3 days till beta

I hope the rest of the week hurries up, this seems like the longest wait of my life, and I am not testing before hand I want to wait for the phone call, if it says positive then the next day I will poas just to have for the pregnancy scrapbook. I just sit here going back and forth in my mind I am pregnant or no I am not pregnant, I didn't really feel any symptoms today, so I am not, or that is a sign I am. One symptom I am having that I have not experienced is the frequent urination I go like every hour, I do not even get a good nights sleep, and my back does let me know when I am standing or sitting too long, but rest of symptoms nausea, sore bbs, weird smells that can also be attributed the prog. shot. So don't know I hope I find out by 1 or 2 pm its going to depend on the nurse working that day, one nurse she calls you as soon as she gets the results of any test, the other nurse is by the book so that would mean not finding out till like 5pm when I am sitting in traffic.

So far my symptoms have been tired, I took a nap at work during my lunch, everything smells funny, don't know if its pregnancy symptoms, or prog. symptoms.

Had my transfer today, they were 2 perfect blasts, I now have 18 snowbabies, 7 they are watching one more day then they will freeze, and then 21 frozen eggs. My Beta is scheduled for July 3rd, and now hubby is freaking out no turning back now, he kept asking me did the doctor say of any side effects to watch out for that something is wrong, do you think this is going to work over and over. I am now really in the two week wait period and scientifically pregnant until proven otherwise.

Got the call today and they have changed the transfer to a 5 day transfer so I am assuming eggs are doing well, I have not asked any questions, if all of them are doing great or is it some of them that are doing well, I guess I will see on tues, I do not want to be stressed thinking every hour on the are they doing good, I am going to live in my ignorant bliss right now and assume that all are good strong quality cells and they are dividing beautiful and will make it to the blastocytes stage, who would of known that chapter on cells in high school and college would of actually been put to use.

Fertilization report #1

The nurse called this morning with fert report, she said they froze 21 eggs yesterday and then did 12 the conventional way what I like to call the test tube baby, and 8 are now embryos, and the rest was done by icsi and 19 of those are now embryos, out of the 27 fertilized they froze 14 embryos, since it was morning I am going to assume they were in the process of freezing those so I will know more in the morning. Just waiting for call in morning to see if we are doing a day 3 or day 5 transfer

Tonight we did our first pio shot the drama of it, I think me and hubby sat and discussed for 30 minutes, then I had him watch it several times on youtube, then I'm sitting there with half a butt cheek hanging out while he looking at my cheek pointing out is that where I am suppose to shot it, no that is my back, is that it no that is the side of my stomache, then my sister comes over she watches the you tube video, takes a needle and practices in a pillow, then she said she is going to do it, I am freaking out because that needle is so big, but in the end she did it perfectly I didn't even feel the needle go in, and now hubby is talking about I will do it tommorrow, I don't know since sister did it perfect I don't know.

Egg retrieval

Had er today we got 55 eggs, the doc did not want to fertilize all the eggs so he said they will freeze most of the eggs, we had to sign more consent forms hope that does not mean another bill for freezing already paid to freeze embryos. Not really any pain just feel empty you can tell ovaries are still a bit swollen it just feels weird, no follicles, the only pain I felt was when hubby was hitting the speed bumps, I came home ate took a really long nap, woke up took a percocet and my steriods and antibiotic. I am happy about the procedure I had a dream last night that I was in operating room and doc said I already ovulated. So now just waiting for the fert report tommorrow, was suppose to go to work tommorrow but I wll call in won't be able to concentrate no matter what the results are tommorrow.

I got my finger on the trigger...

Yeah I got the go ahead to trigger tonight, yesterdays egg count was 52 and e2 1890, today's count was 59 and e2 3011, so doc did not want to push me, had my preop with him today said he expects 30 or more eggs, said he will probably just take half of them and freeze right away and fertilize the rest, then the next hurdle will be making sure they are of good quality. I feel like a chicken that is sitting on eggs, when I walk I am hunched over, sometimes I get sharp pains, but when I down my water I feel better. The doc said he is not worried about OHSS because all my follies are big, he said OHSS usually happens when woman have a lot of small follicles, which means the follicle is mostly fluid, so after retrieval the fluid leaks in the body. I am also happy because my doc is on call this month for egg retrievals and egg transfers, the docs in his practice rotate each month who is responsible for er and et so I am happy that this is my docs month.

I am now day seven into stimming, my e2 results on friday was 405, my e2 today was 756, my ultrasound showed 19 follicles 10 on the right and 9 on the left, biggest one on both sides a 12 and smallest was 10 but they are mostly 11. She said I also had alot of smaller ones too, the ultrasound shows that my right and left ovary are almost touching because of the follicles, she said I think I am bloated now, she said by er I will be very uncomfortable, I believe her I went shopping with my sister today and all the sudden my lower back just felt so heavy and then I was mad I was stuck in her little car where the sit would not lean back, I was so uncomfortable.

stimming 2nd day

Well this is my second day of stimming, yesterday when I took my first shot in the morning, later in the afternoon my ovaries started to feel weird it is hard to describe they did not hurt. just a weird feeling expecially for me because I never feel anything from my ovaries, but another member in my buddy group on ff posted she felt the shot working to, so maybe it was not just wishful thinking, taking the shot is not hard, I was not scared about that part, the part I am scared of is taking the pio shot since there is the chance of hitting a nerve, that is what scares me. So in thirty minutes I will have day two down and 10 more days to go.
