Retrieval and Fertilization Report

Yesterday was retrieval.  Everything went well!  We got 32 eggs this time- 28 of which were mature and 21 fertilized.  We are having 5 frozen this morning at the 1 cell stage.  The funny thing is that we ended up with the exact same number of mature eggs this time around but 3 more fertilized.  I'm hoping that is a good sign.  I feel pretty lousy yesterday and that is continuing so far today.  I'm so glad I took off today as well as yesterday. 

I started the Crinone (in place of the progesterone shots) yesterday as well as the antibiotic and steroid for the assisted hatching.  We will be transfering at 11 am on Friday!  My plan for today is just to relax and lose the pain so that I can get back to school tomorrow before leaving Friday for the transfer.


  1. Good to hear you had a few more fertilize this time! I hope the couch rest does you some good and you start feeling better real quick. Good luck on Friday!

  2. I've been following your journey recently. I'll be going in for a retrieval next week. This is my first IVF experience and I'm thankful for other strong women who are willing to put their stories out there. Reading about your journey has been helpful for me!! I hope the great news keeps coming for you! Take care!
