Day 8 of stims and my largest follicle is on my right side and it's 17mm. My doctor has told me I'm most likely triggering on Thursday for Saturday retrieval. I'm excited but starting to worry because I'm having minor cramps right now. I'm sure it's fine but I'm just a tad bit concerned. I was very active today (bending down a lot) so now I'm just laying down in bed, resting. I'm still on the cetrotide to keep me from ovulating and should here back from the nurse in the next hour.

Retrieval is on Sunday at 8am. I will trigger tonight with 2500units of novarel at 9pm, lupron @ 10pm and then lupron at 10am. I'm excited and feeling really uncomfortable. My e2 is in the 6000s. Doctor is worried about OHSS but I'm taking all the precautions. I'm eating a high protein diet, drinking drip drop (an electrolyte drink), taking cabergoline, and taking is easy. Not much else we can do. Fingers crossed for a success retrieval and lots of CCS tested normal embryos!

Retrieval went well. We got 16 eggs. Less than we thought but I'm really hoping it's quality over quantity. We shall see. I'll get a call tomorrow about fertilization report. I'm in a little pain right now (on a scale from 1-10 I'm about a 2) but that's to be expected. Fingers crossed for a good fertilization report. I'm really nervous about it since we didn't get as many eggs as we normally do.

Got the call from embryology. 16r 12m 12 fertilized through picsi, we have 10 2pns and 2 0pns (they most likely won’t make it but they’re waiting until tonight to make final call). Now I won’t hear anything until Saturday. Gulp!! I’m super nervous but happy with the results so far.

Good report! Is this similar to what you had before? I don't remember your averages. Keeping all fx!
