All is not lost!

Well, I didn’t want to let jay’s post title go to waste and things DO feel a little less desperate today, so it seemed appropriate.

Whilst my ovaries have not undergone some kind of miraculous transformation hitherto unimagined by the scientific community and produced a veritable hoarde of plump follicles for harvesting, the four teeny follicles that they did manage to squeeze out have developed nicely over the weekend and are approaching a workable size (20, 18.5 and 2 at 17). My lining has also got its act together.

This means that….[drum roll]….we trigger tonight at 11:30pm and are scheduled for egg collection at 9am Wednesday morning.

I’m doing my best to ignore the sneaking suspicion that Thursday would have been a better option (except the clinic don’t do retrievals on Thursdays – only day of the week they don’t). I’m also trying not to be irritated that the acupuncturist I’ve been passed over to whilst mine is off work can’t fit me in for an appointment beforehand (though he did manage to shoehorn me in on Wednesday afternoon – acu experts, what’s good scheduling around EC/ET please?).

So all is not lost. Three cheers for the underfollicles. We’re backing them all the way.

  2. This is the best news ever. I’m fricking fracking excited for you twos.

    The most important accupuncture sessions are PRE and POST transfer. Don’t worry about missing sessions around the retreival days.

    Glad everything is going rather well 🙂

    My clinic is closed on Sundays, apparently there IS a little bit of leeway in when they can do retrievals.

    I think I had acu a day before retrieval. 1st transfer I had it a couple of days before hand and either the day after, or that afternoon (memory is rusty). With the FET I had acu an hour or 2 before transfer, and then again the following day.

    My AcuGuy said as long as it’s within 3 days either side you should be right.

    All the best for Wednesday!
