Fertilization Report

This morning I received a phone call from my favorite nurse and I could tell by her voice that she wasn't calling me with bad news. Out of the 27 eggs retrieved two were immature and one was degenerated. So 24 were injected and out of those, 22 fertilized and are growing!!! I can't believe it. I have 22 babies in a petri dish right now!! The only so-so news that I got was that my Heparin Anti-XA level was low so they are upping my Lovenox dose to 40mg from 30mg. I would rather do that now than have problems when I am pregnant.

So, as of right now we are planning on a Day 4 transfer on Saturday (my clinic is closed on Sunday). We still need to be sure that this OHSS doesn't take off and get bad. I am very bloated today and sore but that is to be expected. I am only up 3 pounds so there is no need to worry yet. I started the Dostinex his morning so I am hoping that it works. I actually feel better than what I expected and I have every intention of doing some Christmas shopping later. I can honestly say that this is the first time I have ever been excited about a cycle. Things are going so well!!!
