Warning :I’m drugged. A lot. This might not make a lot of sense but I know you will love me anyways 🙂

Retrieval went well this morning. The nurse was fantastic with the IV and put some numbing stuff in the vein first. I didn’t even feel the IV go in. The anesthesiologist was amazing and spent a lot of time with me going over all the weird autoimmune things to make sure we were nice and safe.

Then they wheeled me in and put me in THE BIGGEST STIRRUPS EVER! Y’all, these are like moon boots minus the fronts! Everyone was super nice an in about 3 minutes time I was out cold. I find going under to be so strange and amazing. Here one minute gone the next.

I woke up to Dr. A telling me they had gotten 27 eggs. 27. What a beautiful number. We won’t know till tomorrow how many were mature and will fertilize, but I feel that 27 is a good number to work with. If we can walk away from this with 6 good frosties I would be overjoyed.

I’m home now and on the couch with Mr. Husband, a soft blanket, a cat on my legs and a bowl of lentil soup and some dark chocolate. Mr. Husband knows how to care for me! I’m super dizzy and sometimes feel like I might hurl. And oh my gosh does my va-jay-jay ever hurt! And my rectum from days of fierce constipation. I keep assuring my bum that a poo cocktail will come tonight. And now, sweet readers, I need to sleep. So, so tired.

Love to each and every one of you. Thank you again for your support over the past few weeks. I know I don’t think I would have made it this far if it weren’t for you.
