Retrieval report

I’m home from retrieval!  I was thrilled to find out that they got 12 eggs!!  They warned me that probably only half will be at optimum maturity, but I am still very, very happy.

The hardest part was the IV – my veins kept collapsing and they had to stick me 3 times. They finally got it in my left hand.  Thank goodness my next blood draw isn’t until my beta!

More later, including the tale of our hotel. I’m on very little sleep and I need a nap.

After 5 IUIs, 2 IVFs, and the diagnosis of diminished ovarian reserve at the ripe old age of 29, I am now looking for information on embryo donation and adoption. I'm taking a break from blogging but will return when our path out of the world of IF becomes more clear.
