All is well.

January 19, 2011 at 1:29 pm | Posted in IVF #4: I'm STILL doing this? | 25 Comments

We left O last night in his cousin’s room, sobbing for me.

It was the hardest drive home.

But by the time we got home, my SIL had left me a message saying that he not only had stopped crying within minutes of us leaving, but O and D chatted for a few minutes. Then there was silence.

And this morning, at today’s retrieval?

They got 28 eggs.

(That’s fucking NUTS.)

I’m super sore and tired, but am happy that part’s over.

Means there’s a good chance we’ll have a good enough number of embryos to make it to a day five transfer.

You know, provided the quality’s still good.

Anyway. All is well in chez Serenity today.

That’s a very good thing.

    Can’t wait for the next update on your cycle! Hoping for more great news.

  17. Woo!

  23. That IS fucking nuts! Go you. Hoping the fertilisation rate is up there too.

  24. Yay!!! You’re past due for some good news, I think. So I’m glad you got some. Hope it continues.

  25. 28 eggs!! Sorry to miss so much, M had strep last week so I’m just catching up. I can’t wait to hear the fert report and crossing everything that this results in a sibling for O.
