Eleven Eggs!

Thank you for praying for me! I was so distressed this morning, but peace of mind came as things got going.

We left the house at 5 am for the surgery center, got checked in, and the nurse went to work on that IV line. Took her a couple of pokes, but she did it and I started feeling better within minutes. The procedure began at 6:30, and I was in recovery around 7 am. When I woke up, Dr. D. was there to tell me that he'd retrieved eleven eggs! My response? Praise God! After all the pain last night, it was so good to have our expectations exceeded.

I've been resting ever since we got home this morning. Had some pain a while ago, but Tylenol and the heating pad are making a difference for me right now.

We'll know about fertilization tomorrow. I'll post then.

Such a great number! Congratulations on your successful retrieval- I hope you are comfortable and resting and that tomorrow's news is excellent. So sorry last night was so challenging and uncomfortable. Drink lots of water and take good care of yourself. The day after my non-retrieval I had some belly issues-- the anesthesia maybe? in any case, be well and I'll be thinking of you!
