Piece of Cake

January 14, 2010

I had my Egg Retrieval today and I’m happy to report all went well.  Mr. B produced his sample in record time without any spillage.  Whew!  One less thing to worry about.  Then, the nurse’s got me prepped and ready.  The drugs were great and I didn’t feel a thing.  DRUGS=HAPPY ME!  After everything was over, Dr. RE popped in to tell me he retrieved 20 eggs.  10 eggs were the perfect size and maturity.  The others were a little smaller so we’ll have to wait and see how they fare out.  Overall, I’m pleased with the results and we’ll get our first fertilization report tomorrow.  My home work assignment today is to nap, drink my weight in fluids and relax.  I have everything under control.  And for any of you out there about to have your ER, don’t sweat it.  The worst part of the whole process was the nurse pulling the tape from the IV off of my hairy arm.  I’m off to my cozy bed now for my nap.  I’ll be back tomorrow to update on my fertilization status.  Thanks to everyone for the well wishes.
