Just wanted to give a quick update on the retrieval now that I'm back up. The good news is that Dr. Zed harvested 10 eggs (7 on the right, 3 on the left). The bad news is that the recovery from the retrieval hasn't gone so well.

I'm finally up and running, but it's been a tough battle back. I had severe nausea and much more cramping than my last retrieval. I threw up several times during the recovery and had to stay at the clinic for an additional 1.5-2 hours for monitoring. After leaving the clinic, Doc and I had lunch and unfortunately, I lost most of it on the drive back home (luckily, we had taken a plastic bag from the office for just that reason!).

Now, we're just waiting for tomorrow's call to hear how many of those eggs matured and fertilized. I'm praying that we have better results than last time.
