Eggos?

We are back from egg retrieval. The doctor got 9 eggs. He was very happy with that. Of course, I wanted more. I wanted to be an over achiever. Apparently there were many more, but it was much too risky to get them. Something about a blood vessel being in the way.

I didn't put on my post anesthesia hysterical crying show. However, I did slightly embarrass the anesthesiologist and nurse when they brought Brian back and I started quizzing him about his part in this whole thing and whether or not he had a good time.

I'm very sleepy. And very sore. As soon as I eat something I can take something for the pain. Brian ran to the store to get me a heating pad. In the meantime, I'm going to take a little nap.

And we wait, until tomorrow, for the fertilization report.

Thanks for all of the prayers, well wishes, and good thoughts.

  1. I will be thinking about you and wishing you a pain-free and fantastic retrieval. My last one was four years ago and my next one is in a month, so I will be looking to you to provide a much needed refresher course.
    Thinking great eggs for you!!! Best of luck!

  4. I know you're nervous, but 9 is still great. I will say, 60 hours after the fact, I am starting to feel the bloat. I hear you just have to wait it out. Just in case...

  7. Definitely thinking of you and awaiting the fert report. Hope the heating pad takes the edge off. If not, I'm a big fan of the chocolate cure ;-)
