Update....

So doc finally called. He was discussing the blood work results. They checked, white blood count, liver and kidney and protein counts.

White was 10.5 the low side of normal.
Results showed that I’m slightly anemic which I’ve always been.
Liver & Kidney looked good.
Protein 3.8 out of a 3.5 – 5.5 range
Some other Protein 6.4 out of a 6.0-8.5 range

He said the odds of me getting very sick based on my blood work and my appearance today is very low. He is okay with proceeding with transfer.

He said to be semi-conservative we would transfer 1 great quality blast. 2 great quality if we want to be semi-aggressive and 3 if the quality is not that good. He said we will let the embryos talk to us tomorrow and depending on the quality that we are working with we will go from there. He will not be there to do the transfer but has already spoken to the doctor who will be doing it.

I have to there at 9:00 a.m. to get two hedastarch IV bags and the transfer is at 10:30.

Yay! Prayers answered so far! I'm so amazed at how well your body is fighting off that ohss!!!!

Now that your risk of getting sick is low, I've got my fingers crossed for 2 grade AA blasts transfered with some left over to freeze :)
