Wow, that anesthesia is a doozy isn't it!? I'm just now starting to feel back to normal 9 hours later. 11 eggs retrieved and we will see what the report is tomorrow! Also, I had a large cyst on one of my ovaries that my doctor was able to drain at the same time, so really grateful to have that done too!About to start episode 4 of Big Little Lies, couldn't resist after seeing all of you talk about it, haha

CONGRATULATIONS @DecemberDoll27 !!
@latvaughanash I think the anesthesia had the opposite effect on me. I took it easy yesterday, but didn't nap all day, then I had trouble falling asleep (tried at like 9:30pm and didn't sleep till like 11:30pm - and it certainly wasn't from pain). Hope you're feeling better today.
@rainbows2018 I'm sorry you're feeling down. Nothing about this process is easy and I think it makes it harder that no one really talks about it IRL. Hang in there!
@adirat - I can't remember in what time zone you are, but I hope you aren't starving/didn't starve and that your ER goes/went swimmingly.
AFM, I decided to go into work today because I'd rather be in the office today than on Tuesday (presumably day 5 update call - even though I tend to have to wait till day 6 - and we'll be on vacation the rest of the week anyway), and totally missed the text from my RE. We have 18 little embabies growing - 11 from ICSI, 7 from IVF. DH is in disbelief. This is more than the total number of embryos from our first three cycles combined this year and more than twice the highest number we've had in a single cycle before. Now we wait and hope a good number continue to develop normally to blast for testing...
-----TFAS!FET #3 Dec 2019 (natural cycle w/o trigger, w/P4 support) of one PGS normal 3BB XY 12/16/19 - Beta #1 12/24/19 (139), Beta #2 12/27/19 (482)
@latvaughanash Yay! 8/11 is a FANTASTIC percentage. Fx for many high quality blasts
@emmasemm Haha, thanks. At least the text was in writing :P Maybe the three-month break did me good. And maybe the whole new RE/protocol/lab thing. Especially after our first three cycles this year, these numbers are quite surprising, but we'll take 'em of course. The biggest difference was probably no OCP or Lupron to suppress me before (and luck that I didn't develop a dominant follicle w/no suppression), and maybe no testosterone priming before. We actually reduced stims after 3 days and I only stimmed for 7 days. My nurse actually ordered me 10 gonal-f 450 pens ($0 meds copay at this point for the rest of the year) and I had one leftover from last cycle - I only ended up using 5 (and 6 vials of menopur for the last 3 days). Also ~33% more hgh per shot (33 instead of 25), and whatever I had leftover (should have been ~66) with my trigger. So who knows? But since 40's just a week and a half away quality's always the question.
