I haven't posted anything since right before my ER because I was so nervous. I will recap....
Sat. the 15 I went to a monitoring appointment at HRC in Laguna Hills. Cindy saw 14 good size follicles and gave me instructions to trigger that night and I would have my ER on Monday. I was originally supposed to have my ER on Tuesday and for some reason that made me a bit nervous.
Sunday 8/16- Monday 8/17
My DH and I drove out to Laguna Hills and stayed overnight at the Lodge. We live over an hour away and thought that Monday morning traffic would be a nightmare, especially since my DH had to do his part for MS ay 7:30 a.m. and my ER was not until 10:30. At my ER Dr.P retrieved only 10 eggs. I was pretty let down considering my ultrasound a few days earlier. My nurse was Kelley, she was fantastic! The cramping after the procedure was very uncomfortable, but Kelley gave me a shot and a pill and it helped lessen the pain.
I received a call from Lori today that out of the 10 eggs, 8 were mature and all 8 fertilized. I felt some relief but then agonized over the next few days of how many would make it through PGD. I asked Lori to call me with a repor t on how many made it to day 3 for PGD. I had originally paid for a 5 probe but thought since my numbers were dwindling down that I may opt for a 2 probe.
I received an email that all 8 made it to PGD but my gut told me to go with the 2 probe. I worried more and was anxious for Saturday to find out the status of my embies.
My DH and I got to HRC and waited for 15-20 minutes, meanwhile I didn't get a bracelet or beta orders. Needless to say, I was freaking out!!!! Finally, the nurse called me in and I asked her if I was going to have a transfer, she answered yes! I felt so much relief. Dr. P came in and shoed me pictures of 6 little embies. Of the 8 that went to PGD 6 were normal and all 6 were girls! We decided to put in two, they were both blasts and both graded B/C. He did say that they were starting to hatch. I l just stared at the picture of my embies, I couldn't believe that my DH could make so many girls. The procedure was similar to a pap smear and took about 5 minutes. We left and headed home for some bedrest.
Thursday 8/27 5dp5dt
I got up early this morning and took a test (FRER) and I first glance it appeared negative. I went back to sleep and when I woke up again I went to the bathroom and took another peak and it looked like a very, very, faint line. I tested later that afternoon and it was a total BFN.
Friday 8/28 6dp5dt
I woke up and took another test (FRER), it looked negative after 5 minutes but after 10 it seemed to have a super faint second line. I showed it to my DH, who was insisting that I stop testing, and he agreed that there was a second line although very faint.
Saturday 8/29 7dp5dt
I woke up tried to take a test but I couldn't get enough pee, the control line never appeared. At 11 am I decided to try again. After 4-5,minutes I saw a faint BFP!!!! I so happy but also trying to remember that it is still very early.
