5 transferred (over 3 transfers)
So with a 1/17 rate I was just nervous since they were only predicting 8 good eggs this go around. It only takes 1, right?
So I woke up before my alarm went off around 5:40. We had to be at the hospital at 7. The hospital was literally across the street so I wasn't worried we wouldn't be on time. I rinsed off, got dressed, and was ready to go. I had to fast so I didn't get to eat or drink anything.
One thing about the Cleveland Clinic I liked was they had a wishing well in their lobby. Mike and I would make a wish with each retrieval/transfer. The UH Hospital doesn't have one of those so I was so happy to see this in our lobby.... (we each made wishes / said prayers before we left for the hospital)....
We got to the hospital by 6:55. I proceeded to wait to talk to my nurse Dawn about my upcoming medications but she never made it in, most likely do to the snow, so I talked to a different nurse instead. After that we were taken back to the surgical prep area and given a little room. I undressed, climbed on the bed, and got to know the nurse back there pretty well. She was soooooo nice. Diana. Loved her! She put the IV in my hand and then we waited until 8:25 to start.
I was taken into the OR and used a stool to get up onto the table. My lady bits were pretty much on display for everyone once I put my legs in the leg holder thingies. They didn't ask me to count backwards this time and I was mid-sentence when the next thing I knew I was waking up in the recovery room. I look down at my hand and this is what I see!!
14 eggs retrieved! Woo hoo! Granted they take the eggs from even the smallest follicles to burst them but I'm hoping at least 8 to 10 are mature. Fingers crossed. I will hear when they call with the fert report. By the way, they wrote it on my hand because as you're coming out of the anesthesia you have no short term memory.
Trigger update: The trigger is registering pretty strongly in my system 2 days post trigger.
