Hi girls! So I got an update report a couple of hours ago. All 8 embabies are doing good, still dividing! I asked for grading, they didn't tell me. They said to get ready for Wednesday morning for transfer, and they will not call me tomorrow, only on Tuesday to let me know what time to come in on Wednesday. I wish I could get an every day update but I guess they don't want to disturb little guys.
I feel like the third day after retrieval is the most crucial, as many embabies don't make it to day 4. I am a little nervous they won't make it but the stats say at least a couple should make it.
That's ace news Kat - they obvs think that some/all will make it til Weds or they would get you in sooner wouldn't they. Awww lovely - it must be so nerve wracking for you. Keep your eyes on the prize - am hoping and praying your embabies are busy dividing and growing xxxx
Cant believe I am on my 5th day stimming already. First progress scan Wednesday - terrified the drugs arent working with my low AMH - but I am having the occassional sensation in my ovaries so I hope that is follies growing! Had a little cry out of nowhere just now - catching up onn FB. I suddenly felt like all my friends (with kids) are slipping away - many of them have moved to the next stage in their lives having completed their families. I have nothing in common with them now. makes me :sad: I keep thikning I will be able to reconnect once I am pregnant - but what if I never get pregnant then I will never get to reconnect....sorry for my waffle. Does anyone else ever feel this way?
Hi everyone, really trying to be good and stay off BnB but my husband is back at work this week and I am sooooooooooooooooo bored.
Well I had 10 eggs retrieved on friday, they called sat morning to say 7 had fertililsed so was over the moon, my DH even started crying it was a great day. They said there and then that my transfer will be Wed at 11am and if I didnt here anything then that was good news. Was on tender hooks a little this morning but so far so good no phone call.
Cant wait till wed. Have been pretty sore for the last couple of days and sorry if its tmi but my bowels are extremelly sluggish with the progesterone so have resorted to prune juice, first day today so hoping it feels better by wed.
Mrs max please dont worry you will be fine, im sure of it. xxx Just dont expect it to happen as quickly as others but it will definately happen. xx
MrsMax your feelings are TOTALLY normal!!! There are days where I look at my two close friends who are currently pregnant and I think "if this doesn't work for me, how will I ever be able to connect with you?" and I have two other close friends who are off on maternity leave now and I am finding that I am not emailing / texting as much as I just don't feel I have anything in common with them. Then on the other end of the spectrum I have 3 or 4 close friends who are single, not anywhere close to having kids or even wanting kids and I think "oh god what do I have in common with you?!" .... There are days where I feel like the ladies on BnB are my "closest" friends because everyone on here is in the same spot in life, we are all going through the same battle. So your feelings are NOT alone at all!!
You're on a pretty strong dose of drugs and I have a friend on here who had an AMH that was pretty much 0 and she got 6 eggs, 5 fertilized, she put 2 back and she got pregnant - so don't let your AMH diagnosis scare you. PMA only remember!!!
Wishing - that is a GREAT report!!! I am hoping to have around that same number too. And your bowel issues ... VERY VERY common! The one thing some of the ladies on here who have been through IVF tell me - MAKE SURE you are cleared out and "flowing" before you have transfer!! So its a GOOD thing you're on the prune juice already!!! And one last thing .... I'm pretty sure here on BnB there is VERY little that is TMI
Katrus - how are you feeling today? Excited for transfer???
Reb & Ratma - how are you ladies doing? Can't wait for you guys to join the stimming party! Reb when is your next appointment? Ratma - GOOD luck tomorrow!!!
AFM ... day 2 of injections was done last night and it went MUCH smoother than the first night!!! No mixing issues and I got my full dose of Luveris PHEW. This morning I am feeling really bloated and gross and not sure if that is because of the Easter food yesterday or if I feel this way already because of the drugs. I also have a dull "headache" behind my eyes and I"m not sure if that is drug related or if all of these things are in my head Guess I'll find out tomorrow what's going on down there!!
Yes, I am very excited! I can't believe that it's only two more days. However, I really really want to know how they are doing and whether they will be doing assisted hatching today. I am waiting for another hour before I will be calling the clinic and bugging them to inform me. I mean if they gonna take them out anyway for AH, than I wanna know what's happennn in that incubator!
