A Giant Sucking Sound

The eggs were sucked out of me this morning.  I was far less nervous about being medically assaulted this time around.  I ditched my dignity at the door, calmly stripped off, donned the gown, and assumed the position.  Hubby was dispatched to the Back Room to peruse the festive selection of literature.  This month's spread:  Ho's for the Holidays.  At least that's what I imagine.

Got eleven eggs this time.  I feel neither happy nor crappy about this number.  I'm trying not to think about it until I know how many are mature, how many fertilized, and most importantly, if there are any great ones to put back.  I need one with staying power. That's all that matters.

This part of the process is really not fun.  Up until now I was being proactive - stabbing myself, going to appointments, and getting probed.  I could see and feel progress happening.  Now it's all out of my control.  Of course, things have really been out of my control for a long time, but now it's even more out of my control.  I hate that.  All I can do right now is lie around the house like a slug on drugs.

Good Luck! 11 is a great starting number. I will keep my fingers crossed for your fert report.

Ho's for the holidays! that's funny.

It's interesting. I was thinking I can't wait until the eggs were out of my body because then my ovary can't mess things up. I know what you mean about wondering what's wrong every time I feel pelvic pain. I never thought about all the reasons the next part can be not fun too. One worry at a time, huh?

11 sounds good to me! Good luck!

Hooray for 11!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see how they grow in these next few days...praying that you'll have some sweet little ones with you for their '1st Thanksgiving," even if they are only brand new little embryos settling in for a looooong winter's (and some spring too!) nap!!!
