Fertilization report & update

Its been four days since our last update. Things have been super busy but here is an update in a nutshell. The day of the egg retrieval my pain was pretty bearable. However, as time went by the pain meds were leaving my body and it was more uncomfortable. I took some Tylenol and put a heating pad on my ovaries and took a six hour nap! I woke up feeling SO much better in fact I think that long nap really helped me recover a lot faster. I was scared of getting OHSS with all those eggs they took out but my doctor put my on a fluid restriction right away of only Gatorade and protein at every meal. Well let me tell you by Saturday evening I was walking as normal as I could and my pain was not that bad. I also did not feel bloated. On Sunday I felt great! So I did beat OHSS! I do believe the Gatorade really, really helped me! That is what did the trick!!

On Saturday we got our fertilization report. Out of the 31 eggs only 25 were mature. So in reality we only had 25 eggs. Out of those 25 eggs 14 fertilized with ICSI. We were a little bummed at first with this number but we got a call yesterday about our 3-day report and all 14 are still dividing correctly and strong! So we feel good going into day 5 with 14 embies going strong!

Tomorrow is our embryo transfer! Holy smokes! Where did time go?!

Today we plan on going to a movie and having a chill day. We are trying to get out of the house because for the next five days we will be house bound!

Will report tomorrow about the transfer! Transfer is set for 9AM!

Please pray for us!
