Smile I had my retrieval

Hi everyone

I just wanted to update you and share my good news.

I had my retrieval on Tuesday Sept. 21st and it went well.

They obtained 22 eggs!!
Of the 22 eggs 13 were good.
(6 were too young and 3 were too old)
Of the 13 good ones I have 9 fertilized embies. (5 with IVF and 4 with ICSI)
The lab will call me on Friday with an update on the 9 embies. I'm really happy with the results. I couldn't believe it when they said 22 eggs. wow.
My transfer is booked for Sunday Sept. 26th. (5 day transfer)
The Dr will transfer one embie only. Due to my shape of my uterus I can only carry one at a time. I am at higher risk to miscarry and for pre-term delivery as well so twins would really put me at high risk.

Hope it works, keep your fingers crossed for me.
Thanks for your support.
I will keep you all updated.
