Havent been on in a while. Have been 'focused'!!
The egg retrieval was delayed two days as they wanted the follicles a little bigger. I did find it painful and uncomfortable. For some reason I thought Id be totally numb down below!!! But no!Anyway they got 17 eggs. So amazing.
Then I took a week off. And just watched dvds, small light walks just generally being off work and relaxing. Think it helped. We just pottered around shopping, looking for things for the house, relaxing. We'd a great week off!!
By the Wednesday we did the embryo transfer. That was much easier and we had four good embryos. 3 to freeze and one to implant. So it went text book for us, about time...!!!
Today we got a call from Sims to say I'm pregnant . Cant believe it. Have never been pregnant before!!!
Last week I was himming and hawing about doing a home pregnancy test. They say don't. But was getting excited. It was negative. I nearly died. Then of course worry till the blood test. So shouldn't have tested. Couldn't tell my husband, so like that I was in no mood for chatting! And he didn't know why. I just said we have to prepare ourselves for a negative result. So anyway, we are delighted to get our goal, pregnant. Now we are going to take it one week at a time. Continue the injections, gels etc.
Its funny one thing that turned me off IVF was that someone said they don't support you after the procedure and I thought sure it would be pointless if I need Progesterone support and they don't give it Id have to go back to Napro for it. But as far as I can see they support your progesterone up to 12 weeks. So please God it will all go well.
How did you get on Blueeyes?
