Cycle News

Things went well yesterday with the retrieval. 11 eggs retrieved, 9 mature, and 8 fertilized. We will find out on Friday how many make it to the three day mark. We are shooting for a five day blast transfer.

To be completely honest, I have been trying not to think too much about this cycle. This may be self-protection against the disappointment of another BFN - I am not sure. Or maybe, I am not over the DE solution. I don't know. I think that I have been really down lately due to the hormones. Lupron stopped yesterday morning so I am only about one day out. The estrogen didn't provide a pick me up this cycle - not sure why. I started the progesterone yesterday evening. I am on the gel version so I don't have to endure the IM shots which is good.

I feel a little bit overwhelmed with everything else going on for me right now. There is so much to talk about, but right now I am too tired to go into it.

Each cycle seems to get longer and longer. I am exhausted. I am worried about absolutely everything. I am sick of being a whiner and complainer. I am ready to be back to normal - but hoping that I am anything but normal for the next 40 weeks.

Here's to hoping........

Yes, here's to hoping! I'm definitely hoping with you. Good luck with everything, and best wishes from a fellow whiner and complainer (you're allowed!!! it's situational!)

I'm sorry you're feeling so down, but don't worry about it. You have to do all the whining you can and this is the best and safest place to do it, just get it out of your system and don't feel guilty about it ok? :) Thinking of you!

8 eggs is so wonderful. It's lucky 7 plus 1 more for good measure!

There's a lot going on in your life. You're fully entitled to be tired and overwhelmed. Wishing you some peace and lots of rest and much goodness with this cycle.

I know what you mean--sometimes those emotions are so huge and it is so exhausting to actually experience them that it feels like someone has placed a bubble between yourself and the feelings. They're close--you can see them. But they also feel so far away. Do what you need to do to get through these weeks. There's time to explore those emotions later on (they always seem to wait for you). I'm sending a lot of hope for this cycle.
