Egg retrieval and transfer... DONE!!! Wish us luck that IVF#2 will be a success!

We got 11 eggs this time, 7 mature, and 5 high quality embryos. We had one 8 cell high grade embryo transferred this morning, and our remaining four frosties will be cryopreserved by morning's end. We're so excited, mostly just to have a few more chances in the bank. We are so much better off this go-around than we were last time!!!

Gosh, that sounds wonderful! I will have everything crossed for you, and I can't wait until the 10th! Will you be testing beforehand, or do you have superhuman willpower?

Superhuman willpower I hate testing before the BETA. I hate those negatives more than the waiting!

IVF is fine once you're committed to doing it. If you're not ready, then I think it can be pretty overwhelming. However, if you are resigned to the situation and ready to go for it, its not too bad at all.
