A bunch but not as many as I'd hoped..

Well, we got 17 eggs...so 2 less than last time. hopefully they are all mature and fertilize nicely, which I will find out tomorrow. I think it is a good number but part of me wanted TONS just so we had a bunch to test. However, I have heard that the Saizen will actually get you possibly less eggs but the quality of those eggs are better...so that matches up. Another girl on IVFC said that she had the worse cycle on Saizen (her post right after ER) because she got less eggs and then 3 days later she posted saying that she takes that back, because a lot more made it to testing than she ever had before. So, I still have hope that I am in the same position.

I am somewhat confident because I seem to have a better result when I stay on the same exact dosage throughout the cycle and this time nothing changed at all. I stayed on 1 menopur and 150 gonal-f the entire time until that one day I coasted. Also, it seems that my estrogen level was exactly the amount for 17 eggs, so DH and I are hoping that its a good sign. Of course, I'm nervous.

One final note- I am always so impressed with CCRM. It has been such a great experience both times. Everyone is so nice and so professional that I feel so well taken cared of! On that note, I'm going to go and relax for the rest of the night. I'll post my fert report tomorrow! Thanks for all the well-wishes!

17 is a great number and I really hope that the majority of them are mature and fertilize. Keep us posted on the fert report and I have crossed my fingers for you!

17 is great, but I know it's always disappointing when we get less than a previous cycle. I hope the quality blows last cycle away. I can't wait to hear your fert report! Who did your ER?

Sue, you're doing so well. Wow! I just know you're going to get a great fertilization report and that you'll have big chunk going to blast. The hardest part will be the CGH test wait. But hang in there! :)

I was checking earlier today-this is awesome news!!!!!

That is a ton of eggs, esp. in light of what you say about saizen causing less but of higher quality-

I can't wait to hear the news tomorrow!

Your cycle is the first cycle (other than ours) that I can follow right from the start and obsess on!!!

Have a great night sleep, may you dream of your 17 babies!!!! :0

Hoping and praying for a great fertilization report hun. I think 17 eggs is fantastic! I have never had more than 12 and only 8 or 9 are usually mature. You did a great job. What was estrogen if you don't mind me asking? So when do you and B go home? Can't wait to hear the wonderful news tomorrow. Sweet dreams!
