Retrieval Update

Just a quick update after my retrieval. I'm back at home, just woke up from a groggy post-propofol (drug used for conscious sedation for Egg Retrieval) nap and am feeling a bit more at peace. My deepest fears didn't come true today. We did actually get some eggs... 14 in fact! So I'm cautiously optimistic.

Now the brutal 24 hours of waiting to hear if any were mature and fertilized comes. Hoping for a few good ones.

Thank you all for helping to hold me up these past few days. It means the world to me.  Its been an emotionally messy ride, but I have been able to find some calmness for now (or at least the propofol is still having a mild effect.. LOL!)

I'll post more tomorrow about the fertilization report and our next steps.

  18. I'm so happy for you, 14 is a very good number. And now everything crossed that you'll have a great fertilization percentage. Not sure if you've mentioned it but do you use ICSI or not?
    In any case - wishing you'll have plenty of perfect embryos!
