Thanks Ashely. We'll likely transfer two. It really depends on the embryos!

Again, so excited for Tuesday. Today is the third time I have to give my shots in a random place. Wish me luck with that!

Side effects: Very, very bloated, some sharp pains in my abdomen (ovaries), and a 1.1 lb weight gain from starting gonal. So not bad. I also get some headaches, I'm moody and a little tired.

Today is my last day of shots before the retrieval!

IVF cycle

Tomorrow is my egg retrieval!!!!!!! I have to be at the RE's by 6:30am, my retrieval is scheduled for 7am. I've had surgery before and have been under anesthesia before, but still a little nervous and I hope that all goes well.

Last night I gave myself the 2 ovidrel shots and my last dose of Gonal-F (450 IU's ). I still have some pain and bloating of the ovaries. It hurts if I stand up too fast.

I get a reprieve from shots tonight, but start with the progesterone in oil tomorrow.

Again, I'm so excited! Wish me luck!

Oh Robyn, I really hope so!

Jen, I felt a little bit of nausea yesterday, but for the most part I was okay. I was a little surprised by this as I felt so sick with one ovidrel shot before IUI, maybe with all the meds my body is on a little ovidrel doesn't make an impact!

Thanks again ladies for all of the love and support. You ladies are the best! I'll definitely keep everyone posted!

Thank you ladies!

Had the egg retrieval today. I'm still out of it from the anesthesia, xanax and tylenol 3. I had some spotting and cramping today, which is normal. Overall the retrieval went well, but they only collected 11 good eggs (15 total collected). I know 11 isn't bad, but I was hoping there would be more. I guess really I only need 1 good embryo for implantation. I'm so nervous/scared to learn of the fertilization report. I will get the call tomorrow morning. Again, wish me luck!
