DAY 59

Jan 05 2018

Went back to Dr. Babyev’s office and talked about the steps to do IVF.

Spoke with Dr. Mary Turn, psychologist. It is mandatory with UT Southwestern, to make sure we are aware of the emotional, physical and financial toll we may face in the future.

좋아요

DAY 66

Jan 12 2018

Went to Dr. Babyev’s office to have my Pap Smear tests and to do a sonogram.

He used a catheter in my uterus to inflate it to see everything better.

After I tried getting up and he told me that I need to rest first. Didn’t tell me before I tried getting up.

So I was in the fetal position for about 45 min with two or three nurses fanning me with magazines.

It was the worse cramps I have ever felt.

DAY 97

Feb 12 2018

Went in for my first egg retrieval. Because the procedure is so critical and I needed to remain as still as possible, I was put under anesthesia.

They retrieved four eggs. We told Dr. Babyev to do ECSI on the eggs and he talked us out of it. He said that he has one or maybe two cases a year where no eggs fertilize the natural way in a Petri dish. He recommended that we let them fertilize the natural way.

We will find out tomorrow how many fertilized.

좋아요
좋아요

DAY 98

Feb 13 2018
Not a single egg fertilized.

We were devastated. 😰

Dr. Babyev called to let us know.

Asked if we wanted to do emergency ECSI and we said “Yes”
좋아요
좋아요

DAY 99

Feb 14 2018
ECSI didn’t work either

We have to start all over
좋아요
좋아요

DAY 108

Feb 23 2018

Had a meeting with Dr. Babyev to see what are next steps. He suggested we do mini IVF’s because I have deminished Egg reserve.

A full blown IVF wouldn’t result in anymore eggs than a mini IVF. A mini IVF just means more egg retrieval’s and less medication.
