200th Post - Divide That By Ten And You Get

.....20 eggs!!!!!

I'm back at the hotel, trying to rest before we leave at noon to go back home. All went well, according to the nurses.

I'm sore, with cramps like a period, pain about 5/10 and drymouth that won't quit, but I'm not complaining.

I thought for sure we'd get 15 eggs but I told my mom on the phone Saturday night that I thought we'd get 20 based on my history of growing eggs quickly at the end of stimming during IUI cycles.

When DH told me 20 I cried - for the first time in months I cried. He thought I was sad or something because my crazy drugged up state made me apparently lose my facial control or something but I was so happy and I still am!!!!  Also I aparrently kept asking him the same questions over and over and he thought it was funny.

I'll post a thorough detailed account of the experience but for those of you who are having ERs soon - totally worth it, nothing to get freaked out about, and I'm a big pussy who hates pain and I feel like I did just fine. So I'll sit here and rest and think about all the babies we're making today!!!

Finally, the fert report call will come tomorrow morning. Before we left I asked about DH's post-wash count and it wasn't available but the embryologist said DH and I could go and that he had enough to ICSI.

I'm so happy - thanks to all of you for the support and good wishes....clearly they worked!!!!

You are off to a great start! Hoping for lots of mature eggs that fertilize well and then grow grow grow!
PS I always came out of anesthesia crying and then asking the same questions over and over...geez I am sure I made a fool of myself at least once during the five IVFs :)

It only takes one, but isn't it nice to be off to a good start? Congratulations and fingers crossed for a good fertilization report! Hopefully, you're well on your way to the three healthy embies you want for transfer.
