I'm home from retrieval. All my retrievals have gone smoothly. But... not so much this one. I don't know what the anesthesiologist did, I mean how can you mess up something that has been done very successfully 4 times before?? But I wasn't falling asleep. I did finally fall asleep, but it was pretty light, and I woke up still in the OR!! I was very confused as to WHY I was awake, they weren't even really done yet, I started having some anxiety about everything, my heartrate spiked... I must have fallen back asleep, as the next time I woke up I was in my recovery pod, with all the doctors crowded around me watching the monitors. That was lovely. Which made me even more anxious until they told me it was just my heartrate... I was like, hello, I'm anxious as heck!

The RE told Den they got 12 eggs. Which is okay, I guess. I'm disappointed though. Really disappointed. Last time we got 25, which gave us a good number to work with.

The nurse just called me a little while ago to tell me that of the 12, 5 were mature enough to ICSI.... which for me is actually VERY good. I'm thinking we'll have 4 embryos... 5 if we're really really lucky. I just hope to heck they're good quality. We're going to be transferring 2 embryos and attempting to freeze the rest, and if we have just 4 in total I don't think we're going to get any frosties. I'll get the fertilization report tomorrow when I'm at work.

I'm already starting to think about next cycle. Sigh. I've been disappointed far too many times.

2 IVF babies and 1 surprise!

Oh honey, that just made me want to cry. I'm so sad that your hope has been stolen from you like this.

You have everything positive I have to offer right now.

(((hugs))) I am sorry it was rough. I hope you get 5 embryos.
