DE IVF #1 - OMG!!

I'll get to the OMG part in a sec but first, to summarize so far.

We've been in Portland since Tuesday September 27th in hopes that the donor would have the retrieval on Thursday but it ended up that she was responding a little slower then her last cycle which brought her to a retrieval on Sunday (today). So to pass the time we've been shopping a lot and doing a lot of walking in NW Portland - it's so beautiful here.

Friday, G had to give me my Delestrogen shot without the guidance of his mom and he did a great job! Saturday night was my first Progesterone shot - which G also gave me and again did a stellar job! I must say, I really have to hand it to him. He goes from being a guy that's scared of needles to having to give them - not sure if I could even do that. Good job G!!

Today We had to be at ORM for 9:00am so they could do a blood draw for E2 and P4 levels which was 2346 for E2 and 13.3 for P4 - they said that those are good numbers so I guess that's good, I hope - and a sample from G.

About an hour later after we left we got a call from the embryologist saying that they retrieved... drum roll please... 50 yup 5, 0 eggs! I can't believe it!! I'm just so shocked, is that even possible?!?! Her previous 2 cycles she got 43, 46 so I guess it is but WOW is all I have to say. Hopefully things are starting look up for us.

I'll try and up date tomorrow when we get the call with the fertilization report. I pray that we get some good numbers. Please everyone send us some good vibes.

Until tomorrow...

  1. That is an outstanding number!!! Fingers crossed that the majority are nicely ripe and mature and very fertile :) Very exciting, I'm really happy for you.

    I'm sorry, I've been distracted a while and not following, but will you get to keep them all for future siblings? (yes, I'm that optimistic, hope you don't mind.)

  2. Holy crappers!!!! That is Amazing!! Our donor will be about 5 days apart. Awesome! Hoping this is IT for you!!!

  3. Hi Danielle,

    You bet we get to keep all the embies for future siblings - I'm trying to be very optimistic too!
