Aug. 23rd, 2006 @ 01:20 pm Fertilization report
Tags:
I just got off the phone with the nurse from the clinic, and I'm doing the happy dance. Of the 8 eggs they retrieved yesterday, 7 were mature and of those 6 fertilized (yay ICSI!). We are currently scheduled for the transfer on Sunday, as long as more than 5 survive past Day 3. They may still end up calling us tomorrow for a Day 3 transfer on Friday. I started prometrium today; after talking to the doctor he does not feel that there is any benefit to PIO, and the shots can hurt!

Weird thing, I've been sitting here all morning waiting for the call. The thought occurred to me that they may have called my cell, so I went to pick up the kitchen phone to check messages. As I lifted it, it rang! It, of course, was the nurse, and the call didn't even ring on her end *g*.

I am in no additional discomfort (some is to be expected when they jab a needle in your ovaries!), I've lost 2 lbs and my temperature is normal. Hubby is also trying to drown me in Gatorade. Things are looking up!
Who does she think she is?

They seem to be doing well, I didn't get a call today, so fingers are crossed for a day 5 transfer!

Thank you. The better news today was that I didn't hear from them, so it looks like a day 5. Although the nosy part of me (or, um, all of me) wants to know how they are doing right now!

Thank you! Today's picture post had me snorting tonight. The guys up here are ramping up and going crazy searching for and hiding food. They amuse me and the pup every morning.

Oh, things are starting to cramp but I didn't hear from them today so that's a good sign in my books.

I've kept it pretty low-key this time. I was so excited in January, and it hurt so badly. Thanks for the luck.
