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!!!!
