The Retrieval

All went well. Both sisters #1 & #3 came which was really great :-). When anaesthetist told me (after connecting the IV) that I am now falling asleep, I was thinking it will still take some time (and I think I was waiting for the count down they always have on T.V). Well it must have been as he said LOL. I don't know how long it took (feels like in no time at all, though I was dreaming while sedated) but suddenly someone tells me I can open my eyes, and I'm awake! (and on a bed which was rolling to recovery). Imagine that - someone tells me to open my eyes, and puff I'm awake.. [I am a very deep sleeper..]. Anyway, you want to know what my first question was? No, not how many eggs were harvested (though that was the second..) or any other logical questions. but if while sedated I was with closed or open eyes! (and I'm ignoring the fact that I was told to open them hence they must have been closed!). I think it was my way of being in shock that it was over so quickly..

And now for the results.......... 10 eggies :-) They'll call me tomorrow to tell me how many fertilized, and probably Tuesday will be the transfer.

Thank-you all for all your good wishes!

Yay for 10 eggies!!!
Anesthesia is the strangest thing. It's like one second they are telling you you're going to feel sleepy and you never do feel sleepy, you're just gone.
