ER and Fertilization Report

Yesterday was Egg Retrieval. It went well, no hiccups. We dropped Owen off with a set of grandparents and were on our way. Got to the office a few mins early and waited to be called back. Once back there, I got changed and signed more paperwork. Tony went off to do his "thing" while the nurse started my IV. I walked into the surgery room and got all strapped in. The anesthesiologist came in and said he would give me something to relax, the nurses started dancing to Jimmy Buffet, and then the next thing I knew I was waking up in the pre-op area:) Tony told me that they got 6 eggs, but before we left the nurse came in and said that it was 7. When I was aware enough, I was allowed to leave. Tony took me to get a shake and cheese fries (comfort food!!) and we went home. I took a nice long nap and really felt pretty well the rest of the evening.

This morning they called with my fertilization report. Of the 7 eggs, 5 were mature and 3 fertilized. I am scheduled for transfer at 1:15 on Tuesday (3 day transfer). They will call me that morning to let me know if it is still on or if they will push me back to Thursday (5 day transfer). I do not expect to be pushed I'm planning on Tuesday afternoon.....until then:)


  1. Oooo. Good news! I'm trying to relive this. I forget a lot of it already. Good luck!!!!!

  2. Good stuff!! Keeping you and the eggs in my thoughts and prayers :)
