19 is the magic number!
So here I am in bed resting after my egg retrieval this morning. Everything went really well. We got up at 5 (after not going to bed until 12 because we watched some stupid UFC fight at our neighbors, that turned out to be actually kind of entertaining... anyway) got to the doctors about 8:30 and they took me straight back and started an IV. I just want to say that everyone there is SOOOO nice, they are just the sweetest. They brought George back and showed him how to give me my inter muscular injection since we start that tonight, although he's passing the job off to a friend of ours who is a nurse (thank God!) and then we sat and waited... after about 20 minutes of George acting like a total toddler in the room, messing with my bed, trying to look under my gown, pushing buttons, you get the idea, they finally came in and gave him his cup and took me away. I went into the OR and they got me situated and I was out like a light. Then about 20 minutes later they were wheeling me back into my room. It was over in a flash. The nurse told me they got 19 eggs and I just started crying. George was like "what's wrong, are you in pain?" and the sweet nurse said "no more like relief, it's pretty typical" LOL! She was exactly right. So now we start the game of waiting. The office will call us tomorrow to tell us how many eggs fertilized and then they'll watch them grow and decide if we will transfer them back on Wednesday or Friday. Hopefully we'll have enough fertilize and grow properly that we'll be able to freeze them for some future snowbabies! I'm off to rest for now, I'm having some light cramping which is totally normal but still uncomfortable. Nothing like staying in bed on a rainy day anyway! Thanks for all of your prayers, keep em' coming cause we're not done yet!
