Retrieval went well. Transfer is on Monday!

I am sorry for not updating my blog yesterday.  Between the valium, phenergan, versed, and the pain med (I think I got something for pain but who knows.  I was out of it), yesterday was an exhausting day.  I don’t remember a whole lot about the retrieval.  I do remember a point where it was very painful but then don’t remember much after that.  I kept zoning in and out.

They retrieved 15 eggs!  I was so excited about that.  I was in the recovery room forever.  As usual, my blood pressure was low.  This is what happened after my surgery for my ectopic too.  My blood pressure was like 70is over 40something (I think).  I can’t remember the exact numbers but it was low.  They kept checking on me and asking how I was feeling.  It was probably over an hour or more that I was being monitored.  Finally they brought me some juice and crackers and my blood pressure went up enough that I could go home.  But, I pretty much slept all day yesterday and then slept all night.

This morning I got a call with my fertilization reports.  Of the 15 retrieved, 4 were immature, 1 had a broken zona, 2 degenerated, and 8 fertilized!!!  Yah!  I am so happy about that.  When she started telling me about all the ones with problems I was getting a little worried.

The transfer is for tomorrow.  We are planning to transfer two embryos but I will let you know for sure when we get home.  I will try to update the blog as soon as I can.
