Faites vos jeux - rien ne va plus

Retrieval went smoothly, much like last time. I was slightly
uncomfortable with the thought of having a strange man fiddling with
my lady parts, not my favorite position to make someone's
acquaintance. I shouldn't have worried because the doctor turned out
to be a woman. And then the anasthetic kicked in.

6 eggs were retrieved. Given my age and diagnosis (slight PCO) I think
that is low, and I'm concerned. Last time, on Men0pur, we had 12.
Perhaps G0nal-F is not my thing, though I'm sure my doctor will say
it's coincidence. Right now, I hope 6 is enough to give us an answer
either way.

In less than 24 hours we'll know more. I'm very worried, even though I
know there's no point in worrying. I can't change anything about the
outcome.

I really hope that you get some good news and that ICSI does the trick. I know this time is nerve wracking. Hopefully they don't make you wait to long to hear the results. I'll be thinking of you.

I'll say the assvice everyone always throws out -- it only takes ONE!

You are right -- waiting and worrying stinks. Sometimes I think it is worse than the actual results!!! I'll keep everything crossed for you today.

No assvice here. I'd be on pins and needles as well... I am hoping like Jenny that ICSI does the trick. Good luck!

Lut, I am really hoping for some good fertilization results with the ICSI this time! I can understand your worry - only natural - I'm going through the same thing right now... I know worrying isn't going to change something that has already happened, but it doesn't stop me.

Will be anxiously updating for your news!

Just hoping that you get a good fertilization report. Hope the wait isn't too long.

Between 6 eggs and ICSI, it's enough to transfer two this time and have two FETs of two. Here's hoping for that best possible outcome. I'll be thinking about you.

Dear Lut, I hope so much that the worrying turns out to be gloriously unfounded, and that you get stellar fertilization this time. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

I hope you're not worrying but am pretty sure you am. I think six is great. Not to sound Pollyanna-ish but it really is quality over quantity. I'm betting those are six really good ones you've got there.

Here's to a fab fertilization report.

I really hope you get some good fertilization news - I'll be thinking of you!
There's never a point to worrying but that doesn't mean we stop doing it! It's perfectly natural to worry as you go through each stage of the cycle. I do hope your worries prove meritless.

I am glad that your retrieval went okay. I understand why you are so worried. I am sure that I would be too, but like the others, I am hoping very hard that your fears are eased by an excellent fertilization report. Sending you a hug.

I will be hoping for a good fertilization report for you!

What can I write? I started to write many sentences, words, hope, love here right now, but I took it away all. I am thinking of you, have been throughout your cycle. I am sorry I haven't been more present. Lut, please know that I hope for this so much.

Lut, I hope that these 6 are of fabulous quality....

Thinking of you today x

Will be waiting and hoping right along with you! Hang in there.

I really hope the ICSI does the trick.
Hoping for you, Lut,

6 healthy eggs - fantastic result.

Keeping fingers crossed for the ICSI, hoping for a great fertilisation.

I know how nerve-wracking this will be for you ... hoping you get great news and can exhale soon.

I am so hoping that this works out for you. I keep worrying too, though I know it doesn't do any good. It just the only thing I can do.

Fingers crossed for good news tomorrow.

I am glad the retrieval is over. I hope you get a stellar fertilization report after the ICSI, I am really hoping that this all works this time aroung.

This must be a tense wait for you. I've got my fingers crossed and will be hoping to hear nothing but good news from now on. (C'mon universe...)

I'm hoping for a good fertilization report! Six is not a great number of eggs, especially with PCO. This game just sucks.

 
At 06 February, 2007 11:12, Blogger Twisted Ovaries said...

I'm hoping for us both, babe. I'm hoping for us both SO MUCH!

Lut - I hope the next 24 hours brings you good news.

Thinking of you .xxx

It's so hard. Nothing we can do at pretty much any stage to affect the outcome, but yet we worry. And worry, and worry. Thinking of you.
