    Thanks for thinking of me ladies! ER went fantastic!! When the told me how many they got, I started crying, LOL... damn hormones. They retrieved 15 eggs!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it... I kept asking my DH if that was right. Before I went in for the ER, he asked how many I'd be happy with and I told him I'd be happy if we got 8, same as last time. DH said he thought we'd get 11, but I was skeptical. I'm still in a little shock that they got so many! I knew this was my best cycle yet, but I didn't think it would be that good! Now, I'm just hoping enough fertilize and make it!! Depending on how many we have, I'll either do a 3dt of 3 or a 5dt of 2. I'm really hoping that I'll be able to do a 5dt... I've never made it that far. It was really funny when we were done, we have to check in at the front desk to make sure DH's sample was okay and everything. Well, we get there and the girl is just coming back to the desk and she asks his name and she's like "oh you are fine, I remember your name, you've got really good quality" LOL... DH was proud as a peacock, let me tell you!!! He cracks me up

    Toe is doing good today... it was wicked sore when I got there, but the anesthesia and stuff they give you after made my toe feel really, really good, LOL! It's starting to wear off now so I can feel a little pain, but it's all good.

    It's so hard... I want to call my mom and tell her, but we haven't told any of our family that we are doing another cycle. We've been telling everyone that we were going to start our next cycle later in the summer... we decided not to tell our families because I just kept feeling like I was disappointing everyone when it didn't work. My head knows that's really not the case, they are disappointed for us not disappointed in me. So, to take some stress off, we just didn't tell anyone... we are hoping to surprise them with a BFP!!!

    I'm so thankful I have you all to share things with. *HUGS*

    Whoohoo That is freakin' awesome that you got 15 eggs. I would've been crying also. I remember when I was told they got 12 from me I didn't believe it. My DH even sent me an email saying they got 12 after they told him so he wouldn't forget and so I would trust that it really was 12. Funny about your DH's quality. That is something to be proud of.

    I figured the anesthesia would help your toe.

    Otherwise, how are you feeling?

    I can't remember...doesn't your clinic wait to call on day 2 to give a fert. report? That's how the last clinic I went to did it.

    Amanda- even though I've never had to go with the IVF route I can tell you that you are not alone in keeping TTC a secret. I have felt the same exact way you have, not wanting to disappoint.

    I am a Lurker here but wishing you great success this cycle.
