That's the number of follies Pati said the donor has cooking. I'm hoping that's the same as her last cycle.

She said retrieval will be Monday or Tuesday, so I'm anxiously waiting to find out on Friday so we can make plans and get airplane tickets and hotel reservations. I'll feel better once we're set to go and once we're up tere.

I'm getting nervous about whether this is going to work. I don't want a huge number of eggs. Just enough for a couple of pregnancies. If this is the same way she stimmed last time it'll be fine. She had 13 retrieved and 2 put back and a BFP for the couple as well as 3 frozen embabies. I really want this to work and the closer it gets the more nervous I am that it won't.

I was really doing fine and was not worried/nervous at all until today. The next month is going to be SOOO hard. I have to remind myself to take it one step at a time. First ER then worry about ET then worry about Beta then the first u/s. Ugh it's going to be soo hard to stay calm.

Basically I'm just really excited and nervous and can't wait. I just have to get through this week!!

I totally understand your being anxious. I rememebr it so well. My donor ended up with 12 after ER (I think). We ended up with 8 blasts. Did a single emby transfer (which I highly recommend unless you want twins) and we have 7 frozen which is more than enough. I almost wish we didn't have so many becasue it raises some issues for us down the line (what to do with the one we don't use).

I guess I am saying ...I was so worried but it all turned out better than we could have expected. Since you are smack dab in the middle of all of it I don't expect you to be relaxed...I just hope a positive story will help you a bit.

So glad your donor looks good right now - those sound like great numbers! I have heard of people who had way more but most of the eggs didn't fertilize. Our donor had 14, 11 were mature and 10 fertilized - of those 6 went to blast and we transferred one. Currently I'm waiting, (WAITING!!!) for our 3rd beta as the first two were positive but on the low (really low) side. But we still have 5 blasts! Hopefully our story (along with Peeveme's) will help you get through until transfer - good luck!

Good Luck to you - the numbers sound good. I know the waiting is the hardest part!
