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.
