My retrieval was yesterday and it went very smoothly. I was surprised at how easy it was and I really didn't feel bad after at all. I slept for a few hours in the afternoon but was up and at'em by the evening.
Results...6 eggs retrieved. Fertilization result...5 little embies! Ok, I know that number isn't going to win any awards, but it is 5 more fertilizations than we've achieved over the past 19 months.
And I'm pleased to report that I have a transfer scheduled for Friday (Day 3), but was told that I may get a call in the AM moving it to Sunday (Day 5), depending on how they develop. Now I just need the progesterone to do its magic and thicken up my lining. I asked the nurse today if I should start doubling up on the suppositories (I'm also taking a POI shot each morning - oh so fun!) and she laughed and said no, that I should be good. Anything to get the environment just right for my emby or embies.
On a slightly funny note...I have 2 older brothers. One has 4 kids and one has 2 and is expecting his 3rd in August. So I called my mom after I got the fertilization result and told her that I'm the child of hers that has the most kids at this moment. Guess it isn't all that funny but always trying to find the humor in this difficult time.
Gonna keep on taking it one day at a time and praying for quality because I sure don't have quantity!
