IVF-Day 24-Aspiration

I woke up from my nap about an hour ago and wanted to let everyone know what happened this morning at the Egg Retrieval.

Are you ready for this? 17 eggies! 

The aspiration went so smoothly. In the operating room I could not keep the smile from my face every time I thought about why we were there. I woke up in recovery and asked the nurse if we were ready to go back to the operating room now. She just laughed and said "honey, you are in recovery". I think I asked her how many eggs I had 5 times. 

This was the first time I had ever had and IV or Anesthesia, it was so cool. DH told me that when the DR came to talk to him after, he said they only expected to get 10 eggs from me but they got 17. I will get a call tomorrow with the fertilization report and let you know how many fertilize. Now I am going to become a couch potato for the rest of the day.

Thank you for all the well wishes and support. I could not get through this whole process without you.
