    wishing you a safe journey and a great retrieval and put back! Will be looking forward to hearing all about it when you get back. Fab that you don't need to do anymore shots - I remember how great that felt! So funny people asking you if your dh is going with you or not!

  • Yeah Julie...the time has finally come. From now on, it's smooth sailing. The progesterone supp. are pretty gross. Not so much at first, but with me it built up inside me and when it finally decided to come out it was like a dam had burst....it was totally gross. Hopefully you will have better luck with it. I'll be waiting patiently to hear how everything went. Good luck and take it easy after they put those embies back

  • Julie, just wanted to wish you good luck. I remember my dh and I went out for chinese food after the ER. I never did tell my docs that one!!! Have fun being in Boston, I live about 20 minutes north. Let us know how it all goes

  • Hi guys, I'm still with ya! I'm posting fom a laptop though and feel completely lost without a mouse...

    I had the retrieval yesterday and it was exactly as Missy described it. I was impressed with Boston IVF and the doctors and nurses and how everything was run. As usual I was a total baby but they did everything they could to make me fel safe and comfortable, and for me the entire procedure was completely painless.

    Anyway, they retrieved five eggs, which may not be spectacular (the woman next to me has 22!) but they are OUR five and I feel very proctective of them! We had ICSI done, so hopefully now there are several nicely dividing embyos over there in Waltham - I'll find out late this afternoon.

    One bit of bad news - the doctor said there is some fluid in my right fallopian tube, a possible hydrosalpinx, which may be toxic to an embryo, but not definitely so. He's going to discuss it with Dr. Alper and we'll see what happens. My RE had told me there was no fluid in my tubes at the time of my laparoscopy, hopefully that's a positive thing. As part of my "New & Improved" attitude I am NOT going to to look anything up on the net - for once I am going to go with my gut, which at the moment is feeling very positive and maternal.

    And I did get chosen for the trial drug, which I am supposed to begin today, actually probably right now, yuck.

    I'll keep you posted and thanks for all the well-wishes!
    Julie
