Today was retrieval day and everything went great.
My husband went first checking in at 6:30am, surgery at 7:30. I was prepping for my 8:30 retrieval when the Dr. came out to tell me it was a success. He went as easy as possible knowing how deep he would have to go to retrieve what he needed. This was his second time doing this surgery. He had a very difficult recovery after his last one.
I went in at 8:30am and was done within the hour. This was my 5th retrieval. I woke up well from the anesthesia and barely felt cramps. It is now hours later and I can't believe how great I feel. I normally feel extremely sore and want to sleep all day. Ok I did take a nap when I got home but that was due to the 5am wake up and excitement leading up to the big event than that I needed it - like prior rounds. Don't get me wrong, I'm not about to go to the mall or gym or anything.
I had 7 folicals 3 days ago
They retrieved 10. This is above average for me. Yay!
I will find out tomorrow how many fertilized and they will be secured in the Embryoscope by then.
See here for Embryoscope
I feel relieved and real positive! Lucky round 5?
