Yes if you go to their website (google ERB) they will have info and you can take it anytime at their testing center. [ Reply | More ]

This is also my first IVF. I really wasn't that bloated. Just a little yesterday. RE said many eggs were small but that those eggs are sometimes also good. Of course, I’m just hoping for one good egg! So when you go for your first u/s, on the off chance they don’t see a lot of follies don’t despair! They get more at retrieval. I also read they can’t see all the follies on the u/s [ Reply | More ]

LOL. I am also a control freak! Called my RE day before ER b/c I was convinced that I would ovulate prematurely and there wouldn’t be any eggs at time of retrieval. Stupid I know. My advice is that, hard as it may be, is to stop researching everything on the net. I have spent countless hours researching and nothing turned out to be what I had convinced myself would happen.
