Pinch ME!

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness! Something must have done the trick! So, on Sunday the RE suspected 16 eggs and GUESS WHAT? We retrieved ALL 16 EGGS!

All were mature and have been ICSIed. We will get our fertilization report tomorrow morning.

I can't believe it, that is more than IVF #1 and #2 combined. Pretty sure it was the lupron trigger than did the trick, but whatever the case Gabe and I are very pleased. Now we pray for a great fert report. If a large number of the eggs fertilize we may be able to have our first ever 5 day transfer.

We are beyond happy, I blogged Sunday asking for ten good eggs to work with, today I am baffled with the amount we got. What makes me the happiest is the fact that I am no longer classified as having Ovarian Dysfunction, it seems we just needed the right cocktail or the right trigger. We went in this morning agreeing that if the empty follicles happened again we would move onto donor eggs and give up on the idea of using my eggs. Looks like donor eggs are out for now. Even if this doesn't work this time, we have found a fix to our empty follicle problem, and are hopefully officially on the right track.

I am not allowing myself to get too far ahead or too excited, but I feel at peace knowing that something went right this time.

I will post as soon as I get the fert report. Please hope and pray for a great one for us. Thank you all for your love, kindness, and support.

WOO HOOO!! That is WONDERFUL news! Now I forget what protocol you were on and I want to copy it! (cuz as you know, we too have lots of empty follies) ... did I suggest the Lupron trigger for you? Cuz I know that's what Dr. Schoolcraft at CCRM suggested to me.

Anyhow Tiffany, I am SO happy for you - more than IVF 1 & 2 COMBINED!!!


And 100% fertilization ... that's incredible!!! Grow embabies GROW!
