retrieval

Yesterday was our retrieval. I am anxious because we had 3 follicles that were 19, 20, and 21 and out of those we got 3 eggs. I am disappointed we did not get more but I have to settle with what we got. Now I am waiting to find out if they fertilize and if so what will be the quality. I will return on Wednesday if all goes well for the transfer.
Everything went well yesterday as far as the procedure went. I was nervous due to the fact that I have never had anesthesia before. J was my rock and she supported me through it all. Man I have to tell you though that is some good sleep. All I remember is walking into the OR and lying down on the bed with the stirrups and putting my legs up and the nurse telling me that the anesthesiologist was putting some medications in my IV now and that she was going to put a blood pressure cuff on my arm and the next thing I know I am in recovery with J by my side. It all went so fast. The rest of the day was spent sleeping and lying around doing nothing but hydrating myself.
