Retrieval was yesterday. A total of 11 eggs were retrieved from 15
follicles. I'm pleased, though I realize the numbers don't guarantee
much. It means today is not 'game over' day.

I won't be getting a fert report. First news will be on day 3, telling
me whether or not I should come in for transfer.
Until then, no news is good news.

back home, I long to be home with my 'baby'.

11 is fantastic! I've never gotten nearly that many. Obviously it isn't a guarantee, but I like your odds a whole lot better with 11 than I would have with, say, 3.

Good luck! I hope you get great news in a few days.

11 is wonderful, It can only increase your odds, no?

I hope for no news at all until day 3.

Glad you baby is home!

Fantastic. 11 is a really great number. (It's also the number I had on my final successful cycle with my boys!)

Here's hoping no news is good news. Excited for you and happy to hear you are reunited with your baby girl.
