Now, I am snuggled up on the couch, vicodin on board, heating pad on my belly and a fire in the fireplace. I am still debating about going to work tomorrow, I am going to play it by ear. Did you guys go to work the next day or take it easy? I am just worried because it's not like I sit at a desk all day. Thanks for all the comments, positive thoughts and support this week, it made a huge difference. I can't believe less than a week ago, I was crying thinking my cycle was cancelled and here I am now with 6 eggs that will hopefully turn into some beautiful sticky embryos.

Egg retrieval is done! I work up this morning in a full on panic because my ovaries didn't hurt anymore and I totally convinced myself I had ovulated already. We got to the doctor at 8am, dropped off B's swimmers and were taken to the pre/post op room. I got to change into my super sexy gown which came straight out of a warmer along with a blanket so I was nice and cozy. The nurse anesthetists came in and talked to me and they were awesome. I got some really good drugs to relax me and then I was out. I don't even remember getting back into the post op room. The first thing I remember is waking up and laughing so hard I cried. Not sure what was so funny but B got a kick out of it. The embryologist came in and we got eggs out of all my follicles so yay for 6 eggs! Now I am just keeping my fingers crossed they all fertilize!
