This morning was the egg retrieval and all went well. I have two words for you:
Yeah, it hurt! Anyway, they got 8 eggs in the end and we’re hoping for 3 nice embies for our Friday transfer. I’ll hear more about that later.
The good news about the retrieval is that I was asleep (under anesthesia) for the entire procedure so I don’t remember anything. The bad news is that when I woke up it was like the worst cramps I had EVER felt in my entire life. I also may have mumbled some gibberish to Matt that is just a little bit embarrassing and not very lady-like. Oops.
Thank God I listened to the Dr. and got a substitute for today. There is no way I would have made it. I could barely walk up until the last hour or so. Did I mention only 2 more days of school for me before my 10 week summer vacation?
