Hi Ladies,
So as you may know they retrieved 9 eggs at my ER yesteday. I was pretty dissapointed at that number. I know "quality over quantity" and "it only takes one",
but seriously, I had bewteen 22-28 follicles at each ultrasound.

I REALLY think my clinic messed up the timing in a big way. On my ultrasoubd last Friday I had 2 follicles at 18mm, 2 at 17mm and 1 and 16mm.

I should have triggered that same day.
But instead, I was asked to stim for a further 3 days, and had my retrieval 3 days after that! So 6 days after noting an 18mm follie (including 3 further days of stimming)

I think I lost many follies in that time as they just grew too big.

I also think I was pushed further along due to the long easter weekend.

I'm quite unhappy about that.

I am praying that these 9 eggs retrieved are excellent quality and for a good fertilization report, which I will get this afternoon.
