That knocked me for a loop!

OK... Here are the numbers everyone has been waiting for...

25 eggs retrieved
22 were good enough to fertilize
19 fertilized successfully
They are leaving 10 out, and freezing the rest.

I should get a call today as to whether we will do a day 3 or day 5 transfer. I am debating taking mext week off, as well. If we end up dong a day 5 transfer, I may have to.

The Wizard was an hour late, due to an OR procedure that did not go as planned. I figured I was going to wait, anyway, so I zoned out with my ip.od. I think I even dozed off for a while. The nursing staff was fantastic, and really made the experience pleasant. They even took my ip.od into the procedure room and listened to my music as they did retrieval. They were all a little surprised at how exclectic my music tastes are. I have everything from Jimmy Buffet, Aretha Franklin, some 80's hip hop, Rhiannon, Madonna, Sugarland, Dolly Parton, Doc Watson, and Johnny Cash. I even have some celtic punk on there. They seemed to enjoy it, though.

Boy did I hurt later that evening! Once the block wore off, I really hurt. Unfortunately, the I had available made me feel worse. I did not figure out the was the problem until last night. Thankfully, once I stopped the lortab, I felt immensely better. Of course, still hurt some, and there is some nausea, but it is not at the level it was at yesterday. I feel good enough to put in my contacts and drink water. I do wear out fairly easily, though. I guess that is not too surprising.

Now to wait for the Wizard's call.
