Retrieval was today. I was so nervous going in, but there are great people working at the surgery center who helped keep me in good spirits. However, I was not prepared for the pain after the retrieval. I am staying off my feet, but can't seem to get comfortable in the bed or on the couch. I keep telling myself it will be worth it in the end. As one of my friends said, it is just preparing me for labor pains. :)
They were able to retrieve 23 eggs today. Now we just wait for the embryologist to call and update us on how they are progressing. Prayers going up. Fingers and toes crossed.
