29!

I can't believe it. They took 29 eggs. I feel kind of guilty reporting this, as I know a lot of women would kill for this kind of response. I'm sure more than a few are immature and won't fertilize, as we certainly didn't see 29 follicles of the right size in the latest ultrasound. But today, I'll take this wonderful news and celebrate!

Can I just tell you how much I love Vicodin? First time in awhile my ovaries don't feel like they're going to explode...

  2. WOW. I too can't wait to see how many fertilize-- I hope you have enough for as many FET's as you need-- and hopefully you don't need any! Would you consider donating unused embryos (I don't think I would)? Or am I getting ahead of myself here? :) Yay!!!

  4. i knew you'd get a shit ton of eggs. there's something about that lupron trigger that helps those eggs develop at the last minute (from what i've read). your mature egg number is gonna be huge as well. does lupron rock or what???

    i hope you're not too uncomfy and are resting up and enjoying the vicodin high :o) soooo excited to hear this. can't wait to hear fertilization report from ya :o) xoxoxoxo.

  30. Wow, 29!! Amazing! Just make sure to chug a ton of gatorade to avoid OHSS ... I went through that and it was rough ... not to put a damper on the excitement though!! 29!!! =)

  31. Here from LFCA. 29 is a superb number- well done! If you are at all uncomfortable (over bloated, gaining weight quickly), make sure to drink loads of Gatorade. It really really works, and you don't want to end up with any signs of OHSS.

    Fingers crossed for an equally great fertilization report!
