Reporting in!

Thank you so much to everybody who stopped by with words of good wishes and encouragement. I truly appreciate it. I am plonked on the couch feeling pretty bloated and a little sore. Before the procedure, Dr Ding-Dong popped in and I predicted that he would retrieve between 10 and 15 eggs. He predicted he would get 18! Guess what, he got 17. I am thrilled. Last time we only had seven. We had 6 embryo's, 4 were transferred and the other 2 did not make it. Of course now I have a new worry- I hope we get a good number of fertilized eggs. I'm also worried because everything is going so well and I know I will be devastated if it does not work. I'm a bit too groggy to contemplate anymore then that right now. The drugs really knock me for six and I feel like I've been punched in the ovaries. I start PIO shots tomorrow. My friend M is coming over to show B how to give the shots. I think he's a bit nervous. My E2 yesterday was 3170 .

17 eggs, yeah. That's incredible. I hope that you get lots of fertilization going on. Good luck.

17 eggs, well done you! The fertilisation aspect of things was what made me the most nervous. I almost threw up when I was dialling the clinic to find out the number. Best of luck to you, now go and get some rest!

Woo for 17! That's fantastic. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for a great fertilization report.
