I'm back home and I think everything went well. I was not completely put to sleep just a little sedated. When she put the med. in my IV everything went blurry and distorted. I just laid back and listened as best I could. It was painful at some points. I remember starting to cry a few different times. When everything was done they dimmed the lights a little more and let me rest for about 45 minutes. Im running a little slow right now. Just relaxing in bed watching some tv and going to take a nap in a few.

As of right now they got 22 eggs and left some that were not mature. The nurse said some of the follicles were empty....not sure what that means. We are definitely NOT doing a transfer. The nurse will call me tomorrow and let me know how many embryos we have. I need to go in on Tuesday for another u/s to make sure everything looks good. If it does we will schedule the LAP when AF arrives. The nurse said we might wait a full cycle between LAP and FET but not sure at this point.

All in all things went well, just a little tired right now. I'll be on later checking on all you of you ladies. I just need to get some rest right now.

Thanks everyone. I feel fine now that I have had a nap. Lower stomach is slightly sore by pubic area. Other then that I'm doing well. Just relaxing with no kids for the weekend. My oldest is with his dad and my youngest is with grandma. She missed him and wanted to spend the weekend with him. DH and I will be relaxing and hanging out all weekend.

Wow, that's a lot of eggies! I hope you get lots of perfect embies

As for no transfer, that may be best When my IVF failed, my RE later said that we may have had better luck if we had frozen the embies, waited a cycle and THEN transferred because my body was so stressed from the stims and retrieval Hindsight's always 20/20 I suppose!

Best of luck to you!

good number of eggs!!


for all 3 of my IVF cycles over half of my follicles woudl be empty.

the most likely explanation is that the egg inside was very immature and still stuck to the side of the wall and they couldnt suck it out.
