Egg retrieval day

Today is the day we retrieved the eggs and sperm. Went into hospital, finished the paperwork, paid the fees and waited my turn. I was then called into the ward by the sister / nurse assigned to me.

Wheeled into the theatre waiting area, I waited a while for the staff to arrive and was poked yet again with a giant needle, in prep for the drugs to come. When the Dr. arrived, I was wheeled into theater where Dr. injected Dormicum and next thing I knew, I woke up in the recovery ward.

Apparently I asked how many eggs there were over and over.

There were 12.

That’s a great number. Let’s hope all goes according to plan.
