Hi Danaa, met the doctor today. He said he will thaw all since he expects to get only 1 or 2 good quality blasts from 9 grade 2 embryos. He did say it’s not uncommon for these to become top quality blasts. I was hoping to get 4-5 blasts so I wouldn’t need to worry for the next time ( being v greedy lol)! He said they don’t transfer thawed embies immediately because they need to figure out if they are alive. Considering my age And amh, he prefers to transfer blasts and not embies. So will go with his assessment.
I didn’t ask him about the blood tests ( frankly I forgot). Thanks a ton for being there.. you are such a great emotional support. Wish you all the best too!

Gem how old are you if you don’t mind me asking?
Of course we are all “greedy” in this journey.
I think your doctor has a good approach and I’m confident they will do what is best for you!!
I will always be here for everyone who needs me!!

Thank you, Danaa for welcoming me in this group.

Have you already done your retrieval? If yes, how was your experience of actual retrieval?

Danaa, I am 36 ( turning 37 in June).. I also worry if I want to try for my next one ( this would be our first one) egg quality might have deteriorated.. but I realise I am
Worrying too much about the future .. lol.
Rosey, welcome to the board! I finished my retrieval on Friday (12 jan) and due for the transfer next month. Wish you all the best!

Retrieval was okay - the actually procedure was quick under general anaesthesia, had a bit of cramping/ Soreness for 3-4 days but bloating took almost 7 days to subside. I also gained almost 5-6 pounds during the last 3 weeks ( combination of stress eating and meds I think). Hoping to reduce it before the transfer! All the best!

Rosey my retrieval was a long time ago,it wasn’t in any pain afterwards,I was put under and when I woke up I went down 5flights of stairs:)) I had some bloating and I was a bit uncomfortable a while after the procedure but with tons of water,gatorade and all protein diet I was ok shortly after.

Amazing story Ruby. I really had hoped that I will be one of those who 'get accidentally pregnant ' while preparing for ivf. But turned out I am not one of those lucky ones. I pray that you get your 2nd bfp soon...

Don’t worry about the weight Rosey, bloating and fluid weight gain will go away v soon. I did a lot of stress eating ( have always been overweight and struggling with weight .. so Frankly a couple of extra pounds don’t matter that much now.. lol).. once we get our BFPs, I am sure this will all seem trivial.. did I mention I am 5.3 tall and weigh 150 pounds.. gained about 15 pounds through stress eating during IUIs :)..( hopefully won’t interfere with getting pregnant)..
All the best for seeing some nice big follies in your scan.. my experience: my scan showed about 6 follies 16+mm but I got 11 eggs.. (9 fertilised).. so don’t stress if you don’t see that many in the scan.
