This morning was my retrevial. I think it went ok too. When they gave me the IV they blew a vein, but were able to get it in the arm with a smaller needle. DH was so great but struggled with them poking at me. I woke up a lot easier then I ever had under anastesia before so that was nice, but I was really nauseated and very crampy. I didn't really know what to expect, but I feel like I just have terrible period cramps. Good news, they were able to retreive 21 eggs. I was very excited about that number. We paid the extra for them to do ICSI, so tomorrow we will get the call to see how many fertilized. I am not sure what a normal number is, but I am excited.

Now when we talked before he said he would put in 3 eggs, and today when we were talking he said he hopes to put in 2 on day 3. I was a little shocked, because we had mentally prepared for 3. I am scared that if we only do to, and it doesn't work, there will be the what if factor. Either way, we will talk to him about it more when we have a number in sight.

DH is stressing because he may not make it for the transfer because he has no one to cover him at work, and he would have to take off 5 hours in the day to get there and back.

I started my progesterone shots today, it didn't hurt till about 5 minutes after it was in. I had DH massage it around as I read you should do, but its still a but tight. And I itch at the injection site.

Anyway thats my update.

I always itched at the injection site too, I think I had a bit of a reaction. I just wanted to say that 21 is AWESOME!! You should have plenty to freeze for future cycles if need be. Congrats. 2 eggs sounds like a good number, that is what we put in and we got 3 babies!
