So yesterday was my egg retrieval, which went amazingly well as I wrote yesterday. Today the doctor called and said that of the 28 eggs, 23 were mature and 18 of them fertilized! I am still in shock about the 18! Actually I think I am still in shock about it all. I am so grateful that things are going so well after the rocky start this cycle. I had gotten so discouraged by everything that I couldn’t even see myself being in this place. Wow, I am just in awe.

Today I am still quite uncomfortable. Yesterday I ended up taking three percocets and I am trying to stay away from them today. It is definitely less painful today than yesterday, hopefully ibuprofen will be enough today. I am still very sleepy today though. I am glad that I got someone to work for me today. I am definitely not up to being on my feet all day. The only thing I have to do today is go to Walmart and find something for my niece’s birthday party tomorrow. I don’t know what to get her. She has more toys than any two year old should have, has tons of clothes, really she needs nothing. So we will see what I can find today. I can’t believe she is going to be two!

Well I am getting sleepy again. I think I will go take a nap and when I wake up head off to the store to find something for her birthday.

18 fertilized…wow!
