Last week we were getting ready for our egg retrieval. Multiple appointments, ultrasounds, blood work, etc etc etc. At that point I had turned into a human pin cushion! We finally got the call on Wednesday that we would be moving along with egg retrieval this past Friday. We were THRILLED!!

Friday morning arrives, the nerves set in. I get prepped for surgery, go into the operating room, and next thing you know I am hearing the doctors and nurses calling my name and telling me that I’m all done!

When I finally come to, the wonderful nurse whispers in my ear:

“We retrieved SEVENTEEN eggs! Normally we are happy to get about 8 – 10 eggs, so you did great!”


Needless to say I’ve been a little more sore than I’ve expected and didn’t do much this weekend. Lots of rest.

The worst part about the weekend – waiting for THE CALL from the doctors office on Saturday to find out if we had any fertilized eggs. Around noon time, my husband finally dragged me out of the house. It was good to get me moving. We went to do some errands. As we walked around Shaw’s grocery shopping, I held my phone in my hand and repeatedly stared at it as we walked up and down the aisles like a lunatic lolol!!

As we were checking out of the grocery store, my phone started to ring. I RAN to an area where I could not only hear, but pull out my pen and paper.

The nurse said “We have great news!”. WOOHOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Out of the 17 eggs, 14 were mature. Out of the 14 mature eggs, TEN fertlized!!!!


I was SO happy. Once I finally explained everything to B, we got in the car and started driving out of the parking lot and I started to bawl my eyes out.

Legit ugly cry.

I was so happy. Happy! Thankful! Grateful! THRILLED!!!

We will have our embryo transfer on Wednesday. FINGERS CROSSED!!!
