Yesterday (2/15) I had my egg retrieval. The procedure went well. Very little pain afterward and no nausea, which I was thankful for. They only retrieved 9 eggs, however, and only 5 of those were mature. So, we only have 5 to fertilize (w/ ICSI) instead of the 6 we planned, but it actually will turn out well that we won't have regrets about not fertilizing more b/c there were no more. I get my egg freezing money back too since we won't have any to freeze. Spoke to the embryologist today. She said three of the eggs showed signs of fertilization (day 1), but it's too early to tell about the other two. We should know tomorrow. The wait is going to kill me. I kept looking at my phone all day to see if anyone called yet. I'm just so thankful I had any eggs to fertilize and that three of them may have taken so far. Keeping my hope and trust in the Lord.
