13 - Elizabeth Unexplained
Lots of data but no answers
Retrieval was today. They got 13 eggs. That's a personal best for me, the previous cycles were six, nine, and six. Of course that's no guarentee of a better outcome, but its a good place to start.

As we were driving back from retrieval my cell phone rang. It was nurse ditzy. It seems that our consent forms expire on Friday, and given that transfer is Saturday, that's a problem. There were several phone calls back and forth. Much as I say uncomplimentary things about nurse ditzy, she did a good job of trying to minimize the hassle that this little oversight caused. Unfortunately we could not go in to sign them today, some trifle about me not being able to sign legal documents the same day as I'd been put under. So, we are going to have another early morning for poor psychohist while we go in tomorrow morning to sign forms again.

Congratulations - that's a great number! Is transfer definitely Saturday, or will they put it off until day 5 if the embryos are doing well?

Why couldn't psychohist sign the documents today and you tomorrow? If they're giving you crap about both of you having to sign at the same time or the forms are invalid, they don't know what they're talking about.

I'm glad it's getting resolved, at least, and I'm glad that someone thought to look at the date on the forms, even though it could have been earlier in the process.

Good luck - I'll be thinking about you on Saturday!

Because I'm scared of going to the doctor by myself.

Okay, because we didn't think of it ... also it seems to require an appointment, and the doctor probably wouldn't want to book two appointments. As for not signing documents on the day one goes under, that didn't make sense today because Elizabeth was clearly fully recovered, but I will say that I could definitely understand it if we'd had the same anaesthesiologist as last time.

13 is different from our previous results by 3.5 standard deviations, so I think the lack of luperon was definitely a good thing. Now we just have to hope that it had as good an effect on egg quality as on quantity.
