Resting well

Yesterday's egg retrieval went very well. We got 12 eggs and I am just sitting here waiting to hear the fertilization report.

For J we had 15 eggs with 8 fertilized, so here's hoping we get at least 6 so that we can go to a five day blast. If five or less fertilize we go to a day three transfer, their rules not mine. I should proboly explain for those who haven't gone through this, a five day blast is when the cells in the embryo blast apart. The Doctors at our clinic like to go for blast as they find this has a better success rate than an embryo that is still in the cell stage. A day three embryo would only be 8 cells. That is not to say that a day three won't work, it has just been proven to be more effective to go to day five.

The surgery was quick and relatively painless, I asked for half the meds which was a blessing, there is nothing worse than being knocked out by drugs you don't really need. I was doing so well I was allowed to leave a half hour after the surgery instead of an hour. I rested all day on the couch going in and out of sleep, watching grown up shows on tv and reading a good book. Ahhh, it was great. And today, my Mother is here cleaning my house so I don't have to, gotta love it.

Will update again after getting the fert report.
