Eggy Update


Hey, y’all.

I’m back from retrieval, chillin’ in the bed with my good buddies percocet and gatorade. I will write the whole story at some point, but the important parts are:
  • I made it. I was definitely scared, but even though I won’t say it was all peaches and ice cream, it was nothing as bad as I’d feared.
  • THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the messages of support and especially the stories. All the stories — even tbean’s scary one — were helpful in one way or another. I’m gonna get all weepy if I say more than that now, but the bottom line is you are all amazing. And that’s not just the drugs talking.
  • How many ounces are there in a quart*? That’s how many eggs there were up in my ovaries. No wonder my back’s been hurting.

*32. Thirty-fucking-two. Yes, I am on OHSS watch.

  1. WHOA! Look at you Ms. 32. Amazing! I'm so excited for you guys. Such fantastic news. I hope Sugar, percocet and gatorade all take really good care of you. You're clearly an egg-making machine.

  2. Wow, that is some NFA egg making on your part! Hope this is just one of many bits of great news coming your way this cycle!

  3. Whoohooo!!!! That's freaking awesome. Glad it mostly went well and I hope the drugs they gave you worked magically and your feeling better soon.

  4. That's eggcellent! (sorry – that was so corny that I couldn't resist). Eat lots of salty, fatty foods and keep chugging the Gatorade! I'm so eggcited for you! I'll stop now. πŸ™‚

  5. Damn. That's a shitload of eggs, lady. That's freaking awesome! I can't wait to read your more detailed report.

    Did your RE put you on medication for OHSS watch? I'm on cabergoline. That combined with a trip to the acupuncturist this morning has me feeling a lot less bloated than I've been for the last few days. I've been so scared that they won't let me go through with the transfer this month because my ovaries are over-stimulated. I'm starting to feel like things will be okay, but still a bit nervous.

  6. omg! 32! that's good. drink your gatorade and rest. thinking of you

  7. Holy crap, that's a good number! Hope the fert report is equally as fantastic! I would love to have a preggy buddy…

  8. Damn, lady, that is some crazy egg-making you did! Well done! Drink some more Gatorade and get back in bed πŸ™‚

  9. Holy Shit woman. That's a lot of eggies. Start guzzling the gatorade…and Wooohooooooo!

  10. Woo eggieeee hoo! Shit girlfriend 32, my goodness very very good. So glad all went well and so waiting to hear how your “girlz” fertilized, I am betting a whole bunch are getting down as we speak. Yeah so exciting! xoxo

  11. That is a fantastic number. Hoping for more fantastic news very soon!

  12. …scrolls to bottom of the milk-bottle picture…no way! 32? Wowee! πŸ˜€ That's fantastic! Best wishes πŸ™‚

  13. WOWSER! THIRTY-TWO. Not 16 which was my first guess – a quite respectable number itself, but thirty-two, that is big.

    Good on ya. Drink up!

  14. wow~ that's pretty impressive. Hope you are taking it easy!

  15. woooooooooooooooo!!! HOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
    That is fantastic!

    Not that you called for any OHSS help me throughs- but here is something that helped my aching ovaries after ET: smart water and protein. I lived on kashi bars and smart water until beta and it totally helped me. I was also on so much progesterone shoved up and in every hole that the protein seemed to help counter some of those side effects.

    SO effing excited for ya'll and very much looking forward to the next update!!!

    and of course more details!

    (assisted hatching? ICSI or natural fert??)

  16. 32 is crazy amazing! Hope your rest, meds and electrolyte drinks do the trick and your OHSS watch turns up nothing.

  17. Holy cow – that's an impressive yield!!!
