Back From the Harvest

I'm home and sitting on the couch after a nice short nap. We had the ER at 9am and everything went smoothly. Actually, much better than what I had expected.

I have to apologize in advance if this posting isn't quite coherent -- I'm still a bit woozy from the meds. I don't remember anything from the procedure, but Dr. P did tell me that I woke up once during the procedure (I wonder what I said??). I don't recollect anything except waking up and asking them how many they retrieved and then 30 seconds later asking them again.

Overall, I feel ok. A bit hungry and some initial cramping right after the retrieval, but I'm feeling pretty good now other than being a bit woozy.

I was told they retrieved 10 eggs from 11 follicles, however, one of those eggs may be a bit overmature. Dr. P explained that it was normal for that to happen during long stim cycles.

Now we're just waiting for the fertilization results which we'll get tomorrow morning. These next 24 hours or so are going to be agonizing.
