Home from Egg Retrieval

We are home from ER and they got 11 eggs! I am thrilled. I was hoping for 8+ so 11 is wonderful. I am nothing if not consistent. I have had between 9 -11 with each cycle so far. I do not know anything about maturity at this point.

I will get my first fertilization report tomorrow between 12pm-3pm.

We are excited to hear about Sean's semen analysis results as well. This is his first one since the varicocele embolization. The lab tech knew we were nervous so she popped her head in and said, "The sample is looking great!" I have no idea what that means, but we'll take it.

My in-laws were on the road before we got home, so I was relieved. Sean is making me some eggs and toast for breakfast. It is a chilly, windy day and we are looking forward to snuggling up on the couch and resting. I am also hoping to finish Eclipse today!

Just wanted to reiterate a big congrats and good luck! Great news, Em!

Enjoy reading Eclipse. I need to get in on the Twilight action. I've heard such good reviews.

Wooo-hooo! Eleven is a GREAT number - so glad to hear things went well this morning, and that your man company was nice and oblivious :) Give me a call later when you're feeling up to it...and thanks for the plug yesterday!

Woot, woot!!! Super news. I am glad to hear the Twilight sickness is so widespread - my sisters' husbands want to kill me - they disappeared for days after I gave them the books.

Sending really good fert thoughts your way!

Great news!! I hope lots of those are mature and fertilize. I know how it is -- soooooo hard to wait for that call. But you did a great job. Rest up and enjoy the eclipse!

Oh, Em, I am so happy for you! 11 is a wonderful number and I'll be thinking about you tomorrow until I hear how many fertilized. Glad to hear about Sean's sample, too! All is looking good for this cycle!!
