Egg Retrieval Day

I'm blogging live from our ride home from our Egg Retreival... On my phone and fresh out of anesthesia. 

Don't mind the spelling errors or anything that isn't exactly English. 

14.

That's the number retreived today :) 

Rob had a good sample though I don't recall exactly what his numbers were. My embryologist will call in the morning with our fertilization rate. We are doing half ICSI. 

I feel pretty good- sore with some spotting and drowsy and a little dizzy - but all things considered I feel well. 

I'll give a better recount of today tomorrow. 

For now please pray for my 14 to become little embabies and that I continue to recover throughout the day!

  6. I am praying girlie!! Stay rested and drink lots of gatorade and v8 juice so that you don't run the risk of getting OHSS :) I'm speaking from experience.

  15. I had 14 too! Unfortunately only 10 were mature enough to fertilize. Anyhow, I will hope your 14 do wonderfully and give you some good embies to work with. Now lay down and sleep friend. BTW, can you e-mail me? I'd like to ask you if you would do a guest post for my blog.
