I had my retrieval this morning, and everything went well. The anesthesiologist had a hard time getting my IV in because I have terrible veins, so that delayed us a bit, but then everything else was fine.
So, here's the magic egg number: 28!
Holy cow! So I'm thinking of starting my own village.
I have been feeling crampy, but have had no bleeding since I left the Dr. The crampiness just sort of feels like I have big gas bubbles in my abdomen.
Since we are doing IVF because DH had a vasectomy, his sample was already there, frozen, and has been for a month. They kept forgetting this though and kept talking about DH being ready to produce a specimen! While he was in the waiting room they called him and put him in another room, which he figured was where he would be waiting for me -- until he saw the "adult content" written on the video tape! So he went out and told the nurse that he was pretty sure he didn't need to be in there!
They will call me with the results of fertilization tomorrow and give me a time for my transfer on Thursday. I was the first retrieval today so they thought I might be the first transfer as well.
Jenn: I can understand your anxiousness! I don't know how long I will be able to hold off POAS!
