Okay

Retrieval went fine. The grand total is 6 eggs. I was hoping for more, but am still happy with the 6. Hopefully they are of great quality and we get some nice embies to transfer on Wednesday.

My RE (Dr. Chat) did the retrieval, so it was nice to see such a familiar face. Afterwards he gushed about how picture-perfect the retrieval was so at least I get an A+ for the mechanics. :-)

I've been reading everyone else's blogs, but have been slacking on commenting lately. I'll plan to catch up tonight. Just know that I've been following everyone and thinking about you a lot!

Thanks again for all of your wishes for good luck. Hopefully they worked this time!

Go eggies, go eggies, get busy!

Here's hoping they get it on with those swimmers and cook up some great embies for you.

Never got that many myself. So, I think 6 is fantastic (I understand though that we always hope for more, there is just something comforting in numbers in IVF). Hoping the best!

Yay! Six embies is very good!!!! I hope they all get busy with the swimmers and do their THANG! Just think they're probably getting down right now! Did you see my infertility tattoo I got? I posted a photo of it on my blog for 9/2! It's my first tattoo and I'm very excited about it! :)

Excellent news sweetie!! 6 is a good number :) Can't wait for the fert report, hoping and praying that those eggies make strong embies and that they make you that much wanted baby/babies!!

Thinking of you!
