I am pleased to report that on Saturday Dr. Schoolcraft retrieved 14 eggs, telling us that it was a very "standard" retrieval. He got 1 egg for every follicle he flushed. He used a smaller needle, so the recovery has been much better than the past two retrievals (stupid monkey clinic!).
So here's the data in summary:
14 eggs retrieved
10 eggs mature
7 fertilized with ICSI
Of the 4 immature eggs on Saturday, 3 matured by today. Tomorrow the embryologist calls us and lets us know if any of the late bloomers fertilize.
We will get a call on Tuesday morning to find out if we're doing a 3 day transfer or a 5 day transfer.
We are happy with our decision to do a fresh cycle and are hoping and praying for some amazing embryos on Tuesday.
Now, back to my movies and slothfull lying around!
In a Nutshell.
