Prepare to Have Your Minds Blown

[I just woke up from my post anesthesia coma and my husband has confirmed all these facts].

I awoke to the nurse telling me that they retrieved twenty six eggs.

I didn't believe them. I asked them to double check.

Then they came back and told me that they retrieved thirty two eggs.

They asked Tony to go rub one out again to make sure they had enough good sperm.

I got to drink some Sprite while I waited.

If this were my first IVF I would be super excited right now, but this is my fifth attempt. I can only assume that something will go wrong.

Wow - what a great haul!

musicmakermomma said...

That is amazing! I'm so excited for you. I completely understand how different this would be if it were a first cycle - I'm in the same place, waiting for the other shoe to drop. Hopefully it is just our turn for some good stuff.

Oh my goodness!!!Can't wait to hear the fert report as well.

PS. Just wanted to let you know that my doc told me during the poor quality options discussion that HGH improves egg quality.

Wishing you the best of luck!

finch said...

Your IVF cycles are better every time, but this one really tops them all. I can't believe that someone with high FSH could get this many eggs! Amazing! It seems like you've already overcome a lot of the hurdles you encountered in the past. Enjoy this success!

Pundelina said...

Thirty fricking two!?!?! That is amazing - (thanks Growth hormone?). I am hoping that your baby is in that batch!

:o)

Eggs said...

That's amazing! Its a number's game really - the more the better! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

My donor had her egg retrieval today as well, and she too did very well. So looks like we'll be testing about the same time! This is my first donor IVF (but 6th IVF) so I am right there with you, i.e, not a newbie! Good luck!

jenicini said...

What in the world?!? My mind is blown! Just take it one day at a time. Can't wait to hear the fert report!

areyoukiddingme said...

Awesome! One step at a time.

Do you feel like an overworked chicken?

Love that you made Tony "rub one out." I don't get to hear that phrase often enough any more!

Melissa G said...

WOW 32!!! I know it's hard to be hopeful considering everything you've been through. So I'll do it for you. Looking at your past results, 32 is amazing and I think it's just a sign of good things to come. I can't wait to hear the fert report.

Hoping and praying SO hard for you.

Kate said...

Well holy shit, that's a lot of follicles. I'm pretty sure you'll end up with some nice blasts giving that starting point.
I do know one person from a bulletin board who did consecutive transfers - 2 on day 3 and 1 blast on day 5. And she got pg for the first time ever after multiple failed cycles.
Hope youg et a great fert report tomorrow

Panamahat said...

So far, so good! Looking forward to hearing about an excellent fert report!

B. said...

Good luck with your fert report! That is an amazing number, I bet there are lots of good ones in that group. Kudos to your DH, for 'rubbing one out' twice! LOL.

GOOD LUCK!
