7 eggs but one doesn't look so good so probably 6 eggs. We will get fert report tomorrow morning. I go back Wed and the transfer either Wed or hopefully Friday.
I wish there were more eggs too. DH is glad there isn't cause he doesn't want to make the hard decisions later as to what to do with them all.

Me I want more! lol I just want enough in case this cycle doesn't work - you know?

Started more med
Still on Estrace and Delestgrogen
now to list is
Doxycyclone
Methylpredisolone
Cranone
PIO
cutenurse24, L-SBB and *Leah* like this.

Yeah the crinone too. I think KMH did both as well. Your just on the PIO?
I have to admit the PIO wasn't so bad. I think like everything else I made it worse in my head. It takes a little longer because of the thickness but overall not bad. My blood draw hurt worse then that PIO did. I think because my arm is pretty shot because of 6 blood draws in the same spot in 7 days.

Doxy I took about a month and a half ago for two weeks while I was on BCP. I just started that again today - is that so I don't get an infection because of the transfer?

I hope my DE feels ok after the retrieval. I am sure the $6000.00 is making her feel better. lol RE told me she had 10 eggs last time but didn't tell me how many fertilized.

The Medrol (Metho....) is to help the embryo want to implant rather than reject, especially if they did ICSI or Assisted hatching...

I am on just PIO...I think because that is what worked last time, he went with it. Nothing wrong with getting it from two sources, some work better than others for some people your bases are covered

Yes, I think that is why for the Doxy...I took it non-stop and the night after my transfer was my last dose. Your protocol may be different.

EEEEK So excited for you!! You are almost there

Okay now hours later my rear end hurts from that PIO shot. It feels like I did 100 butt crunches but only on one side. I don't even think that is possible is it? lol

Thank you EVERYONE for all your support. It really means a lot to me and has gotten me through this journey thus far. I know I have you guys to vent to and It's nice to have you guy cheer me on. I hope I am helpful in all of your journey's too.

Lucy it all depends on the how the fertilization goes and if we make it to 5 days and how many frosties it will leave us. I will know more tomorrow when we see how many fertilized - praying for all 7

I wish I knew the magic formula that would just work!

Yes that would be a 5dt. One is a 8 cell A+ I don't think you can get much better than that at 3 days. Still no insurance. Perfect embies still don't always get you a BFP and not so great embies can still be a BFP It's so unpredictable and such a numbers game. I hate gambling too and this is what it feels like but with my embies that I already love. I am such a DORK
