Anyway- we wake up early to get to the clinic this morning. They told me on Sunday to take the shot at 7:30 and to be at the NCCRM clinic at 7am on Tuesday for a 7:30am sharp egg collection. We got there at 7 but no one was at the front desk. We wait for 15 minutes. Nothing. I walk all around the facility- and I can only hear people in the operating room. I call the NCCRM from my cell phone to try to get their answering service to page a doctor. Finally I find someone in the back who tells me I'm not even on the schedule. He said he would page Dr. Toma.
He finally comes out and says Dr. Gerald Mulvaney will do my IVF after they finish a tubal ligation. Somehow- my place got bumped on Monday and they decided I was going second. I think I finally went under anesthesia at 9 am, and done with egg collection by 9:30. So instead of 36 hours after the HCG trigger, I'm 38 hours past. Does that mean anything?
OF ALL THE FOLLICLES THAT I HAD- I GOT 4 EGGS? I'm in total disbelief. I could have taken a lot less drugs for a shorter amount of time for 4 eggs. Was it because the didn't want to do IVF on a Saturday or Sunday? Was Toma at the beach for a long weekend and couldn't be here Monday either? Who is Dr. Mulvaney anyway? Does he specialized in IVF???
They wouldn't tell me how many were mature so I'm thinking the worst. They said I'd hear from the lab in 5 days. Great. No fertilization report? No day 3 check in? Who are these people?
