The Good and the may be not so good....

The good news is 19 of 26 fertilized with ICSI and dividing normally this morning. They are planning a day 5 transfer on Sunday. YAHHHHHHHH!!!!!

The maybe not so good news is fluid on both ovaries is small but present. They and I will be watching for symptoms and signs of OHSS. We are all hopefully that my body adapts and takes care of the fluid on its own. So I am chugging the fluids and trying to stay relaxed and off my feet as much as possible between patients.

I will kepp you guys posted as we know more. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers for a successful ET, pregnancy and no OHSS.

My transfer was touch and go also because of fluid. We weren't sure until the very end whether they would let us transfer. Keep up the fluids (Vitamin water with electrolytes was my friend) and salty foods!

Hoping things go well and that you have a smooth transfer, Maryanne.

Great fertilization! And I was eating tons of frozen dinners - those things have tons of sodium!

That's good news on the 5 day transfer! That will give you plenty of time to calm those ovaries down. Wishing lots of luck!
