"Freeze All"

So, I got word today that Dr. G. recommends "freeze all" embryos and come back for FET in order to avoid OHSS.   I have to say I was a little disappointed, but I don't want to end up sick.  My sister in law's wedding is in 2 weeks, so I need to be healthy.  Honestly, I think my mind and my body needs a break from all this.

I have to continue the dostinex and also start cetrotide tomorrow after the retrieval.  More and more drugs into my body.  I hope there are not too many side effects.  I felt very nauseous today around lunch.  I don't know if that is from the HCG shot or the dostinex.  I don't have much of an appetite at all.  

My retrieval isn't until 11 am tomorrow, so I imagine I am going to so thirsty!  I am not going to go all out on the salty foods tonight.  We'll start that tomorrow after the retrieval.  Hopefully I will tolerate the anesthesia ok.

Today we went up to Rocky Mountain National Park and it was really nice.  My husband brought his fly rod and I just hung out on the bank of a creek and rested.  I wish I had been up for a hike, but I didn't want to push it.   We'll have to do that next time we come out, which will not be too long!


  1. Best wishes for a great retrieval tomorrow! I know waiting for a FET is probably a bit disappointing but it really is for the best. I've had sucks - big time! Also, I've heard that CCRM docs prefer FETs as they feel it lets the woman's body heal after retrieval and return to a normal state before transferring any embryos.

  2. Thinking great thoughts for your retrieval tomorrow! It looks beautiful there!

  3. Good luck with the retrieval today!

  4. Good luck!! My thoughts are with you today!
