EPU Today

Well I had EPU today. I was guessing I was in for a good number as yesterday I was so sick (really wanted to die) I had to go to the Dr and get a jab. But when I got up today I felt really good so I was guessing I wasn’t going to have the haul of 19 I got last time. Scott was betting on 14 and I had a bet of 15. 🙂

When I woke up after EPU I couldn’t keep my eyes open. Was the sleepiest I have been at EPU. I asked the nurse how many eggs (my old Dr’s have always had it written on your hand but my new Dr likes to come and take to you about it so the nurses don’t like to say). The nurse said he would be in soon and I would have to wait. I felt so good compared to yesterday that guess of 15 dropped to maybe 8.

I went to recovery and my Dr was in doing transfers so we had to wait a long time. I asked again how many and the nurse gave in. She looked it up and he had written 20+ !!!!!

Finally got to see our Dr. We had 27 eggs!!!! PLUS he said there were 3 more in me. He had 3 nurses pushing my left side and at one stage lying on me but he said they were just out of reach and his thoughts were ‘ you have 27, no pint doing damage to your insides just to get 3 more’! Lol

He said he doesn’t transfer if you have 20 or more eggs and would normally freeze them and make me come back when my E2 levels are down but he said I could be his ‘first exception’. I have to ring him tomorrow to find out fert results and then again on Sunday night. He just wants to make sure I have not turned to shit over the weekend. I have been put on a high protein diet and also 3 protein drinks per day. As well as the 4 Lt of water.

He said the thing he was really happy with is that all my follies were the same size. A lot of the time when you do a short cycle your follie sizes are all over the place.

Now you are all going to be proud of me for what I asked him next. I use to get only 5 or so embies on 976 units of drugs before I changed to this clinic. This clinic no longer uses synarel. So since doing cycles with out the synarel my numbers have jumped big time. I talked to him today about my next cycle (lol) and asked if he thought it would be good to drop my dose to 450-600 and get less eggs (I’m not over the moon about the 27 eggs as I know more eggs can a lot of the time mean even crapper quality). I would much rather 8 – 10 eggs and get 4 good embies than 27 eggs. He agreed and said that I’m probably one of those that has trouble ‘getting going’ after having synarel. So that’s the next thing I want to try. Lower dose with NO sniffing.

Also (sorry I know this is becoming a small novel), I dropped S’s sperm today off the bench. The lid was on but all I could think was how cartoon sperm have faces and I may have given the poor things brain damage. Ha ha ha

So I told the scientist that they may be brain dead. She giggled and said they would be fine. She went and had a look and came back and said he had WAY more than normal and they were MUCH better quality! She said I may have knocked some sense into them.

This is the first cycle that S has NOT given up drinking. Hes been drinking VERY high proof bourbon and thinks this is why his swimmers are doing so well! 🙂
