ER update, fert report, and more...

Well, sorry for the lack of updates. I have been exhausted and just taking it easy. Also full of mixed feelings but above all else, I need to stay positive. So, beginning with the ER. First, I had an acupuncture appointment bright and early before and it was awesome. Relaxing and almost put me to sleep. Then we went for the ER and all was good until they told me that I had to do more injections. The other ones, which were really no big deal this cycle, had to be given subcutaneous, or just below the skin. These shots, are the horror shots so I have heard. These had to be intramuscular, in my ass, and they cause wonderful bruising and soreness. Awesome.

I can handle anything thrown at me, that I am sure of. However, I was annoyed because they stated it was their protocol after a failed cycle, yet this was the first we had heard of it. My poor husband had to run all over trying to find it since our local pharmacy didn't have it. Had we known about this, we could have ordered it and had it here prior to the ER. Oh well.

So they retrieved 7. Not sure why the number was the same, but they showed some of them to Mr. W and stated how big and beautiful they are. We got the fert report yesterday and all 7 were mature, but only 3 fertilized. They are watching a 4th, however we won't know if it did fertilize and the quality until tomorrow when I go for the transfer. So, another 3dt, with some acupuncture before and after. Another early day, but its a good day as any to be reunited with our babies.
