Preparing for IVF

Feb 12, 2011 - 3 comments

I had my last u/s Friday.  Saw 5 follicles in R ovary measuring 10mm and 5 or 6 in my left.  They had told me earlier that I would probably trigger Friday (2/11), but I'm not quite ready yet.  So, I won't trigger until Sunday night and the egg retrieval is now planned for Tuesday (2/15-post Vday baby hopefully!).  Injections (Lupron-5 units, Follistim-150, Menopur-75) have been going well, but I've been somewhat sore and bruising more this time since I do 3 at once.  Otherwise, it is going well.

We decided finally on fertilizing 6 eggs.  We prayed and prayed about that number and were ready to go with 4, but the night before we did some more talking and we both felt like 6 would give us the greatest chance without sacrificing our convictions.  So, 6 it is.  What a relief to have that decision made.  I haven't even really worried about it since, which tells me we must have made the right decision b/c I had no peace about 4.  

I'm so excited for Tuesday.  Hoping all goes well and we get at least one little embie for a day 5 transfer.  2 would be great, but I'll take whatever the Lord decides to give us.

Good luck.  I'm so glad you were able to choose a number that you both are happy with.  Looks like I will be about a week behind you! :)  Praying for BFP's for us this cycle!!!
