Topic: Retrieval

Good Morning!

Yesterday morning we had our egg retrieval, they got 22. I was surprised how much pain I was in all day. This morning they called to let us know that 18 were mature and that 17 fertilized. Now to anxiously await the daily phone calls.

Hope all is well with everyone else!

Re: Retrieval

Those are great numbers! I hope lots of them make it to blast!

Re: Retrieval

My goodness that’s a really good number of eggs. Hope they grow and you get your positive soon.

Re: Retrieval

Yay! Those are great numbers! I go in for my retrieval on Friday, but I think I only have a few that will be mature by then.

How do you feel now? Are you comfortable enough for driving or work yet?

I'm triggering tonight and my instructions are to mix 2mL water with the Novarel but only inject 1.5 mL. That seems odd to me, but I’m second guessing even my own ability read at this stage!

Re: Retrieval

I feel fine now. I was driving and at work the day after retrieval. I was super sore the day of, I couldn't do anything. I actually took the prescribed pain pills every four hours like it said I could.

I seconded guessed everything and read all the directions multiple times. Everything I had to mix was mixed with saline. I just like to think that the doctors know more then me so I just listen to them. I will be thinking about you Friday!

So they said 15 are where they should be. Still keep our fingers crossed.

Re: Retrieval

I’m crossing them for you too! 15 is a fantastic place to be!
