So, going into this IVF #2…I was different. I knew what it was about. I had done this before. I wasn’t as careful this round. I worked, even until late last night..oops. I wasn’t as bloated. I wasn’t as sore. That must mean less eggs but hopefully better quality I kept thinking. And I prayed..and was thankful. IVF #1 was full of the unknown. IVF #2, I knew the process. I also knew what happened last time. I had 5 egss retrieved,(I only have one ovary), I couldn’t go forward with the transfer, due to poor lining and so one morula stage embryo was frozen on Day 5. And I was happy with all of that….one baby on ice 🙂
I just got out of my retrieval for this IVF #2. (So I’m still a little groggy…hope this makes sense;) I was hoping to expect around the same number of eggs. We did do a little different protocol, we used Estrogen instead of birth control pills before stimming. I also had more followers on this blog…and more prayers that I truly felt…so thank you all.
The results? 11 🙂 I can’t believe it….
Happens to be one of my other LUCKY numbers. 5 & 11….how fitting… I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I’ve thanked God for all of this. I’ve thanked Him for this struggle and I thank Him for these 11 eggs. May they be fertilized and healthy and create our baby 🙂 We will wait until day 5 and freeze these embryos too. I still need to work on my lining..but for now, I am thankful for these 11 🙂
Thanks again to you ALL. I would name you one by one but I don’t want to forget anyone..in my groggy state 😉 You know who you are. Your comments and love and prayers do not go unnoticed. You keep me positive on this crazy journey and I truly appreciate you 🙂
Now, I will rest. Monday at 10am, I will find out our fertilization report. Continued prayers are welcomed. Grow embryos grow 😉 Have a beautiful rest of the weekend friends..xoxoxoxoxoxo
