Hey Mare and Annie

Retrieval was yesterday- piece of cake!! they retrieved 8 follicles and I got the call this morning that 3 fertilized. I go in on wednesday for the transfer. I am still trying to stay calm and optimistic and just getting through one hurdle at a time. I was happy just to develop follicles and then happy again that they retrieved 8. I waited until 1 today and the nurse called and said that 3 had fertilized so I was happy again. Just taking everything one day at a time. Still taking my zoloft which is really starting to kick in with the panic attacks and I also think it is helping me stay calm with the whole IVF process!! I am even giving myself the progesterone shots!! Can you believe it??????? Bruce tomorrow night so that will be my last night of a few beers until my beta test!! I just read about Lucylou and of course I am thrilled about Taz!! Now we need a bunch more bfp's from everyone on this board to get some happiness going!! I will say that no matter what the outcome from this procedure it was worth every penny. This group of Dr.'s, nurses, etc were all outstanding. I always felt comfortable and loved at the office. Whenever I called with a question, a nurse was on the phone immediately!! What a first class operation they were!!

tmer - hey there! been thinking about you! sounds like everything went really well! how soon can you test? also, was the transfer or retrieval painful? i am currently on lupron and heparin shots - i start pergonal this friday and will go in for tran/retreival either end of next week or beginning of the following week... i am doing zift, where they put fertilized embryos in the fallopian tube... anyway, i hope you are taking care of yourself - please let us know how everything is going! :-) hugs, jen

I am also psyched about this cycle- it was a miracle that I produced any eggs at all. The day I started my meds my fsh was 10. I did 8 amps of gonal f and 2 amps of pergonal. The more I read about fertility drugs these 2 seem to have the most success. The retrieval was nothing!! The sedate you and 15 minutes later it is over. I was a little crampy but didn't even take any advil. The transfer is wed at 12:30. You go in with your dh and they insert the catheter, shoot the eggs in and you lay there for half an hour and then you go home and lay down for 2 days! I did the hcg shot and it didn't hurt and neither did the progesterone shot. I bought some cream over the counter called emla-x and you put in on your butt and cover it with saran wrap for 1/2 hour and you don't feel a thing!! It cost $59 but it is worth it.

Maryann- I say go for it with your own eggs. I only had a 10-15% chance and they had me at a high dosage and everything went smoothly. Even my estrogen cooperated. My last fsh was as high as 11.5. I was happy it was down for this cycle.

Annie- how many follicles are you developing with your meds?? maybe they should increase it a little!! It won't hurt to ask

Hey annie and Mare

They took 8 eggs and I know for sure that one was 22 and the other was 18 and not sure of the other ones. I knew not all of them would fertilize but was happy that 3 made it. I held the sperm in the cup between my legs on the ride there and then at exactly 36 hours after the hcg shot they took the eggs. They put them in a petri dish with the sperm and then they call the next day to let me know how many made it. I have to call tomorrow am to make sure that they are still ok. So hopefully, right now the babies are nice and warm in their petri dish. The transfer is just like an IUI! I lay there for 1/2 an hour with legs in the air and then I go home and they say to lay down for 2 days. Bruce tonight so I am happy!! Last time I will be able to drink for a while!!! Just remember Annie that you are younger than me and your fsh is not as high so this could be your month. Your chances increase with each IUI...........Keep the faith!!!!!!!!! love ya girls!!
