We got the call.
Out of 17 eggs, 13 were mature and 11 fertilized normally.
I am a little bummed. I was hoping for 8 and I know should be happy with 11. My RE said it perfectly. If you get 10, you want 11. If you get 11, you want 12. I just know the more we have to start with the better our odds are to getting to day 5.
I looked at past cycles, and hopefully we will get at least 2 embryos to make it to day five.
I will get another call tomorrow to let me know how they are progressing. I expect some to arrest unfortunately but I have high hopes for this group.
I honestly think this part is harder than the stim part.
On the way to the ER I started thinking about worst case scenarios. I don’t know why I do this. I was hopeful for 8 eggs, thinking that would hopefully get us one embryo to day 5.
Our drop off usually starts on day 3 and my nurse told me yesterday that the clinic no longer provides updates on day 3. This makes me nervous. I mean even with updates I know there’s nothing we can do, but it still sucks.
I’m rambling now sorry. I’m still partly drugged.
Anyway, we got 17 eggs! When the nurse told me I actually said “shut up”.
I know they all won’t be mature, but I’m hoping maybe 10 will be and fertilize.
Now off to eat and nap!
I’ve been sorta lazy about blogging about this cycle.
I don’t know it’s because I am tired at the end of the day trying to balance work and family, or I just don’t have very high hopes and excitement this time.
My numbers looked decent at my last scan on Thursday and I got the go ahead to trigger. My ER is bright and early tomorrow morning so at least I won’t have to wait very long. Luckily my mom came up to take care of H tomorrow and Sunday. I can’t imagine I will feel like doing much, especially tomorrow.
I will forewarn the nurse that I am prone to anesthesia tears so there are no surprises. I guess I am hoping we get 8 eggs. I am trying to have low expectations given my numbers.
12 hours before we find out.
