We triggered tonight!! Hubs was a total pro😘. By taking this last shot of HCG before egg retrieval it prompts the eggs (inside each follicle) to complete the maturation process. Ovulation will occur within 36 hours (approximately)
Egg retrieval is set for 7 am Thursday! I am a ball of emotions. Anxious, nervous and excited and honestly a little nauseated. Not sure if it’s the HCG shot or my nerves. I ‘m also not looking forward to going under anesthesia. I didn’t react well at all the last time I was under, but it will only be for 10-15 minutes total this time. I’ve got a shit ton of instructions to follow before retrieval but I’m READY.
I don’t know how I will sleep the next 2 nights but I am just so ready to get this show on the road. This is just a small step in the direction we need to be.
Once egg retrieval happens , how many mature eggs will we get? How many will fertilize? Will the embryos live and multiply cells to day 5? Will they be good Quality? (Lower quality embryos are less likely to implant ) will we have any embryos to freeze in case it doesn’t work?
SO MANY THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT! And I am a worrier. I try not to be but I can’t help it.
They will transfer 1 embryo about 5 days after retrieval. We most likely will not know the status of our embryos until it’s time to transfer. TORTURE. Ugh. Patience is a virtue I need to learn. Can’t look back now but I am waiting for our miracle to happen. Send your positive thoughts. We need them.
