My journey through infertility

I'm a bad blogger, but we have embryos

We transferred two beautiful embryos on Friday.   Once was an 8 cell and one was a 9 cell.   My RE puts our odds at about 60% right now so I'm trying to find the balance between hopeful and realistic.  Beta is Wed of next week.

We got 18 eggs

It went as well as it could possibly go today.  The only trouble was trying to get an IV into my dehydrated self.  It took two pokes but they pulled it off.    The RE said to plan on transfer on Friday, but it could get bumped to Sunday if things are going well.

We have a retrieval scheduled

 I will be triggering tonight for egg retrieval on Tuesday afternoon.  At yesterday's monitoring I had 15 follicles measuring over 13mm so hopefully they will all grow nicely before Sunday and give me some fantastic eggs to work with.  Going into this process my hope was to get right around 15, so at this point I'm pretty happy with how everything is going.  I have had no issues with the shots, but the pills are doing a number on me.  I've been nauseous off and on all week, so I'm counting down until I can take the last of the pills.

The fun has started

I started the stims yesterday, and this morning I'm already dealing with a headache.  I think I'm in for a looooong next few weeks.   The shots themselves have been no trouble at all, so I'm just crossing my fingers this is just a random headache and not a sign of things to come.
