Egg Retrieval

Today was a good day, aside from the fact that I couldn't sleep last night and I had to get up at 5:30.

Sooo...when Dr. B came in to talk about how many eggs they were looking at he said that he would have liked to see me get more follicles on the left. There were 6 mature follicles total (5 mature on the right and 1 mature on the left.) and some smaller ones as of my ultrasound on Monday morning. He was hoping for about 6 eggs, but he said it might be only 5. C was very upset. Dr. B said that it was a good result and all we need in the end is 2 good embryos. C is ALWAYS the glass is empty guy.

Well, guess what....he got 10 eggs!!! He said that some more had come up on both sides!! Yay!We were really surprised. And now we just sit tight. They'll call tomorrow after 3 to let us know how many fertilzed and to tell us when to come in on Saturday. I just realized that 14 days from today, I will know if I'm pregnant or not!!! I'm very excited.

I am still exhausted from the anesthesia and the complete lack of sleep, so I'm already in bed.
Can't wait for Saturday. I haven't decided if I'm going to do bed rest, but I think maybe just for the weekend.
