I was pleasantly out like a light for the procedure, which is a good thing because it involves a needle going places that are not comfortable for needles to go (if there even are such places at all). When I awoke, my eggs were all taken, and the doctor had told Fraser that my ovaries were roughly the size of oranges!!! No wonder I'm feeling a lot of discomfort.
|I didn't have oranges but this is the size - and two of them!|
So, I can say that the retrieval was a great success and we got out a bunch of eggs and half of them fertilized. It's a game of reduction now over the next few days; some will continue to divide, others will not make it as is the way with these things. Some will survive until day 5, and one lucky embryo will be put back into my womb, hopefully to nestle into the cozy lining I have prepared for it and grow happily for nine months.
