Egg collection

I am far from thinking of a witty title today, but hey! I was just under anaesthetic less than 3 hours ago!!!!

Just got home from day surgery. I'm disappointed to say that I'm still really bloated, and I'm sore, but there is nothing else to be disappointed about, because today went AWESOME.

We got stuck in a little traffic this morning, which stressed me out a bit, but still made it to the hospital on time, so I'm happy about that!! DH had to leave me immediately, because he was booked in to make his deposit at the same time as my admission time. I had hoped to see him again while I was still in one of the little waiting rooms preparing for theatre, but apparently he just missed me. Oh well, I'm a big girl, I managed by myself :)

My RE had warned me that he may not be doing the procedure, because it depended on who was rostered on each day. But I was pleasantly surprised when he walked in the door and said he would be doing my procedure! He looked at my ultrasound report and said I must feel like a balloon that's ready to pop, cos there's so many follies in there. I could not disagree with that!

I also had the same anaesthetist that I've had at that day surg twice before, so I knew all my docs, which I think made thinks easier. He's the head of anaesthetics, you can't really ask for better, can you?? He was lovely again, and I was asleep in no time (does anyone else kinda like that feeling when you're going into a drug-induced sleep?? No? Just me? Okay...)

Woke up a bit sore, but nothing that a hot pack and some pain killers couldn't take the edge off. The nurse handed me a piece of paper with my result on it, and said it was no wonder I was feeling sore... (drum role please)

27 EGGS!!!!

I feel like I should be in the Guinness world records or something lol

One of the nurses who has looked after me every time that I've been there told me I'm a mother hen :) She's so sweet.

DH said that he did fine as well, and the nurse said the sample looked good. So now we wait! Fingers crossed for a good fertilisation report, it's DH's bday tomorrow. My RE said that with a high number of eggs, we had a great chance of fertilising some eggs that will behave for the full 5 days, so hopefully transfer will be Monday.

I think I will be even happier once I'm not so tired. I'm always a little knocked out after anaesthetic, even the lighter ones!! I'm gonna go lie on the couch and catch some daytime tv. DH is cooking dinner :)

You sure can stim! It's still amazing to me how many eggs people can get. Good for you! I can't wait to hear a great fert report tomorrow!

Thats great news! Glad to hear you're doing well.

Fingers crossed that they behave and do as they are supposed to.

Big hugs.
