Is history repeating itself?

I had the egg retrieval on Saturday. I got 7 eggs. Same as last time.  I got the call today that only 4 matured and all 4 fertilized. Also same as last time.  I will be going in on Tuesday for the transfer.
I am not sure about the grades yet. They will let us know on Tuesday.

So I am hoping the outcome is the same as it was last time. I will keep you posted.

The retrieval itself was nothing. Again, was put to sleep. This time I was a little more crampy but today I feel so much better.

I started the estrace and the progesterone injections are stating tonight. One of the major hormones of pregnancy, estrogen helps maintain the endometrial lining of the uterus. While some early studies have shown that patients taking both progesterone and estrogen supplements during an IVF cycle after the egg retrieval  have higher clinical pregnancy rates.
