the big two-oh

We are the proud owners of 20 retrieved eggs.

ER went smoothly. The last thing I remember was clearly and effortlessly reading a little sticker on the operating room light fixture over my head, and then I was back in the recovery room. I was a little crampy and a little queasy when we left, but overall, not too bad. Then, while I was sleeping, I missed a tylenol dosing time and (apparently) the lingering effects of my anaesthesia wore off because now I am s-o-r-e. I just woke up and took some more tylenol and hopefully it will start doing it's thing shortly.

I'll post again when the fertilization report comes in - probably won't be until late tomorrow afternoon/early evening.

Thanks to everyone who held us in their thoughts today. The hardest part is finally behind us!

Yea!! 20!! I thought of you in my first minutes this morning, while brushing my teeth. It was 6:30 my time, so 7:30 your time I think. I closed my eyes with my brush still in my mouth, and said a little prayer for you and M. I'm sure the fert is going to go perfectly.

I just found your blog through your BFF, inlocoparentis and caught up with your life (yeah, not so busy at work).
I'm so happy that you were able to retrieve 20 eggs, that sounds great!
I'll be following along now to see what happens and have added you to my blogroll.
Good Luck!
