Sending all the good vibes and good thoughts I possibly can!!!!
<3 all you ladies! Going to bed now and hope for the best.
Just came back from ER...I'm sore in the ovaries, although I think it's more the bloating irritating them than anything else....
Looking even more up again:
1st U/S - 3 follicles, dr said "high chance" that they wouldn't be able to retrieve ANY eggs
2nd U/S - 4 follicles, dr said "this is not ideal" for a 40 year old woman (although I'm actually 41, but whatevs)
3rd U/S - 5 follicles, dr said "We're gonna work with 4 follicles, maybe 5" but the last one was on the left ovary, and it was questionable whether they could even get to it.
TODAY - ER - got 8 eggs. 6 were mature and 2 intermediate.
I want to thank all of you for praying and sending good vibes my way...still a long way to go but at least we cleared the first hurdle.
It was better than ANY expectations I've ever had about this.

Great news! Hope your fert report is a good one. Also, hope you're recovery post ER goes smoothly.
Tiffany, thanks! So far not bad at all, still off and on sore in the ovaries, a little bleeding down there. Pretty sure it's just all the poking and prodding. The fertility dr doing the ER apparently poked a couple more times than usual in an attempt to grab every mature egg he could find in the ovary...hence the 8 I guess.
I was really pleased to hear that he was able to obtain 2 eggs from the left ovary (the one with the huge endo cyst), apparently that ovary is still working somewhat. Last U/S only one large follicle there and they weren't even sure if they could get the egg from there. Wasn't too bad apparently b/c my left ovary doesn't hurt, it's my right ovary.
Yay!!! That is awesome! I hope the soreness goes away quickly.
Awesome! I'm so glad they were able to do even better than expected!!! I hope the soreness is VERY short-term for you and you feel back to yourself soon.
Congrats! Take care of yourself. T&Ps with you.
