #1 - BFP!!! DD born Sept 2010
IVF #2 - Chemical
Next: Work on improving DH and my fertility while saving up for next round. Why does something that we want so badly have to also be so expensive?
