One day past Egg Retrieval

Well, yesterday was our big egg retrieval day. We got to the doctor's office at 9:30am. They took us in right away. I had to change into a hospital gown and lay down on a gurney. They went through everything that would be taking place - before, during, and after the procedure. I had an IV put in my left hand. They gave me some type of anesthesia right before the procedure. I just remember things getting blurry and then I was out. When I woke up, they were asking me to move from the table in the ER room back over to the gurney. They wheeled me back into recovery. I was kind of in/out of it for a little bit. Then I felt fine. Steve joined me back in the room. They had me drink some juice and eat a cracker. They also gave me a Darvocet for the pain.

They were able to get 8 eggs! We are waiting to hear about the fertilization report. The nurse said they will call this afternoon.

I'm feeling better today. I was very sore yesterday. Still a bit sore today, but much better. I'm just taking it easy.

Good job on the ER. Please let us know what the fert report is when you get it!
